What is Coroplast?
Coroplast may not be a word that you hear every day; it’s something of an industry term. Like Coke or Kleenex, Coroplast is a brand name that has become synonymous with its product: corrugated plastic. Coroplast® signs are utilized for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor uses. They are made of an extremely versatile extruded twin-wall polypropylene sheet of fluted or corrugated plastic. Coroplast signs are a lightweight and cost-effective visual communications solution, If you’ve seen an open house sign or little political campaign signs along roadsides, you’ve seen a coroplast sign. Corrugated plastic is incredibly durable while still being lightweight. It’s so lightweight that it’s the substrate of choice for those oversized spinner arrows that you see people dancing with on street corners. As one of our cheapest rigid substrates, custom printed Coroplast signs are perfect for advertising on a budget.
Coroplast signs that will last for years.
Coroplast is surprisingly strong and dent resistant considering its weight. The corrugated fluting reinforces the surface, giving coroplast signs a substance that will defy warping, punctures and crushing with normal usage. Completely waterproof, this substrate weathers the elements well. Large Coroplast signs, however, can be prone to bowing in high heat areas.
Full color, eye-catching signs.
Our flatbed printers can print directly onto rigid substrates with waterproof UV-cured inks, so your message won’t shrink, peel, or fade. The corrugated construction of the Coroplast gives the surface a subtle, ridged appearance. Please keep in mind when designing your sign that letters and simple graphics do well on Coroplast, but detailed images may have a slightly uneven appearance.Your custom Coroplast sign is ideal for outdoor usage. Coroplast must be supported by a structure of some sort. They insert easily into wire yard sign frames or A-frame sidewalk signs and Signicade stands. For a free-standing coroplast sign, check out our A-frame signs.

Custom Coroplast Sign Printing Options
Single Sided Coroplast Signs
If your signs or signs are meant to be viewed from only one direction you have the option to print on a single side of the coroplast sheet. We offer grommets on all of our 4mm Coroplast Signs if requested.
Double Sided Coroplast Signs
If you plan to have your sign viewed from both the front and back you will need to have your coroplast sheet printed on both sides. This saves money on an extra sheet of material but increases the price due to ink usage, never the less it is cheaper than ordering 2 coroplast signs that are single sided. We offer Rush Turnaround on all of our coroplast signs if requested.
H-Stakes for Coroplast Signs
We offer H-Stakes or wire-mounting stakes for an additional fee, add these to your order and turn your coroplast signs into coroplast yard signs for use in a grassy area.
Installation & Mounting Options

Coroplast Signs, Life Span & Care:
Our high-quality UV inks are the best available and can withstand the harshest of elements when used outdoors. When used indoors, signs can last up to 5 years with regular cleanings with mild soap and water. Please avoid leaving these signs in a hot climate or car, as they could potentially bend or bow. If you do need to store them in a HOT area or car make sure to stack them as flat as possible to prevent any warping.
- Wipe off in the direction of the corrugations when cleaning.
- Do not leave Coroplast signs in direct sun or in a hot car; they may bow or bend if not laying flat.
