FAQ's on Designing and Manufacturing Signs

Indigo Hoarding
  1. Estate agent flag or T boards?

    Our T Boards are manufactured from 2 sheets of 4mm Correx that are heat welded on each edge with the post running up through the centre of the sheets.

    Our Flagboards are produced using 1 sheet of 6mm heavyweight correx with a 50mm margin on the side of the board, the blank margin of the board is then inserted into the slot of the post to create the 'Flag' image.

  2. Do you count white as a colour on a sign board?

    No. The white of the correx is not counted as a colour, blue and red onto the white correx would be classed as a 2-colour board.

    Correx is the standard rigid waterproof material used by estate agents and developers as a temporary signage solution when you are looking for quick results and maximum impact.

    We make and print on correx boards to order and have a high turn around based on your timings. Correx is not only durable and waterproof, it is also very cheap to produce which allows us to offer you the best prices.

    They come in 4mm, 6mm, 8mm or 10mm thickness and various standard sizes.

    We have two large format, flat bed printers with UV cured inks and conventional screen printing solutions for those who prefer traditional methods.

  13. What is Foamex?

    Foamex is a brand name for PVC foam sheet that is fairly dense with a smooth finish.

    Foamex is mainly used for indoor exhibitions and display graphics but the thicker sheets can be used outdoor signage where rigidity and weatherproofing is important.

    The boards come in three thicknesses 3mm, 5mm and 10mm and are easy to drill and shape.

  14. What is Dibond?

    Dibond is ACP or Aluminium Composite Sheet. The sheets consist of a Polyethlene core sandwiched between 2 sheets of aluminium. They are 3mm thick.

    The sheets can be drilled, screwed and shaped and are the best signage solution for large format printing of hoardings and large signs.

    They are rustproof, they can withstand high wind loads and do not deteriorate in the sun.

    They can be used for shop fascias, events & exhibitions or even as road signs.

    Its low size to weight ratio and outdoor durability make it the premium board for printing advertising signage.
