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. Correx is 100% recyclable.
