Correx board is an economical, lightweight, waterproof and versatile sign board used for display boards or advertising boards and is supplied in several sizes, from A1 to A3.

Correx is light, rigid and extremely cost effective. It is ideal for many kinds of sign displays and advertising applications.

The correx board we normally supply is 3 mm thick and because of the large quantities of these boards sold, it is also the most economical board available. However you also get 2, 3.5, 4 and 5 mm thick boards. It cannot rot or swell like timber or cardboard, because it is molded from polypropylene, a type of plastic.

Correx is similar to corrugated cardboard, constructed with a hollow box tube centre, known as flutes. Correx boards are mostly used for Estate Agent signs in South Africa.

To keep your costs down, the standard sizes available for purchase off the shelf are:
600mmx400mm (A2) and 800mmx600mm (A1) and 500x300mm (slightly different to the A paper sizes).

You can also order the board to any size that you wish to have at a slight cost premium. The most popular correx board you see on pavements measure 600 X 400mm, which is approximately A2 size.

We also now have the tools available to custom cut the printed boards to any shape you need. We can print and cut boards to any simple as well as complex shape. If you need a triangular or circular shape, we can do it for you.

As mentioned above our printed direct boards can be cut to any shape. We can print and cut shaped signs, selfie stands, life size custom cutouts, or any other stands.
