Corflute & PVC Signs

Corflute signs are a common inexpensive solution for temporary signage. Corflute is an effective and durable ribbed or fluted plastic material that is available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. It is lightweight, weather resistant and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Corflute signage is versatile and is a great option for short-term advertising or informational signage. It is regularly used in the construction industry, for event advertising, for political advertising during election time and by real estate agents to advertise open homes or homes for sale.


Corflute signs can be produced in a single colour or full colour using imagery and text or simply a text or graphic based design. Our design team is available to help you create an eye-catching design if you need help.


We offer Corflute in 3mm or 5mm thickness and it can be cut to any size required. 3mm Corflute is an inexpensive thinner fluted PVC board with fluted texture in its faces. It is designed for short term signage. 5mm Corflute is a thicker fluted board and is more rigid.


Corflute is very flexible across the fluted direction so it works well for three-sided signage or wrap around signage. For a more rigid sign, Y flute or PVC board is a better substrate option.


Indoor corflute signs will last for years. Outdoors, if exposed to high levels of UV and weather the life expectancy is less than 12 months. Lamination is used to protect graphics, reduce reflection or to allow graffiti to be removed. If you want your signs to last for many years outside or to protect them from graffiti, request a suitable laminate.


Alternatives to Corflute are Y-flute, foamed PVC board, Aluminium Composite Panel (Alupanel) and numerous other superior substrates.


Why Choose Corflute Sign Printing For Your Business?


It is versatile and attractive. The distinct pattern caused by the production process of Corflute makes these signs stand out well. Being plastic, they allow for bright, colourful digital printing. For a sign with a smoother finish, consider using Y Flute or PVC.


Corflute is portable. Attached to a round bar with a couple of cable ties, your Corflute sign can be stuck in the ground and pulled out and moved to a new location easily.


Corflute is customizable. Choose either a 3mm or 5mm thickness and single or full colour print. Generally rigid panels come in a standard 2400mm x 1200mm sheet size. If the sheet size is not large enough we can make your sign any size across multiple sheets and can manufacture signs in any complex shape or simple shape including circles, squares, triangles or hexagons.
