    Where to get Sintra (in the UK)

    Sintra seems fairly common to you guys in the US.
    But Could anyone tell me where I might get some in the UK (or is it known by some other name in the UK?)

    Cheers

    You could always purchase it online...

    This is the web site for the US Plasic Corp. - they carry sintra in all colors, any thickness and any size you want!

    Sintra is also known as foamex. You might try a plastic supply company.

    Try sign companies. Over here in the US I found some at the Kinko's sign stores.

    I think I was snookered by the fact that Sintra isn't Sintra over here lol.

    I used to live in Kent, can't think of anywhere locally where you could pick it up.

    Try looking in your Yellow pages under plastics manufacturers and suppliers.

    Good luck

    There's a couple of smallish sign makers locally, but I keep turning up just after they've emptied their bins...
    Frustrating really.
    Gonna try em again tomorrow
