A question on choice of materials...I know everyone keeps talking about Sintra brand styrene sheet, I wanted to know if these*
are acceptable stand-ins, because Sintra is expensive (where I've found it online) and most of the for sale signs I've seen now are in kits with stickers for $6+ each for just one sign, and are made of laminated cardboard half the time.
*Westward Plastics (UK)
23.5in x 48in (1128 square) @ $6 US for 1mm thick, $12 US for 2mm thick
*US Plastic Corp
40in x 72in (2880 square) @ $13 US for 1mm thick, $19 for 1.5mm thick, $36 for 2mm thick
US Plastic is cheaper for more at 1mm, but more expensive for 2mm. They're both different materials, I think; US Plastic is Styrene, Westward Plastics is "Foam PVC." Or are those the same thing? Will they mould and hold shape as well as Sintra brand?
