What is correx?
Correx is a fluted plastic board which is made from corrugated polypropylene. It’s rigid, colourfast, waterproof and weatherproof, which makes it perfect for outdoor advertising and signage. Correx is also incredibly lightweight and around 3mm thick*, meaning it’s easy to transport and install at your chosen location.
*Thickness varies depending on chosen size
How to design a correx board
Whether you’re designing your new signage yourself or are enlisting the help of your experienced in-house creative team, designing a correx board is simple. Depending on the size which you are choosing, each will be set up slightly differently. For example the finished size of an A3 correx sign is 297mm x 420mm (or 303mm x 426mm with your 3mm bleed) and the size of an A0 sign is 841mm x 1189mm (or 847mm x 1195mm to the bleed). No matter how big you’re finished correx board will be, you will need to ensure your colour mode is set to CMYK and you must ensure you use high resolution images only (at least 300dpi). Anything lower will affect the finished look of the correx printing.
When designing your board you will also have to ensure you flatten your fonts, as we may not have the specific ones you have used in your design. You can be as creative or as clean and simple as you’d like.
