Why Choose LED Signs Over Fluorescent Lighting?

Fluorescent lighting is the standard that has been used for decades in signage around the world. While it remains the preferred choice over all other lighting options, many business owners are investing in LED lighting.

The future of lighting belongs to LED. Below are a few of the reasons to choose LED lights over fluorescent lights:

  • Low Energy Use: Only a fraction of the power needed for other technologies is required for LED lights.
  • Longer Life: LED lighting features long operational lifetime expectations. This means less frequent replacements.
  • Low-Voltage: A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination.
  • Sizing: LED’s diminutive size means they can be used in locations and ways that other lighting technologies can’t match.

Our article entitled “LED vs Fluorescent Lighting” elaborates on this topic.

Coroplast Signs Series – More Uses For Coroplast Signs

We specialize in all different types of signage projects, including those constructed of Coroplast. Contact us if you are looking for a cost-effective, lightweight, and strong product for your next signage project.



What Is Coroplast Made Of?

Coroplast has a similar appearance to cardboard. That’s why sometimes it is referred to as plastic cardboard. The product is made of  polypropylene or polypropylene copolymer plastics sheets. The sheets are extruded so that they resemble corrugated cardboard. In place of the wavy or curvy appearance of cardboard, however, Coroplast is formed with square channels known as flutes. The flutes can run horizontally or vertically depending on the customer’s needs.

The product can be used for a wide variety of purposes ranging from shipping boxes to model airplanes. However, it is probably best known for its use in the signage industry. In our previous post, we examined some potential sign uses for Coroplast. Listed below are a selection of signage uses for the product.

An important note to remember is that these signs are good for both indoor and outdoor applications. Although not suitable for long term outdoor signage, Coroplast is strong enough to withstand all but the worst weather. The product is also water resistant making it ideal even in damp, rainy or snowy weather.

Point of Purchase Displays

This image from Garden Centre Marketing is a great example of how Coroplast can be used in a point of purchase display. The sign is bright and colorful, immediately catching the eye. It can easily be used to create point of purchase display signage to attract attention to new products, promotional products, special features and more.

To the right is another point of purchase display. coroplast This one is a self-standing unit Pinned by Ondřej Bahula | Onto POS/POP displays and built to present Air Wick products in an eye-catching manner.
The various component parts of the display are constructed of Coroplast. These parts are assembled, usually on site, to create a sturdy display unit. Although lightweight in construction, Coroplast is strong and durable, making it an excellent choice for this type of unit.

Bring your idea to us at Westmount Signs and we will work with you to design and manufacture the signs that you require.


coroplastFloor Signs

Floor signs are a common way to attract interest in your business. Simple to design and build, they often have a fold-out flap at the back of the sign or are created for use with an A-Frame.
Check out this one that we created for KW Redeemer.  These signs are inexpensive and easy to produce, making them great for retail stores, hairdressers, restaurants, non-profits, and many other types of businesses and organizations.  The signs can easily be removed from the A-Frame and replaced with a new message when your requirements change.

_smcoroplast2Why Is Coroplast a Good Choice?

Although there are better choices for long term signs, Coroplast’s adaptability makes it an excellent choice for many short-term uses – both indoors and temporarily, outdoors. The product is cost-effective yet provides a strong visual presence. Its benefits include the fact that it is a lightweight product, making it easy to handle, yet effective in a variety of situations. Coroplast’s light quality can be attributed to its corrugated plastic structure. This innovative structure allows the product to blend both strength and durability with a lightweight construction. Read more about Coroplast’s benefits on our products and services page.

Indoor And Outdoor Use

This versatile product is suitable for both indoor and temporary outdoor use. Simple vinyl graphics can be applied to the product, allowing you to present your message to your customers. The product can be cut to a wide variety of sizes and used in a variety of ways. It can be placed in sign holders, attached to walls, hung from ceilings, attached to stakes, or attached to wired stands. Its rigid plastic construction makes it durable enough to be used outside – even in Canadian winters!

coroplast_lawn_signSome of Coroplast’s Advantages

Coroplast is tougher than cardboard, fibreboard, and card stock. It is also considerably lighter than solid plastic signs. Although often used as temporary signage, Coroplast is durable enough to last for up to two years in the outdoors, although due to its lightness, it can be susceptible to extremely high winds. The product can be cleaned easily, is stain resistant, and waterproof.

What Should My Coroplast Sign Look Like?

Coroplast can be cut to any sign size you require and comes in a variety of colours. This allows you to create a simple design with a simple message or let your creative juices flow with something more intricate. Signs can be used to display your business name, advertise a special, announce an upcoming event, provide directions, direct business traffic, provide temporary information, display restaurant specials, and so much more.

What Should You Look For In a Supplier?

When it comes to looking for a supplier for any business product, there are some critical factors that should be present. Here we examine some of the following factors:

  • Reliability
  • Quality
  • Value
  • A Good Reputation
  • Strong Customer Service
  • Teamwork Approach

Will they get the job done on time and as requested? It is one thing for a supplier to make a commitment to do what is requested, but another to get it done as requested and on schedule. Check to determine whether they have a record for reliability.

Do They Provide Top Quality at a Reasonable Price?

A great price is not so great if it is followed up with shoddy workmanship and poor quality. Can the supplier provide both a great price and a quality product? Ask to review their work. Can you visit one of their customers? Does their work meet the standards you require?

“From the initial meeting to the design of my signs to the final completion it was one of the best experiences I have ever had dealing with a company in my 18 years in business. If you need a company to trust that has your best interest in mind at all times call Simon and I promise you will not be disappointed.”

How To Identify Potential Suppliers

Finding a reputable and trustworthy supplier can be daunting.

  • Search the internet – for example, search “business signs Waterloo
  • Talk to your existing business partners – do your other suppliers have a recommendation?
  • Chamber of Commerce Directories – use local chamber of commerce directories for local suppliers
  • Trade associations – joining trade associations puts you in touch with potential suppliers
  • Social Media – such as Facebook, Twitter to check who is currently active

Once you have identified a list of potential suppliers in your area, choose those that you believe are most likely to meet your specific requirements. Limit the possibilities to two and ideally no more than three potential suppliers. Visit each one to get a better understanding of their facilities and their philosophy of business.
