Thanks for that longy I had seen him and have ordered some but those are all he has available

I dont mind buying full sheets but I dont seem to be able to find a supplier who may have smaller sheets in a variety of colours

I bought some from Germany, cheap enough, but the shipping is silly for small amounts.

Well I bought some from the ebay supplier
I've never seen traffolyte in the flesh so to speak before
the smaller bits he does in 3mm are what I imagined ( material that the large hotel key fobs are made of) hard and rigid
the larger bits are 1.5 mm thick and floppy
if i scratch the 3mm thickness with a stanley at 90 degrees the blade scratches... on the 1.5mm it glides..material is soft and plasticky

The seller says they both traffolite but the thinner is easier to bend

any ideas?

If you PM me your details I will post a 100 x 100 piece of the 1.4mm (Silver on Black) I have left over. You can then see if this is what you need.

Cheers
Rob

Hi Ian,

Are you still looking for a supplier of Traffolyte?
I currently use 3mm Traffolyte for the signage my company produces, but could also get hold of 1.5mm.
We order our material in in large sheets but do have the capability to cut these down to the A4 - A3 sizes that you have mentioned. We also stock various colours.

If this could be of any interest to you drop me a PM back or call me on my works number 0121 558 4411 and can discuss a little more in detail what you require.
