    I have to make a sign for my brother, and im trying to find some laminated plastic.

    I cant find any material anywhere, its either way too big, therefore exspensive, or not in the uk.

    Does anyone know where i can get some from, or even know the correct name for it?
    Cheers , simon

    What sort of sign do you have to make for him & what sort of size? Lots of different types of plastic/foam available. Bit more detail about what your looking for & someone will probably tell you what it's called.

    Think this stuff is called "traffolyte", look at UK Engraving Services laser engraving machines, service and repairs
    I've not used them so not a recommendation

    Traffolyte is a trade name in much the same way as Perspex I believe but does sound like the sort of thing you are after, try searching for engraving laminate, you should find what you are looking for from a range of different suppliers.

    If you can get the plain sheets then make your own? plumbers pvc glue or even some acetone will glue them together
    If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
