Yes its a high strength tape suitable for correx, we use it to bond estate agent panels together, its about 19mm wide by about 1mm thick and we get a 20m roll from GPM in Leicester.

Hope the instructions for making the correx hinges made a little sense!!

Does anyone know if you can get a corner rounder machine (for radius corners on foamboard/correx/magnetic etc) from anyone other than Jag Sign Supplies.

My customer is after a machine that can also punch a hole if there is one on the market.

We have been asked to quote for some signs that need to be attached to the front of trestle tables.

Does anybody have any ideas or know of any suppliers who sell fixings that would be suitable, the signs need to be approx 2.5 to 3 feet long.

Thanks for any help
