Foam PVC Thickness

Morning fellow earthlings.
Can anyone tell me if you can get gloss foam PVC in 25mm or 30mm thickness and who would be able to supply in these thicknesses. Never needed thicker than 5mm before, but have a special project that needs these thicknesses.

:-? :D

I have just done a banner 5100 x 610mm at £150.00. Just plain lettering and 2 logos in a single colour.
Your under-priced in my books.
Let him go, plenty of fish in the sea.

QR codes help

I have a job to do that includes a QR code "pattern" I had a copy given to me but it was of a low resolution. :roll: I tried countless times to trace it in Corel but could only get a rough finish. I ended up drawing it from scratch which took a fair bit of time that I hadn't accounted for....
