• ACM Suppliers

    Any recommendations for cheap ACM suppliers.

    I’ve used Amari, Perspex and Rightons in the past.

    Any hidden gems that can supply Hoarding grade?

    Not bothered on skin just needs to be cheap.

    Cheers

    Amari do a .15 skin matt/mill hoarding board, it’s horrible sh#t but that’s what cheap hoarding is in my view! I don’t know the current price but it was much cheaper than the .3 skin I’d ordered.

    Europoint, & Pyramid both supply ACM. Depends who you’ve got locally.

    I think Premier Paper do too, there’s also Antalis.

    As David says, it depends who you have local and if their happy to do you a good deal, here in the northwest the trade is really spoiled for choice and all suppliers delivering on their own transport and offering a cutting service so it’s super competitive already. Ask for a price on a pallet to make it worth their while dropping the price.

    i phoned around earlier this year after noticing the price of PVC sheets going up and up and hoarding is probably the closest to the price you will get for budget signs. even the fluted board is on the up but that’s very short term life.
    my big problem is always cutting down composite sheets if i dont get the supplier to do it for me.
