  • Trade Supplies of Rigid Media

    Posted by Iain Pearson on March 7, 2023 at 9:23 am

    Morning all, it has been a while ๐Ÿ™‚
    hope everyone is keeping well?

    I am looking for recommendations for trade suppliers of all rigid materials, preferably ones that also supply a cutting service when required.
    Many thanks๐Ÿ‘

    I suppose it depends on where you are but I use Amari West London, they offer cutting at no cost.
    (although they might charge for lots of small cuts).

    Also used Antalis in the past, also good but never had anything cut with them.

    We use Pyramid in Birmingham, and Premier Paper in Wellingborough.

    Welcome back, Iain!
    Pyramid, Amari, Europoint, Perspex Distribution, Premier Paper, and Antalis, to name a few off the top of my head.
    Just depends on who you’ve got local.

    Ah Jeez, who let Iain back in ? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

    Amari all the time for me. Perspex distribution would be 2nd on my list, but haven’t used them for quite a long time now.

    from those recommended which supplier gives a proper warranty on “black” composite?
    Iain are you looking for a new composite supplier due to cutting services or are you having issues with your composite, like me? ๐Ÿคจ

      I think you’d have to speak to them to find out if there’s any warranty.

      re the black compo issue, I’ve never had a problem with it (touch wood!) I always use skybond with a .3mm skin.
