  • Vinyl supplier, recommendations for a new source please?

    Posted by John Lacey on September 8, 2020 at 9:11 am

    Hi all, i was wondering if anybody had a suggestion for a more cost effective (cheaper) vinyl supplier. I have been using Hexis for the last 20 years without shopping around. I noticed today on another suppliers site (MDP Sign Supplies)that the Polymeric and Monomeric vinyl is considerably cheaper than Hexis, even the web price straight off the page is about 25% less without asking for a trade discount! The postage is also better. Currently paying £3.04 +VAT a metre for Polymeric (postage 9.95+vat)…. Hexis prices have been creeping up for years, i should of done something before i know!

    We’ve recently started using Spandex, not used them for years.

    They stock a number of manufacturers, which provides options. They’ve been competitive on price too. Service has been good so far.

    Got some of their digital polymeric on order see how that is.
