    I have been known to clean up the streets and collect coro signs where I live... most people here get together to clean up our streets that become completely over run with coro signs and can be recovered to be used as MY xmas things. The bonus is it costs nothing and the surrounding areas will thank you when they see out out collecting. Plus it's illegal to post signs in the common ways owned by the county and state here, so your helping out the cleanup costs as well.

    One thing I have not found is coro local, nor have I found a reasonably priced source online. Have been looking for 3mm to start tackling Coro mini tree's and just start learning how to use it to add to my display. One question how do folks use the removed signs, since they usually have printed (color) on them, doesn't that show up when using in a display?

    You need clean coro if you are going to light from inside or back, but if you are going to poke lights THROUGH, it does not matter.

    I've found that you can get coro from any local sign places, and sometimes, if you explain what you are doing, they are willing to donate scraps, or sell at cost.

    Search homedepot.com for "corrugated plastic." Some unrelated stuff (like roofing panels) will show up in the results as well, but you should see a variety of the stuff you're looking for.

    Thank you, I think this will work!

    72 in. x 36 in. x 5/32 in. Twinwall Plastic Sheet
    Model # COR-3672
    Store SKU # 527147
    Internet/Catalog SKU 202771364

    So 4mm, but not that much larger than 3mm. Local not horrendous price, will give it a shot

    Thanks

    Problem with Home Depot is that they usually do not keep it in stock and the shipping on it is VERY expensive.

    I get it here for $13 for a 48x96x4mm Sheet White/Black/Green

    If you need some and tell me what size to cut it down to I would be happy to help out.

    Related question..... When you guys light 'through' the coro, do you leave it in the original 2 layer corrugated form or is it necessary to strip down to a single layer ?? i.e. remove the center corrugation from the top and bottom 'skin'....

    I ask to clarify what I thought I saw in a picture here... something that appeared to be a single layer of the coro.... Thanks!

    I’ve never heard of anyone ever stripping Coro down to a single layer. I don’t know if that’s even possible. Shine right on through as-is, it’s like lighting up ice.

    Can you clarify what you get with these stars? Do they come with LEDs? You might want to specify that on your web site since it mentions beam angles the assumption is that they do include LEDs - but if so what kind, voltage, etc. If not, you might want to show the insides with LEDs mounted as an example. I know you had a post about it here in the past but this is for the web site. Just a suggestion...
