Fluted polypropylene, commonly known by the brand names of Coroplast® or Cor-X®, is the most widely used material for election signage and features a rigid interior, which allows for aluminum step stakes to be easily inserted. It is also easily printed on for a professional, finished look. The durability of fluted polypropylene can allow elected officials to reuse these signs in multiple election cycles.


Upcycling Political Signs

Even if these signs aren’t re-used for the next election, they can be re-used by laying inexpensive vinyl over the current print and add cut vinyl to create a new message such as; “Park Here” signs to route event guests to where you want them to go. Or, use them for a ‘happy birthday’ message. 

The durable material of these signs give great potential for upcycling and doing a fun DIY project. Here are a few ideas we found while searching for ideas.
