Correx Boards Printing Pretoria
The term corri board comes from the word corrugated boards and is also known as correx or real-estate agent boards. These boards are available in different widths, which vary between 2mm and 5mm, where the 3mm is the most popular option.
The price of a printed corri board depends on the following factors:
- The quantity of boards ordered.
- The size of the board.
- The amount of colours printed.
- The chosen width of the board.
Screen printing vs. Digital printing
On the lower quantities we make use of the digital printing process and on the larger quantities (40 or more on A2 size) we use the screen printing process. The digital printing process has the advantage of the order being complete within 2 to 3 working days and the full colour print is of a higher quality and clarity compared to screen printing. The price of digitally printed corri boards remains the same whether it’s printed in one colour or full colour.
The disadvantage of digital printing onto correx boards is that it is more expensive, as the process uses costly material and is labour intensive. We print digitally onto vinyl and then apply that vinyl onto the corri board.
Screen printing is costly on low quantities though. The reason is that for every individual colour in the artwork a silkscreen and a positive has to be prepared. This does however result in larger quantities being much more affordable as the setup cost gets divided among the quantities in question. The actual printing per unit is not that costly. The more colours are involved to more the setup and printing will cost.
Corri or correx boards are weather resistant for approximately 1 year and there after they tend to look untidy. Corri boards are available in three colours, namely white, black and yellow. If you want any other colour for the background, this will then have to physically be screen printed onto the corri board itself, and this will then be counted as another colour. Approximately 90% of the orders placed with us for corri boards are on white and the reason for this is that it’s less expensive.
