In the process of making lemonade, you have to go through some lemons. Case in point: This limited supply of BRAND NEW, woven polyethylene billboard signs, available in various sizes. An advertiser swapped their old large-format printers for new ones, and had to complete test after test to make sure the new equipment worked properly. Of course, that demands miles of polyethylene material to print on, none of which can be used as actual billboards, since the prints are not actual advertisements. That means we have literally tons of material available! Now you can repurpose these reclaimed signs as a tarp, drop cloth, sunshade, privacy sheet, weed barrier, boat or RV cover, and much more! Reclaimed, Repurposed and 100% Recyclable; you can't beat that! Read below for more information.
It is a woven polyethylene (LDPE) fabric coated with a UV-resistant layer to minimize fading. The weave allows it to flex in windy conditions and reduces fraying or tearing. It is approximately 6 mil thick (6/1000"), slightly thicker than traditional tarps.
Most of our inventory is unmarked, so we are unsure of exact sizes; however, the most common sizes of billboards are 12’x24’, 12'x40', 10'x30', 10'x36' & 14'x48'. Since we do not know the exact sizes, they are sold by weight at $2.49/lb; the heavier the piece of material, the larger it is. One pound of weight equals approximately 30 square feet. They are compactly folded for easy transportation.
It is 100% waterproof and will not promote mold or mildew.
Some have pockets/sleeves along all four sides, but most do not. You can run pipe, cable or rope through the pockets for even distribution. They do not have grommets, but you can add them with a kit from a hardware store. You can also use Grip-Clips, staples, or other industrial clamps.
There is a sample advertisement or print on one side, but the other side is a solid, light grey color. We recommend keeping the advertisement side down, so only the backside is showing. The print is waterproof, and will not bleed.
These reclaimed billboard signs are BRAND NEW and were NEVER INSTALLED! We guarantee they are in perfect condition without holes or tears. We will gladly replace them if you find a hole.
