I found a place just down the street that sells coroplast at a decent price (Graphic Images). I had to buy a whole sheet, which is a bit of a drag since I only need at most four square feet. I'm sure I will either use the extra or find someone who needs it.
On Monday, I spoke to the owner and agreed to buy a whole sheet. I told him I'd be by on Tuesday morning on the way to work to pick it up. I'd be putting it in my car. A whole sheet? Impossible. I told him it would fit, that I'd roll it it up. He proceeded to tell me at least three times that I could not roll coroplast. I told him saw how to roll coroplast online. I'd be fine.
So I go in on Tuesday morning to pick it up. I was thrilled that they had a large front office, because it had been raining and I didn't want to attempt to roll it outside. Looked like I could roll it in the office. At which point the secretary tells me, more than once, that I cannot possibly roll coroplast. Sure I can.
I had to help her haul it from the back room, because it's bulky and we put it flat on the floor. I was a bit nervous at that point, because I've never actually rolled coroplast before. I really didn't want to crimp it. But I had read the instructions. How bad could it be?
Pretty easy. The hardest part was getting the packing tape dispenser to work while holding the coroplast in place. I put way more tape on it than was necessary; I was so afraid the thing would spring open before I left the building. I packed it in the car with no problems and headed to work. At home, at the end of the day, I discovered that leaving it rolled up all day resulted in warped coroplast. It has straightened quite a bit in the last day, so it should be in good shape when I cut it.
The secretary was pretty impressed. She said it was too bad that I was in so early, because the owner would have liked to have seen that. It was a good thing I brought my camera! I've emailed him the proof. See? You can roll coroplast!
