Bumpage. Coroplast is here. Somebody help a brutha out.

You need a bulk paper cutter, you know the ones with the blade on one side with the guide and all. Don't know the proper name for them but surely someone on here has one to lend.


Big assed powered ones like I used back in the day working at Kinkos would do the trick for sure. They would be alot of cutting with the manual one though. I'd think they would wear out a blade pretty quick too.

if it's a bunch, call a print shop and see if they can put them on the guillotine for you.

just brainstorming here-

Bandsaw could do multiple pretty quickly.

Paper recycling companies have MASSSIVE guillotines to cut paper from rolls.

Get Jay to put a Hobart meat slicer blade on his table saw.

i'd call the closest mom/pop print shop to you, kev.

i grew up in that industry, and i'm sure we'd have taken the job, especially since precision isn't really required. i will say that the paper cutters put quite a bit of pressure on the things, and might crunch 'em a little.

the sheets of coroplastic run 11 bucks for a 4x8 sheet......and you can cut a bunch of arrows out of it...real damn cheap. I cut a 6 inch strip off the 4 ft side..cut it into 4 1ft pieces and then cut an arrow tip......done. 6in strip divided by 8ft=16 strips x 4 per strip= 64 arrows for $11.


Where can I get this coroplast stuff locally?

I use Regal...mainly because I have and art dept account there. I think I paid about 11 bucks per 4x8 sheet.

you can call http://www.coroplast.com/ I do not know if they sell small amounts or to public...at one time they didn't

BTW...the stuff cuts like butter....I just use a straight edge and a blade......sometimes I dont even mess with the straight edge........ :rolleyes:
