    Sunny and Starbucks

    Hello! I'm a new member here and my name is Sunny. At the moment I've got one little Guinea Pig, Starbucks, but I'm planning to get him a friend soon. I'm looking around so that I can adopt rather than buy from a pet store, as I see suggested all around the site.
    I am also in the process of building a C&C cage for my little piggy. I'm looking for a place to get my coroplast but I've already gotten my grids and set them up. It's 3x4 with a small upper level. I've lain down some towels and let Starbucks run around for a while, he seems to really enjoy the space!
    If anybody has any suggestions on where I could get my coroplast I'd really appreciate it! I live in South Jersey, if it's any help.

    He's very cute! You can get Coroplast at sign shops. If you can't seem to find any, you can also use shower curtains.

    Since you are new to the forum, my best suggestion is that you spend some time with your new best friend, the Search function. It's the brown box on the upper right with the magnifying glass. There is a wealth of information in previous posts (dating back to 2005) and you will find most of your questions answered there.

    First of all, be aware that Coroplast is a trade name and not everyone knows what it is. The "generic" name is corrugated plastic.........because it is constructed just like corrugated cardboard.

    South Jersey is a pretty big locale! The all-time best place to buy coroplast is from a Sabic Polymershapes store. I'll post the link to their store locator, but it appears to me that the closest one would be in Trevose, PA. Sabic sells 4'x8' 4mm sheets in a range of colors for about $12. They will cut it to size for you, but may not score it. Might be worth it to do a road trip.
    SABIC Polymershapes, Branch Locator

    Sign shops are usually the most expensive, even though you don't want anything printed on the coroplast. Since it is nearly election time, make friends at the local headquarters. Perhaps you can stuff envelopes or something in exchange for their leftovers.

    Another option is Home Depot......maybe. They sell something that they call a Twinwall Plastic Sheet, 72"x36" white, 5/32 in. (just about 4mm). It is advertised on their website for $10.50/sheet which makes it a bit more expensive than Coroplast, but still affordable. It is Model #COR-3672, SKU #527147. Be aware that most store personnel won't know what it is or where it is kept in the store. Go on their website, do a search, and print out the information.

    Happy Hunting!

    Welcome and congrats on your new boy - he's too cute!!

    for the coro, someone recently suggested you could check out Realtor offices, since they often use coro for their signs. also, the signs for elections/voting are often made from coro - maybe you could get some used ones either for cheap or free! you may have to cut and tape them, but that works okay too!

    Welcome to the forum. You piggy is so cute. I love his colors. You can buy coroplast from this site: The C&C Cages for Guinea Pigs Store.

    Good luck with you Starbucks. Oh btw I love his name. Wish you the best of luck.
