Hey I never thought of that clothes pin idea! Thanks :) Well, our sign guy messed up and gave us 2.5X4 feet coroplast, and I was really looking forward to making the cage the way I want to. And, it isn't quite what I expected. So, we are going to save it and use it for making things :) :love:

I don't know where you live Future Mom, but, I went to the yellow pages and found the sign company I got my coroplast from. I also made sure to tell them it was for a guinea pig cage in case, as cavy cages said, they thought I was going to make my own sign instead of paying them to make one for me. BTW I use cavy cages directions for my cage and then made my fine tuning after it was completed. You can't go wrong.

My dad is a contractor too and when I asked him he had never heard of it. But one of his old friends owns a sign shop down the street and sells it.

Well, I didn't really like the coroplast.. but we have a sturdier, flexible, CLEAR version of it! It's basically the same, just stronger and clear. So I will definately be making some things (hidey-houses and stuff) out of the old coroplast.. my dad is going to find out the name of the stuff we have so I can let you know, if interested. I just didn't like the flimsy-ness of the coroplast we had gotten. Getting excited! :D I can't do my strawberry theme this way, but I'll figure something out ;)
