Hi to all

I'm planning on building our GP a 2x3 cage with that being said what size coroplast will I need to purchase? I called a local sign shop to see what the cost was and the gentleman said $30.00 for a 4x8 sheet and I'm not sure if that is the size I need. Can anyone help with this question?
 
well you can cut a rectangle out of it with extra length for the sides.
 
The size of the coroplast will depend on how big the cubes will be. A 4x8 piece of coroplast is big and can fit into any number size cage. Determine the size of the cage first and that will determine the size of coro you'll need. Typically people make a 3" lip around the cage with the coro, so the coro would be scored around at the 3" mark. How many cubes do you have?
 
I don't have the cubes yet getting them tonight.
 
In general, the sides are 6" high. For a 2x3 cage, you'd need a 39"x53" coroplast.
