Corrugated plastic sheeting is a durable plastic sheeting used to make signs and project displays. The plastic is manufactured much like corrugated cardboard, which is composed of a ripped or wave layer of material in between two smooth sheets. This results in a lightweight material. The smooth surface is ideal for affixing labels or vinyl for sign making or even can be cut halfway, making it easy to bend for packaging and display boards.

Mark a line at the measurement you want to cut the plastic with a permanent marker. Use a straight edge to make a precise even line.

Place the corrugated plastic sheet onto a piece of thick cardboard.

Hold the sheet in place with one hand. Turn the band saw on and cut along the line you marked.

Place the corrugated plastic on a flat surface.

Mark the measurement you want to cut the plastic with a permanent marker and straight edge.

Use firm even pressure to cut through the plastic at the line you marked. Cut the plastic through only the top smooth layer to bend the corrugated sheet.
