Cavy Cages – A Question About Coroplast

The following is a cavy cages question for BlueStoneCommerce which was received on our BlueStoneCommerce YouTube Channel:

“I was going to order coroplast on the internet, but how big is one sheet of coroplast?” – mal152010

Just like standard building materials (e.g. plywood, drywall, panelling, etc.), Coroplast is sold in 4-ft x 8-ft sheets.
We like to use the 4mm thickness for building cavy cages (guinea pig cages)

Over the years, many people have reported having trouble finding Coroplast for their cavy cages.
A few have managed to find it in hardware stores like Home Depot. However, I have never seen it in any hardware store in our area.

We have found that the most reliable place to get Coroplast is to contact a local sign shop. In fact, contact several because prices vary greatly. And be sure to tell them that it’s for a guinea pig cage. They may just give you a better price it they know that you’re not a competitor.

Also, figure out the exact dimensions of the piece you will need ahead of time. Some shops will cut it for you for little or no cost. Even better – some shops will charge you only for the size you get – not for the entire 4×8 sheet.
