Sign shops, yes.

Also - if you don't mind printed stuff, try the beer/soda distributors - they often make "weatherproof signs" that are coroplast. Mini-marts/convenience stores/gas stations often have them (from the soda distributors) that they have to rotate in/out as sales happen or new products get advertised.

Try them too.
