I'm after some large reflector boards 6x3ft plus for my small studio. Ideally I'll keep one side white with the other side painted matt black.
Is there anything suitable out there (polyboard, foamcore etc) which is reasonably cheap, fairly light and readily available where can I find it in the UK?

sheets of polystyrene boards you get in builder's merchants - usually either 1" or 2" thick.
I made some lovely reflectors that fold up to the size of A4.
Laminated sheets of A4 paper and joined using tape
You could even use card from craft shops in various colours, silver/gold, black etc.
Correx (like corrugated cardboard but plastic) from sign writing suppliers or the likes of Amari plastics. About £5 / £6 for an 8 x 4 sheet 4mm thick.
PERFECT! Found 8x4 ft polyboards at B&Q. Widths vary from 25, 50, 75 & 100mm with prices ranging from £5.28 - £20.98 per board.
Thanks for the help guys!
I've just received 4 x pieces of 8' x 4' polyboard but cannot for the life of me find any suitable stands - can anyone help?
Having gone on location to places that you really don't want to carry anything heavy to, I have bought old white sheets at a charity store, and made frames out of PVC pipe. The fabric can be stited on or held with A clamps for easy break down. This worked on Volvo ads as well as editorial fashion where the budgets are too low for assistants.
