What is Foam Board?
Foam board, also known as Foam core, Foamcore board, and Paper-faced foam, is a lightweight and attractive poster and sign material. Sometimes confused with Gator board, which has a face made from wood-fiber veneer, Foam board is straightforward and inexpensive, making it extremely versatile for all sorts of projects, signs, and displays.
Common purposes our clients order custom printed Foam boards are:
• To Advertise Sales
• Aisle Markers
• Menu Boards
• Photo Galleries
• Event Advertisements
• Trade Shows & Conventions
• Portable Signage
• Science Fair and Research Projects
Our standard Foam board size is 22″ x 28″ (This is the foam board size you will generally find in the aisle of your neighborhood craft supplier or supermarket) and the thickness generally ranges between 5mm to 10mm (3/16″ to 1/2″) in black or white core for an attractive edge effectFor bigger projects, our large Foam board size is 36″ x 48” and our oversized Foam boards can be as large as 8′ x 4′ – Only specialized printers (like us!) will have Foam boards this size in stock; if you require a Foam board of this size, it may need to be special-ordered. However, massive Foam board projects can be assembled from several smaller pieces of Foam board, which will make the product much easier to print and transport.
For signs that require a ridged board we offer Gator Board in black or white core all can be cut to the customs size you may require. *Routing by hand is available for custom projects.*
