Foamboard Signs

Temporary signage foamboard signs are what you need for your event.

  1. Lightweight and portable: Foamboard signs are lightweight, making them easy to transport and install. They are suitable for temporary displays or events where mobility is required.
  2. Cost-effective: Foamboard is an inexpensive material, making it a cost-effective choice for signage needs, especially for short-term or temporary use.
  3. Customizable: Inkjet printing technology allows for high-quality, full-color printing on foamboard signs. This enables businesses and individuals to create customized signs with vibrant graphics, logos, and text to match their branding or promotional needs.
  4. Versatility: Foamboard signs can be easily cut into various shapes and sizes, allowing for creative design options. They can be used for indoor applications like point-of-purchase displays, trade shows, presentations, and exhibitions.
  5. Easy to display: Foamboard signs can be mounted on walls, easels, or placed on tabletops with the help of adhesive tapes, hooks, or stands. They are user-friendly and require minimal installation effort.
  6. Durable: While foamboard signs are not as durable as materials like metal or acrylic, they can withstand moderate handling and are suitable for indoor use. Proper care and protection from moisture can extend their lifespan.
  7. Informational and promotional purposes: Foamboard signs are commonly used for informational purposes, such as directions, announcements, or safety instructions. They are also effective for promotional activities, product launches, or advertising campaigns.

It’s worth noting that foamboard signs may not be suitable for long-term outdoor use or in environments with high humidity or moisture, as the material is not weather-resistant. However, for short-term or indoor applications, inkjet printed foamboard signs offer a cost-effective and visually appealing signage solution.

What is Foamboard?

Foamboard or Foam core board is a strong and lightweight material which consists of a polystyrene clad center layer sandwiched between two outer layers of white clay-coated, matte paper. We offer foamboard printing which is the same as foam core printing ranging between 4”x4” and 48”x96” in size. Foamboard signs are rigid allowing you to stand them up or place them on easels and portable enough to set up and take down in seconds.

Places where you would most likely see foam core signs are at tradeshows, board room presentations, temporary lobby signage and venue special events.

In comparison to other substrates, foamboard or foam core is very budget friendly since it is generally a one-time-use material.
