How Foam Board Printing Works

Our foam core boards are produced in sheets up to 4ft × 8ft in size. Since these large format prints cannot be bent or rolled, a special flatbed press is used during the printing process.

The boards are placed on a wide surface where graphics are rendered line-by-line at high-fidelity photo resolution. We print up to 1200 dpi (dots per inch), which allows us to capture the most intricate details, right down to a single strand of hair.

Because the ink is printed directly to the boards they eliminate the need to mount artwork or photographs and are a popular choice for museums, art shows, galleries, retail and media events.

Which Foam Board Is Right For You?

We offer a number of foam board stocks, each with its own set of features and properties:

Foam boards are designed for short term use, making them ideal for indoor presentations and seasonal signage.

Gator boards are made of a more dense and moisture resistant foamcore – they last longer and can even can tolerate limited outdoor usage (on clear days).

Sintra boards are composed of closed-cell PVC with a waterproof gloss finish that is resistant to dents and scratches – a durable option for outdoor use.

All boards are available in a variety of widths: We carry 3/16" and 1/2" in-house. 3/4" and 1" can be stocked for special orders as long as they meet the bulk order minimum of 12 (4’×8’) boards.
