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.

For temporary displays and exhibits basic Foam Boards are viable and cost effective, though beyond 2 years the white will begin to fade. For long term projects, we recommend Gator Board prints.

Foam boards can easily be cut into many shapes, and even assembled into larger structures to provide a printed backdrop for concerts, seminars and theater productions.

Combining a print with foamcore easels or a media wall base provides a sturdy, standalone structure which is easy to set up and break down for media events.

Architectural Models

The light yet sturdy composition of foam boards makes them an excellent material for building scale models. We offer blank foam boards cut to custom specifications for all sorts of architectural and engineering projects.

Simply send us your vector art and we will produce all the pieces of your model, ready to assemble.
