Foam board, also known as Foamex board, is a great material for use both in and outdoor applications and is available in a range of different thicknesses. If you’re looking for a cost-effective solution for signs or full-colour printing, foam board is the perfect choice as it has a smooth surface and is weatherproof, so it continues to look great for years to come, even when exposed to wind, rain and sunshine. Foam-board printing has taken off over the last few years as an affordable alternative to the standard cardboard or canvas printing methods. At Cut My Plastic, we offer foam board in a choice of 3mm, 5mm or 10mm sheets and can cut it to any size, delivering a customised product to suit your needs.
Please note, before considering cutting your Foamex print yourself, you cannot cut it due to the printing techniques. If you require it cut to your specifications, please contact us prior to ordering.
High-quality signage solutions
The most popular use for printed foam board is for signs, as it has the ideal smooth surface for producing clear graphics and vibrant colours when combined with state-of-the-art printing technology. The option to have either matte, gloss or dry-wipe laminate finishes also provides excellent versatility and extra protection to your sign. It can be used both for indoor uses, such as branding solutions, noticeboards or digitally-printed artwork as decoration, as well as for outdoor signs such as estate agent signs, exhibition display boards and A board pavement signs.
Custom printed foam board signs are great for brightening up a reception or welcome area with branded prints, to create attention-grabbing health and safety signs that will remain visible at all times, or for retail signs to promote new products or create a hanging sign to direct customers to a point of sale display. It’s a brilliant solution for university or college displays as temporary signage for freshers fairs or open days, and because of the lightweight properties it doesn’t pose a safety risk if it happens to fall down or gets knocked by passers-by.
What are the benefits of printed foam board?
Foam board is a lightweight material that is easy to install and can be drilled to a wall, fencing or hung from the ceiling to draw attention without taking up wall space. It comes in a range of thicknesses and sizes, so you can be as creative as you want to be, from small signs for easel displays to large hanging signs that are eye-catching and turn visitors into customers. Foam board provides the best of both worlds – it delivers a professional look that’s also affordable and easy to install.
The fade-resistant printing ensures a great looking product that will last for years, whatever you use it for – from decorating an office or residential space, directing visitors to a location or welcoming customers to your premises. Because it’s so lightweight, installing foam board is incredibly easy – it can be drilled with ease to be installed with display hooks or even attached with double-sided tape or Velcro for a temporary solution. If you need any drill holes put in place in advance, let us know when you place your order and we can pre-drill the holes to make installation even faster.
