We offer both blank and custom printed foam board in any size, shape or quantity. If you want to order a blank board, then we have several options to choose from. Keep in mind we can ship to any state in the US and Canada. All sheets start as 4’x8′ in size and are cut down from there. Here are a few of the colors we have:
This comes with a matte black finish. Both the outer liner and the inside are black. Comes in 4×8 sheets but we also offer 2×3 foot, 40×60 or 30×40. Is also a popular size.
Also is sold in a dull matte finish and comes in 4×8 size. We can cut the sheets down to any size you choose. As noted below we can also print directly to this material.
Comes in a dull royal blue finish. If you are searching for different shades of blue, we can help we can custom print the blue, but it will be more expensive. Generally comes with a 3/16″ thick finish and 4×8 foot sheets.
Recently pink has become more famous for wedding signs and bachelorette party signs. If you are looking for one sheet, we recommend Michael’s. If you need pink sheets in bulk, we can help with that.
We think laminating is an excellent idea if you want to extend the life of your signs. Laminating posters will put a thin film over your print to protect it from scratching. That will add about 20% to the price of your print. If you want your posters laminated, we offer two different laminate finishes. The most popular laminated poster finish is glossy which adds a bright sheen. The other option for your sign is matte laminate which adds a dull finish and will reduce glare. Unfortunately, we will not laminate foam board printing that you had printed elsewhere.
Double Sided Foam Core Signs
We offer single sided as well as double-sided printing. This is a must-have for any application requiring the print to be seen from both directions or be hung from the ceiling. Another excellent use for double-sided printing would be utilizing it in a presentation; you can use the board around to use the backside for secondary information or a new topic. By taking advantage of double-sided prints you can save some money and the hassle of lugging around extra prints to your next trade show or presentation.
