Are you interested in adding visual signage to your store, office, gallery, or event booth? Our prints on foam core and gatorboard make it easy to place durable displays and artwork. These signs are substantially thicker than your average poster yet still lightweight and transportable enough to set up and take down in seconds.
About Foam Core Material
Stand your new rigid Foam Core on an easel for presentations or as signs, posters, etc. This 3/16" thick whiteboard is made of relatively delicate material and is best for one-time use; it can last longer with proper care. This product is not waterproof. Photographers and artists often pair foam core with archival framing methods.
About The Gator Board Material
Our 3/16" White Gator Board signs print with UV-cured inks. They are stronger and more durable than foam core and just as lightweight. Gator Board Signs are suitable for both interior and exterior usage. Some common uses are exhibits, POP displays, temporary retail signage, presentations, trade show signage, restaurant signage or menus, and much more.
Art Specifications for Signs
Art files should submit in CMYK color mode, 300 DPI, and as a PDF or JPG format. Please provide a one-inch" bleed area. For instance, a 12" x 18" print requires a 13" x 19" file.
If your file is over 50MB, you will probably need to email us a Dropbox or Google Drive link rather than uploading the art while ordering.
Custom Sign Sizes Welcome
If you are looking for a size not available on this page, please get in touch with us for a custom quote. We can offer a wide variety of sizes up to 46" on each side.
Shipping Custom Prints on Foam Core and Gator Boards
Prints on foam core and gator board typically ship via UPS Ground in two to three days.
Is This The Same as Mounting?
No, mounting requires you to print a poster and then use adhesive or lamination to adhere that print to the board. We print directly onto the white foam board or gator board.
Foam Core and Gator Board FAQ
Can I print on both sides of my sign?
Yes, we can print on one or two sides of your board.
Can I write on my foam board signs?
Sure – for the best results, we recommend using a permanent marker.
Can I purchase circular foam signs or custom shapes?
Not at this time. We offer various sizes for foam core and gatorboard signs, but all are rectangular.
Can I use foam board signs outside?
We don’t recommend posting these boards outdoors. The lightweight signs are not water or wind-resistant. Consider our yard signs or banners if you’re looking for an outdoor option.
Can you add grommets to these signs?
No, not right now.
How soon can I receive my foam and gator boards? What are the shipping methods available?
At checkout, select a UPS option. If you choose a USPS method, we will default back to UPS.
