Foam Core Printing Options
When you order a foam board print from us, you can choose single sided printing or double sided foam core printing for an additional 55% markup. This can be extremely useful when you want to have a double sided foam board print that is seen from both directions or is hanging from the ceiling. Another use of double sided foam core would be when you want to use this in a presentation and can flip the board around to use as a visual aid for other topics. When you use double sided printing you can save yourself the cost of purchasing a second foam core board.Foam Core Print Lamination
Want to extend the life and quality of your foam core board even more? Consider lamination on your print. This will increase the life expectancy of the board as well as add a higher quality look to the board. Matte lamination adds a 25% markup to the final cost, but if the longevity of your foam board print is of primary importance to you, we highly recommend making the investment.Heavy Duty Foam Core Material
Instead of the standard 3/16” foam core board material, you can upgrade to a 1/2” foam core board for an additional 50% of the base price. It’s very important to note that this markup is calculated on the base cost of the board, before the double sided printing and matte lamination is calculated – which saves you money. This extra 5/16s of an inch go a long, long way. The heavy duty foam core makes the board more durable, longer lasting, and less prone to bending and creasing than its thinner counterpart.

There are several different spellings of foam core – sometimes it’s spelled “foamcore” or “foamboard”. Any way you’d like to say or spell it, it’s all the same to us – foamcore signs, foamcore board, it’s all good! We’ll know what you are referring to.
Life span of your sign ultimately depends on how the foam core board is handled. Foam core is easily dented and damaged, so if you have plans to handle or transport it often, it is best suited for short-term use. We recommend gator board for long term applications where the media may travel from one event to the next. Acrylic prints are another long-lasting option for photo displays. However, displayed somewhere out of reach where it won’t be touched often, foam board can last years. For an example of such a display, see how a bookstore client of ours (pictured in the above gallery) hangs foam board prints from the ceiling as aisle signs.
