What Are Foam Board Signs?

Foam board, also known as “foamcore” signs, is a marriage between portable and professional signages. You won’t have any problems carrying them around to your next presentation venue or displaying them in multiple store locations. They work as great visual aids for big meetings, as signages to inform customers of specials, or for any other indoor signage application.

As foam board consists of a paper face on either side, we strongly recommend using it only indoors. Careful handling when moving, displaying and storing of foam board signs will help prevent tearing or other damage to the sign. Avoid dropping or placing any objects directly on top of foam board signs when storing. Avoid contact with water or moisture. Clean gently using a dry cloth. Our optional dry erase laminate will help protect your foamboard sign and is easy to clean. Simply wipe the glossy surface with a non-abrasive cloth. Use a small amount of citrus based cleaner or isopropyl alcohol when needed.

Product Specs

What is your foam board made of?

Our foam board signs are made of standard, paper-faced memory foam board with a rigid foam center. The solid foam center gives it durability and makes it a great indoor signage option, and the paper-faced sides allow for clarity in printing.

How thick is the foam board? Do you offer different thickness options?

Our foam board signs are 3⁄16" (about 0.2”) thick. We currently do not offer other thicknesses on this page, but we do offer additional types and thicknesses. Please call us or contact us about these other choices.

How durable is the foam board? Will the foam board signs bend?

Foam board signs will have some pliability regardless of size. Though bigger signs tend to be more bendable, it is important to treat them with care to prevent damage regardless of size. If you are looking for something more durable and long-lasting, consider using our rigid plastic signs instead.

What sizes do you offer? What are the maximum and minimum sizes available?

We print using large format industrial size printers, so your sign cannot be any smaller than 4” x 4”. Any sign smaller than 4”x 4 risks reduced clarity of the printed design. The maximum size of any custom foam board sign is 94” x 46”.

We also offer standard sizes including 12" x 12", 24" x 12", 36" x 18", 4' x 2', and 6' x 3'. You can also order a custom sign in any size you want between our smallest and biggest permissible dimensions.

My design is really detailed and uses several colors. Will printing this cost more?

Whether you order a custom foam board sign or any other sign from us, we will print them in full color. Regardless of how simple or complex the design portion of your sign is, it won’t impact the cost of your sign. What dictates your sign cost is the size, quantity, type, and any shipping and/or taxes that may be applicable.

We will also design your sign for free if needed which means you can save on designer fees, too!

Do you offer double-sided foam board poster printing?

Yes, we offer double-sided foam board signs. Select this option while designing your sign under the “Printed Sides” dropdown menu. To create a different design for the back of your foam board sign, click on the “Back Side” button to switch between the front and back side of your sign.

Do you print directly onto the surface of the sign or simply put a printed vinyl overlay on top?

The paper-faced exteriors of the foam board sign combined with our UV resistant ink allows us to print directly onto the foam board rather than using some kind of printed vinyl overlay. This ability to print directly onto the sign produces high quality, crisp and vibrant signs regardless of the design.

Will the printed part of my sign peel away?

The printed portion of your sign will not peel away. In fact, even if you intentionally scratch your sign there should be no peeling of the printed portion of the sign.

Am I able to add a laminate to my foam board sign?

Yes! You are able to add a dry erase laminate to your foam board sign, allowing you to write on the sign with dry erase markers. This laminate will also give your sign a vibrant, glossy finish and will help protect it against fading, scratches, graffiti, and other elements. In addition to being completely customizable with any design you desire on the printed areas, dry erase enhances the usability of your sign. By selecting "Dry Erase Laminate" option from the coating drop-down at the top of this page, you can turn any foam board sign into a custom dry erase board.

Will my dry erase foam board sign leave a stain or shadow after the marker dries?

The dry erase laminate we use is designed to be high quality and allow you to write clearly, and wipe away clean—even after the marker has been left for days. Dry erase markers may stain if left on the dry erase surface for over extended periods or when exposed for long periods in the sun.

In the rare case that a stain is left on your dry erase foamboard sign, we suggest removing the stain with a non-abrasive cloth and a small amount of isopropyl alcohol or a small amount of hand sanitizer to wipe away tough stains. Citrus based cleaners also work well.

Why does shipping cost so much if you offer free shipping?

We offer free shipping on all orders over $99 unless the order requires freight shipping or contains a rigid material over 36 inches in either direction. Due to simple shipping rules, rigid signs that are over certain dimensions require to be shipped via freight shipping. This causes the shipping expense to be much more than usual.

Can I add grommets or holes to these signs?

While it’s possible to add grommets in your foam board sign, we generally do not recommend it. You can add 3M Command ™ Strips, Velcro, or an easel back to your order instead so you can display your foam board. If you still want to use grommets in your foam board sign, please contact us before ordering so we can help you customize your sign.

Do you offer color matching? 

Yes. Please contact us if you are interested in color matching for your custom foam board sign.

What is the lifespan of your foam board signs?

Foam boards are most often used for one-time events. Despite this, assuming that they are cared for and used appropriately they can last two years or more. Thus, your foam board signs don’t need to be purchased regularly but rather used and stored correctly.

How do foamboard, foam board, foamcore, foam core, and foam signs differ?

Actually, they don't. Foamboard and foamcore are misspellings of the word "foam board" and the brand name Fome-Core, respectively.

Foam board and Fome-Cor are synonymous. All these terms can be used to describe a foam sign in which your design or logo is printed directly onto the surface of the foam material. As noted above, our foam board signs are made with a foam center and paper-faced exterior for clear printing. There may be a minor difference between the brand and actual material as some sign shops source from the manufacturers or wholesalers. Foam boards are normally 3⁄16" thick, but custom thicknesses can be ordered by contacting us. Regardless of which name or term you might use we'll know that you are ordering a foam sign, so don’t worry!


Can I use foam board signs outdoors?

Foam board signs are intended for interior use only. Using them outside exposes them to the elements that can cause damage. Whether it’s a little precipitation or high winds, foam board signs aren’t designed to be used outdoors.

What are the typical uses of foam board?

Foam boards signs are designed to be used inside only. Indoor uses for foam board signs include one-time business and school presentations, point of purchase displays in retail environments, event signage, exhibits at museums and other locations, trade show signage and more.

Installation & Care

How do I install or hang my foam board sign?

How you install or post your foam board sign largely depends on the setting and usage. Most foam boards can be propped up on easels, framed, or placed on a surface using an adhesive. You can also install your foam board signage using adhesive, tape, rope, string, zip ties, etc.

Do you offer any accessories I can use to display my foam boards?

Yes, you can add accessories that display your foam board in your order. Under “Accessories” choose from Velcro, 3M Command™ strips, or an easel back.

How do I store my foam board signs?

You should store your custom foam board signs in a cool and dry place. You should also avoid setting anything heavy on them so that they won’t bend or crease. Unlike vinyl banners, bends and creases will be permanent on your foam board sign wherever they occur.

How do I clean my foam board signs?

A dry non-abrasive cloth or rag is perfect for regular light cleaning of your foam board sign. When coated with our dry erase laminate, you can clean your foam board sign by wiping the sign lightly with a citrus-based cleaner or with dry erase cleaner.
