Care

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 damaging the sign. Avoid dropping your foam board sign or placing any objects directly on top of it in storage. Keep it away from 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.

Q:
My design is really detailed and uses several colors. Will printing this cost more?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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!

Q:
What is your foam board made of?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
How thick is the foam board? Do you offer different thickness options?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
How durable is the foam board? Will the foam board signs bend?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
What sizes do you offer? What are the maximum and minimum sizes available?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
Do you offer double-sided foam board poster printing?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
Do you print directly onto the surface of the sign or simply put a printed vinyl overlay on top?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
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.
Q:
Will the printed part of my sign peel away?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
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.
Q:
Am I able to add a laminate to my foam board sign?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
Will my dry erase foam board sign leave a stain or shadow after the marker dries?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.
