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.

Why does shipping cost so much if you offer free shipping?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

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?
Asked 2 years ago by 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? 
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
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?
Asked 2 years ago by 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?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

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?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

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?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs
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.
How do I install or hang my foam board sign?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

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?
Asked 2 years ago by Signs

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?
Asked 2 years ago by 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.
