Foam board printing

Print on foam board

Foam board printing or Foamex printing has taken off over the last few years as this light and durable material proved to be a great alternative to standard canvas or cardboard printing. Professionals in graphics industries have been using it for some time now, but recently the marketing and corporate world also started to take advantage of affordable and large foam board prints.

Foam board is ideal for signage, posters and advertising boards for your shop, office or exhibition stand. Printed Foamex produces great colours and clear graphics as it is HD digitally printed with the state-of-the-art printing technology.

Foam Board Printing - Customisation

When you print on foam board with Pixartprinting, you are in control of the final product thanks to a wide range of customisation options. You can choose from three thicknesses (3 mm, 5 mm or 10 mm), a vast range of sizes and you can also enter your own dimensions by choosing the ‘Custom Format’. You can print on the front only, have the same back and front or a different back and front. There is also the choice of a rectangular board or you can opt for your own custom shape. You can also add scratch-resistant varnish for added protection.

Metal hangers are available to fix your panels to the wall but the foam board prints can also be supplied without them.

Foam Board Materials

The specific material used when you print on foam board with Pixartprinting is Foamex PVC Eurolight. This is a durable plastic made of semi-expanded PVC with a compact white surface and it is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. It is therefore ideal for shop signs, advertising boards or display spaces. It is available in three different thicknesses (3 mm, 5 mm or 10 mm) and the minimum printable size varies according to the thickness. The maximum size of the panel is 190 cm x 290 cm so if you need a larger size for your print on foam board, your design will be printed on multiple panels.

Why choose foam board printing?

Foam board printing is an excellent choice for indoor signage and advertising boards. If you have a retail space or hospitality venue, you can use Foamex signs to draw attention to certain products or promote offers and special events. While if you are holding an event or exhibition, they can be used as signage to direct visitors. At trade fairs, they can be used to decorate your stand and make sure you get noticed! This does not only apply to corporate events but also weddings and other celebrations, where you can provide need-to-know information at the door to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
