Foam core printing

Foamcore - Printed foam board signs

Foamcore boards are a fantastic choice for large format quality digital prints due to their light weight, rigidity and great printing quality. The different Foamcore signs that Pixartprinting has to offer have different characteristics that lend themselves to various uses, so whether you are looking for a medium for your outdoor advertising or interior decoration, there is a range of options to suit your needs and budget.

Custom foam board printing - Materials

Our Foamcore boards are 10mm Foamcore panels with Forex®-style PVC surfaces and an expanded interior. Foamcore is typically used in art exhibitions, outdoor advertising or home and office decoration and signage, mainly for large applications as they have an excellent printing output, are extremely light and easily wall mounted.

Smart-X® is a new material, similar to Foamcore but lighter and more solid. It is ideal for direct digital printing and a popular choice for life-size cut outs or large wall prints, either outdoors or indoors.

KAPA®plast and KAPA®tex are the other two materials offered by Pixartprinting. Both are available in 5mm thick sheets and are slightly more affordable versions, providing different printing results. KAPA®plast is a new and exclusive material with a canvas painting feel in texture and in colour, while KAPA®tex prints have vivid colours and are excellent as matt photographic reproductions. KAPA®tex is the lightest option so may be a little fragile for certain uses, whilst the other three are ideal if you need something sturdier.

Metal hangers can be included with the Smart-X® and Foamcore panels, whilst a scratch-resistant gloss varnish can be added to Smart-X®, Foamcore and KAPA®plast boards.

Foam board sign sizes

All the materials are available in a variety of sizes or can be printed in personalised sizes and shapes. A cut-to-shape option is available for custom shapes, making it an excellent choice for 3D advertising.

Foam core printing order process

Pixartprinting has designed the foam board signs online order form to be as easy to follow as possible. Extra information is available on the materials and other fields if you click on the “i” icon on the right-hand side. As you work your way through the order form, the price and delivery dates will update in real time so you can adjust your choices to adapt to your budget and deadlines.
