Foam boards are user-friendly material known for their sturdy and lightweight properties. They are feasible for cutting and gluing together because of which they have successfully made their way into the displaying, packaging and mounting works arena. Carrying the largest supply of foam boards, we present some of the most recommended substrates we offer:

1. Foamcore: Standard foam board is a versatile, all-around graphic and display board. This foam board consists of resilient extruded polystyrene core sandwiched between two layers of bleached, semi-gloss white clay coated paper. Ideal for screen printing, die cutting, mounting, framing and prototypes. 


This material comes in different thicknesses but the most common is 3/16" but it is available in 1/8", 3/8", and 1/2" as well. Foamcore is a substrate that is best for indoor, temporary use. It is inexpensive and lightweight. It is also prone to denting, so be careful of your corners as this material cannot handle rough handling.

2. Gatorboard: Gatorfoam foam board is an extruded polystyrene foam board bonded between two layers of Luxcell wood-fiber veneer. It's a heavy duty yet versatile foam board and is great for everything. This material is also available in a 1", 1 1/2", 2" 3/4, 3/16 and 1/2" thickness. It is similar to foamcore in that it has foam in the middle, but instead of having a thick paper on each side, it features thin sheets of plastic on each side. The plastic makes the material more durable and less prone to denting. 

It is better for something that you want to stick for a longer duration. Gatorfoam has various advantages as it is the original, heavy-duty graphic arts foam board that has an excellent reputation for its strong performance. The new, bright white facer is the brightest foam board of its kind and extremely suitable for digital and screen printing.

3. PVC Board: PVC, which is often referred to as Sintra, is a substrate that is made entirely of thin plastic. It is available in a variety of thicknesses and is quite durable. The substrate is moderately heavy and good for outdoor uses. It is heavier than gatorboard and can bend slightly; however, it is not prone to denting. Sintra PVC foam board is an extremely durable PVC sheet that is highly recommended for use in photo mounting, display construction and a variety of other uses. Sintra PVC is also available with a self-adhesive peel and stick film for mounting as well as without the adhesive.
