Foam board signs are a great way to advertise any business or event in a professional, stylish, and eye-catching display. Their extreme affordability and versatility make foam boards a very popular choice for indoor signage options.


Foam board signs are lightweight, portable, and sturdy, making them the ideal choice for various applications.

Mount foam board signs on the wall or display them on an easel—either way, our foam boards are quick and easy to set up. Large format foam signs can be readily displayed with floor standing sign holders, maximizing visibility. Showcase your event with foam core posters today!


Foam board signs, also known as foam core signs, are an economical, professional, and lightweight sign option. This type of board is made of an extruded polystyrene foam center with two layers of coated paper on either side. The coating acts as a primer and is made explicitly for direct printing with UV ink. Both the front and back surfaces are smooth, untextured, and ideal for printing solid color, text, vivid graphics, and photographic imagery.

While foam boards are sturdy, please keep in mind they aren’t meant to last forever. If you’re looking for a more durable solution, you can upgrade your sign to UltraBoard or Gator Board.


UltraBoard has styrene (plastic) faces with the same inner foam as foam board. The plastic faces give it a luster finish and make it a bit more durable than foam board, but they can get chipped if the UltraBoard is dropped.

UltraBoard would be recommended for repeated indoor use.

Gator Board

The strongest material out there is Gator Board. Gator Board has paper faces, just like foam board, but includes a heavy-duty inner core. Because Gator Board uses paper faces, the printed product has a matte finish. This material can also be ordered with a black foam center for a different type of look.
