Foamex Printing

Foamex board is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and comes in a range of thicknesses – 1mm, 3mm, 5mm and 10mm. Printing on Foamex provides a cost effective way of updating board signage, and with full colour printing at 1440 dpi and weatherproof and UV-resistant inks, it looks great too. Matt or Gloss laminate options are also available to give your sign extra protection if it’s to be used outdoors.

Tips for Using Foamex Board

Foamex has a great smooth surface that makes graphics look crystal clear at the high resolution we use when printing them. For a really professional finish decide at the design stage how you will hang your sign so we can advise on the best way to integrate your chosen hanging method with the design – for example co-ordinating nail ends that blend into your design colour scheme, or pre-drilled holes for hanging.
