When looking for signage boards, thinking about the right kind of material is perhaps the first thing that will cross your mind. Now before we come down to the nitty-gritty of whether a Foamex Board should be your choice of material, let’s gain a better insight into what it really is. So, let’s begin with a very basic question
What is a Foamex Board?
Foamex boards are essentially superior quality and quite versatile PVC foam sheets, that are very fabrication friendly. To be honest, they are probably one of the easiest materials out there which you can easily bend, drill, glue, cut and then, of course, most importantly, you can print on it.
Now that this basic definition is out of the way, let’s look into where its usage lies. This brings us to the next question at hand –
What is a Foamex Board used for?
A Foamex board can be primarily used for making banners, signage or exhibition display panels. In fact, its fine cell structure makes it one of the most preferred choices for digital printers (professional ones of course). It comes in a variety of colours and specific sizes (3mm foamex and 5mm foamex being some of the most popular ones for signage). The fact of the matter is that you can actually achieve high quality, aesthetically appealing display products, which look far more expensive in quality, than they really are. All in all, they are a cost-effective option, and worth every penny you spend on them in terms of getting a bang for your buck.
