Foamboard and ultraboard are excellent, affordable methods of printing high quality, vibrant images for multiple uses and can be printed on one or both sides. Our most common size is 3/16″ thick but 1/2″ and 1″ thick substrates are available as well.
These types of prints are ideal for indoor displaying for your office, churches, tradeshow event booths, or even mounted to a wall as display art.
People are probably more familiar with foamboard, it’s an extremely lightweight substrate with a paper coating on both sides. While it is a substantially cheaper material, it does have drawbacks. The most prominent of which is its durability. Foamboard is quite fragile and can be dented or damaged very easily.
Ultraboard, also known as Gatorboard, is much sturdier. It has a similar foam core but has a thin plastic coating on both sides. This allows ultraboard prints to take a bit more abuse. It is still a fragile product and can be damaged if dropped.
