What Are Foam Board Signs?

Foam board signs are a type of rigid sign, which are characterized by how lightweight yet sturdy and professional looking they are. Also called “foam core” signs, these signs are made of a polystyrene foam board. This foam material is then covered on the front and back with sheets of paper, plastic, or even wood veneer, depending on the type of foam core board sign it is. Foam board is widely used for indoor signs. The foam core doesn’t hold up well when exposed to weather and is difficult to completely seal against rain and other forms of moisture. This is why they’re best kept and displayed indoors in dry, cool areas. Since polystyrene and paper are inexpensive materials, foam board signs are an ideal choice for one-time events or areas with heavy traffic. When they get too old or if they’re damaged, it won’t hurt your budget at all to replace or repair them. Their life span and level of durability are all very good for a rigid sign, but it still depends on what kind of foam board sign you have.
