Sign industry fabricators have found success and ease of fabrication in using Gatorfoam®, cutting Gatorfoam board and creating Gatorfoam letters for signage applications of all types. In the past heavier materials were utilized, including dangerous metals. These metal signs were a danger as they could easily hurt someone, and damage the interior of a building, if they fell.

Polymershapes, plastic suppliers of Gatorfoam, supply the sign industry with several different types of plastics that can be used for signage. A Charlotte based company that specializes in creating custom interior signs for supermarkets up and down the East Coast has used Gatorfoam to create their signs for the past 20 years, and we are the supplier of this type of foam board, for them. 

Industry leaders in fabrication choose Gatorfoam and other types of foam board for their applications because it is affordable, easy to cut, and lightweight. These types of foam board can be cut with CNC machines and painted with custom colors after being cut to shape. It can digitally printed, or screen printed as well.

We can cut Gatorfoam board for all types of signs. Gatorfoam board sheet can be ordered from Polymershapes in the following thicknesses ranging from 3/16-inch to 2 inches and in standard sheet sizes up to 60-inches by 120-inches.
