Description

Foamboard and paperboard are staples of the sign and graphics industry. Lightweight and versatile, these rigid printable boards offer many options in facings, core materials and grades. Polymershapes offers a wealth of foamboard and paperboard solutions – you can count on us to help you find the right material for your short- and long-term applications, such as direct printed signage, dimensional lettering, mounting and backing for framing photographs and art, packaging, and more.

Foamboards typically consist of an extruded polystyrene foam, sandwiched between facing materials including paper, high-impact polystyrene, and wood veneer. Specialty boards are available with facings of chalkboard, dry-erase surfaces, canvas, cork, and more.

Paperboards are a rigid substrate made entirely of paper materials. Corrugated core, or pressed fiber, rigid paperboards are an ideal recyclable solution for many graphics applications.
