Let me tell you why!
Many people choose Foam Core for their custom signage because it is lightweight, rigid and economically priced. But what they don't know is how sensitive to damage the material really is.
Foam Core is 3/16" thick foam with a smooth paper coat on both sides. This material…
- takes almost no effort to damage
- is prone to surface imperfections and indentations
- is easily scratched and bent up …compresses but does not spring back into place
- and any amount of moisture will cause irreversible damage!
In short, after very little handling, your Foam Core sign will begin to look unprofessional.
Introducing Foam Core Ultra!
Here at TheSignChef, we prefer a little something called Foam Core Ultra. This is a completely different product than Foam Core, but has all of its good ingredients and none of the bad. Foam Core Ultra is 3/16" thick foam, and is coated on both sides in perfectly smooth plastic, rather than paper.
Foam Core Ultra is as lightweight as Foam Core but far more rigid. It is more dent resistant than Foam Core and is completely waterproof. So Foam Core Ultra is better for signs that are handled and transported repeatedly.
