Foamex Menu Boards

Foamex material is also the most popular material for all kinds of restaurant menu boards catering menu signs. Foamex is smooth and rigid and also suitable for both indoor and outdoor use so may be very useful for both typical restaurants as well as outdoor market stalls or catering van menus.

Large Indoor Displays

For indoor displays we recommend either foamex or foam core material. Foamex panels are stronger but with foam core panels you have the benefit of very light weight comparing to foamex which may be very significant factor if you need the panels hung or attached just temporarily with i.e. velcro or double sided adhesive tape.

Large display panels can be screwed to walls or framework, hung in a frame or suspended from the ceiling (for suspended signs you may also consider display card panels).

Outdoor Signage Printing

Foamex is ideal for outdoor signage. It is not as heavy and expensive as aluminium shop signage and is still flexible to some extend to be able to hide any wall imperfections or better adjust to sign frames etc. Foamex is very durable for its price and so can withstand the typical outdoor weather. Also, because we directly print on the foamex with UV ink, the signage will have a higher quality finish than printing with other methods and is less susceptible to fading. Outdoor signage has never looked better.

Please go to the prices tab and pick one of standard sizes or feel free to send us a quick enquiry if you are interested in bespoke size and quantity.

Foamex is probably the most popular signage material, widely used especially as quick, low cost advertising signage which, because of its cheap cost, can be changed very often without stretching your advertising budget.

Foamex boards are made up of a strong PVC foam sheet.

It is inexpensive, moderately light, durable and extremely versatile material.

With stunning print quality on our state-of-the-art UV flatbed machines, we can prove that cheap advertising boards can still look stunning and make a highly positive impact on your business image.
