It’s time to lay out all the facts about Foamcore Boards, otherwise knows as foamboard, 3/16” mounting boards or just plain ol’ white boards. Regardless, it’s one of more popular items, so let’s dig in:
All of the boards that we sell include a pre-applied heat-activated adhesive. Simply place your print on the board and run it through your roll laminator. If you don’t have a roll laminator, you can use spray adhesive to coat the board before mounting by hand.
There are a number of safe, effective and low-cost ways to cut foamcore. For low-cost solutions, check out our FoamWerks cutters or ImageEdge ruler cutter. For mid-range options, check out the Simplex, Javelin or SircleTrim cutters. And for the highest-quality, heavy-duty option, check out the Excalibur 1000.
Hanging / Displaying It
You’ve got the final product…now how do you display it? For a simple and cost-effective solution, check out the Twist-n-Hook Foamcore Hangers. And for a higher-quality, heavier-duty option, consider the Stimpson 405 Grommet Press with special XL Grommets for use with foamcore.
Don’t forget those Plastic Corner Protestors – foamcore is fragile and those corners tend to get beat-up quickly. Don’t let that happen to you!
