Materials we print on
A fluted plastic board that is cheap and lightweight but has low durability. Typically used for estate agents’ boards, it is suitable for temporary promotional, directional or health & safety signage. Can be laminated to extend durability.
Foamboard / Foamex
A stronger board, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, it is waterproof and available in 3/5/10mm thicknesses. Appropriate for internal graphics, exhibition displays and outdoor signage such as shop signs, directional signs and more long-term promotional signage.
This material has the longest durability and strength, but is still lightweight as it’s made of aluminium composite – basically a sheet of solid plastic sandwiched between 2 aluminium sheets. It is only 3mm deep and doesn’t rust or fade over time. It is suitable for all sorts of outdoor signage, particularly permanent and large signage for which foamboard would be too heavy and vulnerable.
Size & shape
We can print up to the size of our largest digital flat bed printer which is 2440 x 1220mm. We use large format digital printing technologies or screen printing (or sometimes a combination of both) to get the desired finish and colour density. Other print finishing techniques are used to create any special effects required such as reflective areas or braille.
Foamex and Dibond can be cut to any shape, corners rounded and can also be used for cut out lettering.
