Foam Core Printing Vs. PVC Board Printing

Jul. 19, 2021

If you are looking for advertising print that will last for years, there are only a few options to choose from. You can choose foam core printing using foam board printing materials and techniques, or you can rely on PVC board printing. This article will discuss basic information about PVC logo printing and Sintra PVC board printing as well as foam core printing and its advantages and disadvantages.


Foam Core Printing

Foam core printing is ideal for projects, advertising materials, and signage that do not require a frame. It is more economical than most print jobs due to the lack of framing hardware, but of course, you can also choose framed foam core printing. Prints are printed on foam board, where the image stays vibrant for a long time. Foam board printing provides a moisture barrier when the image is laminated, so the material will not bend or warp even if it is displayed or even hung outdoors for an extended period of time. This method is popular because the image can be represented by any size of foam and can even display a picture that is divided into four by one.

PVC Board Printing

PVC sheet printing or sometimes called Sintra PVC sheet printing is a new method of printing marketing or advertising materials for businesses, industries, signage, etc. It is especially suitable for outdoor applications as they are very durable and unaffected by any weather. Sintra PVC board printing offers full-color options for various requirements so it can also be used indoors and outdoors. It can be used as store signs, menu boards, yard signs, trade show signs, and more. 

This type of PVC is super flexible, lightweight, and durable. Made from moderately expanded closed-cell polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, extruded into uniform sheets, PVC printed panels have a low-gloss matte finish, so prints stay dust-free, clean, and easy to maintain. Unlike foam sheets, PVC sheets are available in a variety of thicknesses and can be printed on any side. Due to the textured surface, this type of board produces little to no glare. Therefore, the signs remain clear. PVC sheets are also versatile and can be cut into different sizes and shapes.
