Foamex Board Printing

Foamex Board Printing


We print directly onto Foamex boards using the best large format printing machines and, because we print direct to media, our boards are more durable, better looking and more cost-effective than with other processes. Our DTM printing creates high-quality prints that require no lamination which make them ideal for interior and exterior locations. Foamex is a lightweight, rigid, hard centred board that is extremely versatile and comes in different thicknesses. It is easy to cut by hand or machine making it a good choice for many applications.

Uses for Direct to Media Printed Foamex

  • Promotional displays, point of sale and window displays.
  • Advertising boards and site boards.
  • Signage
  • Hoarding displays
  • Large format displays

You can order online low cost, high-quality boards printed single or double-sided to a choice of thicknesses including 3mm, 5mm and 10mm to your custom size and shape. Our advanced cutting system means that we can cut your custom design as a square or follow complex shapes and even drill holes ready for installation.

Supplying Artwork

Please include the dimensions and material in the name of the file.

Accepted file formats:

  • PDF
  • AI
  • EPS
  • JPEG

Please ensure fonts are converted to outlines or embedded in the file.

Artwork should be supplied at the correct size, with graphics as vectors. Artwork should be supplied with 5mm bleed.

For artwork that needs to be scaled down, please include the scale in the name of the file. At 100%, the resolution needs to be 100dpi with 5mm bleed. If the artwork has been scaled down, the dpi and bleed should be adjusted proportionally so that they are correct when scaled back up. For example, files supplied at 50% would need to be 200dpi with 2.5mm bleed.

Please supply artwork using CMYK or spot colours.

Cut paths must be on a separate layer labelled ‘cut’.

If artwork is not supplied correctly, a studio fee will apply and may result in delays with your order. Please note, we will print the artwork as it is supplied to us and therefore cannot accept responsibility for mistakes within the artwork.

Delivery and Collection

Orders are usually dispatched / ready to collect within 2 working days. However, if you need something urgently please contact us before placing your order.

When delivery is selected, orders are shipped on a ‘next day before 4pm’ service and a signature will be required. If you have selected collection we will email you as soon as this is ready to collect from our Hove address. Our opening hours are Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm.


We print up to a maximum size of  2 metres by 3 metres in a single section.

Our printers use CMYK plus light Cyan and Light Magenta for the highest quality and we also print with white ink.


Our UV curing direct to media printing process is one of the most environmentally friendly printing processes and, because the use of mount films and PVC laminates are not required with our processes, the environmental impact is further reduced.
