Foam Board prints are the most affordable rigid option for sprucing up a wall or living space, or for temporary photo prints for memorials, parties, weddings, or any event where people are being honored. Your photo or other image will be printed beautifully in full-color on this special media, specifically designed for our UV printer to give you vibrant, long lasting colors.
Foam Board is a specially designed print media that consists of an inner layer of polystyrene foam covered with two layers (top and bottom) of specially-coated, ultra-smooth, bright-white paper designed to respond to our premium UV ink to make your photo look great. Foam Core prints are lightweight but rigid.
We offer Foam Core prints in the standard 3/16" thickness.
We offer standard sizes for your convenience, but we can make your custom print in just about any size, from 8 inches by 10 inches to a full 48 inches by 96 inches. If you need a non-standard size, just order the standard size that is the next size larger (in square inches - length times the width) and request in the comments section the actual size you need. Super large printed boards cost a lot more to ship, so if you are looking for a printed photo board larger than our listed sizes, your shipping costs will go up dramatically.
Our custom photo boards are great for just about any space.

What is FOAM BOARD and what is it used for?
Foam Board is a specially design material (media or substrate as it is known in the business) that consists of an inner layer of polystyrene foam covered with two layers (top and bottom) of specially-coated, ultra-smooth, bright-white paper designed to respond to our specially printed premium UV ink to make your photo look great.
You might remember the Foam Board of the past which was called poster board. Our Foam Core boards are NOT those, but do share a variety of features in common including a great price for a great product. So Foam Board is an excellent option when you need an inexpensive, but great looking print. The affordability makes it perfect for wall collages or larger prints. In fact, we can print up to 4 feet by 8 feet.
Another great feature of Foam Core is its ease of cutting. So if you have a special project that needs cutting to make it extra special, we can do that too. We have the best in industry Zund cutting system for which nothing is too hard to do.
We print your photo or design with UV resistant ink onto high quality 3/16" foam core board.
- Your image printed on 3/16" thick foam core with sharp, crisp, vibrant, color.
- Free simple design help
- Custom cut options are available, so get creative!
- Foam Board Custom Prints come in just about any size so we can make one to fit just about any space on your wall!
These Foam Board Custom Prints are perfect for just about any situation, in addition to beautifying your home, office, or building. They are great as gifts or decorations for Weddings and Wedding Receptions, Commencements and Graduations, Quinceañeras, Bar Mitzvahs, Confirmations, Family Reunions, Retirement parties, Wedding Anniversaries, Engagement parties, Bridal showers, Funerals and Memorial services, Awards Ceremonies, Births and Birthdays, Banquets and Roasts, Sporting Events, Political events and rallies, School functions, Church events, Welcome Home parties, and many other events where people are being honored.
Shipping rates for light products like these are based on Dimensional Weight (DIM) and not actual weight. Dimensional Weight is what the shipping company (FedEx in this case) determines a package of any given size should weigh. Since they charge by the weight and not the volume of the package, they set a minimum rate for the space the item takes up in their trucks, planes, and cargo haulers. Previous to the implementation of DIM weight companies were shipping small items in large boxes (one size fits all) and taking up enormous amount of space and paying only for the weight. This is the way the shipping company gets us to keep the volume to a minimum so they can maximize their limited cargo space.
So if the weight seems a bit unreasonable, that is because it is. But it is out of our hands.
This Foam Board Custom Print has an average turnaround production time of 3 days AFTER the approved design is submitted to the printer, plus transit shipping time.
Screen Proofs depict Design Layout, Text Accuracy & Image Placement, but will only ESTIMATE Color Matching or Color Density. We DO NOT guarantee that the Custom Printed Sign will match the color displayed on your Computer Monitor or Printer exactly. Every substrate (print media) has a different density than paper so printed material will look differently. We can match colors fairly well, however.
Vista Flags has no upload capability on our web site (after checkout), so we communicate via email. Since we need everything in writing, all correspondence concerning custom products is done via email. Once we receive your email indicating a design as APPROVED, Vista Flags is released from ALL liabilities for any errors including, but not limited to: Grammar, Spelling, Color Matching, Size, Image Placement, Resolution, and Color Density. Custom products are NOT returnable. However, we will make every attempt to satisfy our customers.
While we try to match the colors as accurately as possible, a variety of things will alter the colors, some of which are beyond our control (currently) including humidity. Inks respond differently to temperature and can change from batch to batch. Foam Board Custom Prints are not returnable.
Foamboard custom prints are very versatile. You can have them framed, mount on an easel, or even use velcro to attach them directly to the wall. These foam board prints are very light-weight, so you might be able to use poster putty or other removable adhesive, depending on the size and shape of the board.
