Foam Letters Signs For Offices & Events

When you’re looking for custom lettering that is both portable and affordable - especially for a temporary need, like an event or short term sale, foam wall lettering is the best choice. Foam board is available with a variety of finishing options to achieve almost any look, all while staying within your budget. Combined with its ease of installation, foam letter signs are a quick way to set your business or event apart, or have a decorative design that helps make an immediate visual impact.

Customized Foam Letters

Most of our foam letters are made of a rigid foam core material called gatorboard. This product is made by sandwiching a layer of high density foam between wood fiber veneers to give it additional strength and protection. The foam core is available in several widths depending on the size of the letters and the project, with standard sizes including:

  • 3/16"
  • 1/2"
  • 3/4"
  • 1"
  • 1 1/2"
  • 2"

We cut the foam board individually for each letter using a CNC router. This technology takes the design from a computer file and translates it into cut paths for the router, making it possible to create any shape and font, and even cut in between the board to create sharp details.

For finishing your letters, they can either be left with the standard foam or laminated with a metallic or plastic. Lamination provides additional durability, and can also create a more expensive look without the cost of metal or plastic lettering. Laminate facing options include:

  • Aluminum Facings
  • Brass Facings
  • Copper Facings
  • Acrylic Facings
Customized Foam Letters

The metal facings can have either a brushed finish for a softer appearance or a polished finish so that they shine. For acrylic or unlaminated letters, we can use any color you like and the specific colors in your branding can be replicated with PMS colors.

We can also create larger foam letters and foam board sign designs that measure several feet tall and are free standing, ideal for event use. Like all of our signs, these can be fully customized in terms of size, font, and color.

Foam Sign Benefits

When you need a short term lettering option for your business or event, or an affordable option for interior sign use, lettering using foam board has several benefits. These include:

  • Customizable - Because foam board can be cut into shapes and is available in a variety of colors, we can achieve almost any look. Finishing options can also create a professional look with metal or acrylic facings.
  • Cost Effective - Even if you choose metallic or plastic fronts for lettering, the foam base makes for a more affordable sign. It is still attractive and will be durable for short term use.
  • Easy To Install - Foam lettering is lightweight and can typically be affixed to the wall with adhesive backing when installation is required. Free standing foam lettering will stay upright on its own in the location of your choice. If you are traveling between events, foam lettering can be carried with ease.

Although not as long lasting as materials like plastic and metal, foam lettering will still withstand handling and ongoing use. Indoors, it can last for years if properly cared for and it will work outdoors for the short term, although water and sun will eventually diminish the letter's appearance.

Uses of Foam Lettering

Foam lettering is ideal for both company logo signs and directional labels such as room names and floor numbers. Large, free standing foam letters and foam numbers can also be a focal point at an event. The most common locations for foam letter signs are:

  • Schools
  • Offices
  • Retailers
  • Events
  • Galleries

Wherever they are used, foam letters are a flexible solution for professional and memorable letter signs to elevate your business or event.
