What are the Standard Foam Board Sizes?

August 29, 2017

Foam board or also referred to as foam core is made of a rigid, extra dense, lightweight plastic foam center and is faced on either side with two very thin sheets of smooth, printable coated paper. This gives Foam Core unique strength properties while having the weight and bulk of plastic foam. It’s so lightweight, you can easily hang foam core prints from the ceiling without a special weight-specific hanging system. Foam Core is water resistant, bends slightly but is not crease-proof, and has a semi-strong impact capacity. Sounds amazing, right? We agree; foam core is your best option if you’re looking for lightweight, rigid dimensional signage with quality durability at the lowest cost.


Whether used for interior or exterior display, foam core boards are an ideal solution for presenting your brand’s information or visual content. Also, our foam board printing and mounting is great for exhibition boards and indoor sign displays. It is lighter and costs less, and is therefore ideal for short-term use.


Foam core signs are ideal for lectures, presentations, trade show booth designs & displays, point of purchase displays, menu boards, conferences, temporary signage and high-quality photo printing.


Foamboards are available in many different sizes. The common large sheets come in four Imperial sizes of 8′ x 4′, 60″ x 40″, 48″ x 36″ and 40″x 32″. We can custom cut foam board prints or blank foam core to any shape and size.


The metric equivalent of these is 2440 x 1220mm, 1524 x 1015mm, 1220 x 915mm and 1015 x 813mm The thicknesses that foam core board is commonly available in Australia are 3mm, 5mm, 10mm and 20mm. The 3mm, 5mm and 10mm board is available in either a black or white colour and as either plain or adhesive coated.


Not all boards come in all sizes and references so the best place to check them is in the online store and if you don’t see your size either submit a cut to size quote from the form here or contact us for a custom sizing quote.


We regularly cut boards into standard “A” sizes like A4 foamboard, A3 foamboard, A2 foamboard, A1 foamboard and A0 foamboard.
