Gator Board vs. Foam board Signs

Thinking of investing in board signs to enhance your promotional strategy but can’t decide between gator board signs and foam board signs?
Well, that’s a common dilemma. Both gator board and foam board signs offer promotional benefits and are lightweight, durable and versatile. However, some differences set the two options apart.

If you want to know the similarities and differences between the two types of signs, then you have come to the right place.

Let’s get started!

·  Gator Board Signs

Customized printed gator board signs are a reliable signage option since they have rigid foam at their core. This ensures the frame is stable yet lightweight. The quality of the boards becomes apparent during use. When it comes to hanging or handling these signs, they provide better results than foam board signs. They are a preferred option for permanent signage. Since they can be mounted using screws and hooks, they’re easy to hang and you can be sure that their quality won’t be compromised. Some service providers even attach grommets during the manufacturing process for easy handling.

You may be impressed with the long list of benefits, but it’s important to know the drawbacks of customized printed gator board signs, too. The only issue that people have with gator board signs is their lack of flexibility since it can make transportation difficult.     

·  Foam Board Signs

Now that you know about gator board, it’s time to explore foam board signs. They are a more flexible version of gator board signs. They have a foam core, so they are also lightweight and bendable. The lightweight yet sturdy material can easily be cut and folded into any shape you want. Being cost-effective is another factor that makes custom foam board signs an attractive signage option. However, marketers usually opt for foam board signs when they are looking for single-use signage options.

When it comes to hanging these boards, it’s better to use adhesive or hooks. If you do have to use screws or hooks, practice caution since the board can break easily under such pressure. It’s always better to ask your service provider to do the job for you.
