Foam Board: The most widely used board because it’s inexpensive and easily disposable. This is the correct board to choose for a piece that is going to be used once or just a few times because it’s a bit flexible and the corners tend to ding easily. Available in white or black.
Ultra Board: ULTRA BOARD is a heavy-duty, all-plastic panel that features a plastic surface rather than a paper or wood fiber veneer. Ultra Board is especially recommended for screen printing and is also exceptional for permanent signs and P .O.P Displays. Best used indoors, this material has superior durability and dent resistance. The styrene liners are secured to the foam center with a remarkable bond that keeps the board flat and rigid. The moisture proof surface helps inks and paints to stand out vividly.
Sintra Board: Sintra Board is thinner than any of the other options but is very heavy so isn’t a good choice for large images. It’s a good choice for items that need to endure. It is available in white and black.
PVC Board: PVC Material is a smooth, bright white rigid plastic that is lightweight, yet very durable and weather resistant. They are great for both indoor and outdoor use, and have a low-glare, matte appearance.
