Why use Foamex material for signs?
Foamex signs are a cheap signage solution that can be easily fixed to any surface. Foamex is perfect for signage either indoors or outdoors and has the advantage that it will not rot or swell like wood signage. Foamex is also far more durable than other substrates such as Correx. Foamex Signs are most commonly used for Advertising Boards, External and internal shop signs, and any other type of signage which requires a photo quality finish to it.

How to supply the best artwork – to get the best result
We want to provide you with the best quality print, and the better the artwork you send to us, the better able we will be to do just that.
Create your artwork at the actual size of the finished product, or scaled proportionally.
(to put it simply: Don't send long thin artwork if you are ordering a short wide board).
If your board is be put in a frame, or held by ties, or fixed with a batten etc.: - make sure your design will not result in important items being hidden.
Consider where your sign will be positioned - (for example: don't make text too small to read if the sign will be high on a wall, or at a roadside)
The best resolution for high quality images is 100dpi at full size. (For outdoor signs not viewed close up this can be lower).
(If you work at a scaled size you need to allow for the enlargement: SO for example - if your artwork is at 25% size then the best quality image resolution would be 400dpi.)
And remember to change the colour mode to CMYK.
DO NOT add bleed
DO NOT add crop/trim marks
DO NOT send artwork which floats in a larger area.
DO NOT include anything on the artwork that you do not want to be printed on the final sign.
Save a copy of your artwork to send to us.
You can send:
PDF FILES - should be in pdf version 1.5 or higher, with all fonts embedded.
DO NOT SAVE DOWN TO PDF VERSION 1.3 - this is likely to reduce the quality of your artwork.
If you are using PHOTOSHOP do not save as a pdf, but flatten your file and save it as a .TIF file, using LZW compression,
or as a .JPG using the HIGHEST QUALITY setting, and send this file.
