5 benefits to use polystyrene foam to make dimensional signage

Polystyrene foam is a lightweight and versatile material that can be used to create dimensional signage. Here are five benefits to using polystyrene foam for dimensional signage:

  1. Lightweight: Polystyrene foam is a lightweight material, which makes it easier to install and transport. 

  2. Customizable: Polystyrene foam can be easily cut and shaped using our Obelisk Foam Plotter, into a variety of shapes and sizes, making it a great material for creating custom signage. It can be cut into intricate designs or simple shapes, and can be painted or finished to match a brand's color scheme.

  3. Durable: Polystyrene foam is a durable material that can withstand harsh weather conditions and is resistant to moisture, making it a great option for outdoor signage. However it needs to be protected from UV light. Always paint or use a varnish when installing your signs outdoors. It is also resistant to impact and can withstand minor bumps and scratches.

  4. Cost-effective: Polystyrene foam is a cost-effective material compared to other options such as PVC, acrylic, metal or wood. It is a great option for businesses with a limited budget but still want to create high-quality, eye-catching signage.

  5. Eco-friendly: Polystyrene foam can be recycled and reused, making it an environmentally friendly option for signage. Additionally, it does not emit harmful chemicals during production or disposal, making it a safer option for the environment and for workers who handle it during production.
