What to know about our foam board prints
Are you looking for the perfect combination of brilliant display and durable design? Then you’ve struck gold, because our foam board prints offer both. The rigid PVC foam boards we print on have a slightly glossy surface that gives your design a classy finish. At the same time, these boards are very light and stable – meaning the foam board prints are easy to handle and cannot cause any damage – and are therefore perfect to decorate children’s rooms or nurseries. And given how robust they are, our foamed PVC prints can also withstand tough weather conditions outdoors.
In particular, high white content designs make a special impact as foam board prints. This is because the material itself is bright white. This gives your new print a fresh, streamlined look thanks to the nature of the material.
Our foam prints, therefore, pair remarkably well with minimalist interior looks, such as the Scandinavian or industrial style. But they can also be focal points in a colourful space. Some examples of designs that feature high white content are black-and-white photos, sayings, world maps or modern illustrations. But other designs also benefit from the high colour brilliance we achieve by printing with UV inks.
From Klimt to Kandinsky – art on hard foam panels
Art doesn’t just look good in museums, your own four walls can also be made to be just as inviting with the right work of art. The effect of a particular design or image very often depends on the material.
Our foam prints are particularly suited to displaying modern art. Thanks to the UV inks used, the colours of the designs practically shine out. Pieces with colours and shapes in the foreground truly catch the eye. That’s why, for fans of Wassily Kandinsky, Hilma af Klint, Gustav Klimt and co., we recommend our foam board wall art when it comes to displaying your favourite pieces.
Our foam board prints are not only particularly suited to the kitchen and bathroom, but also to outdoor areas that are sheltered from the wind and children’s rooms. On a terrace or balcony, the material defies the weather conditions and can continue to catch the eye for many years to come.
Our foam board prints are such a good choice for kids’ rooms or nurseries because even those sticky little fingers can’t harm the easy-care material. Plus, as the prints are so lightweight, they aren’t a source of danger if things get a bit more action-packed! Browse through our hand-picked range and discover the perfect foam print for your home!
Our foam board prints are the perfect entry-level product. The material is light and stable, the colours are bright – and all this at a reasonable price.

For our foam board prints, we print the designs on bright white hard foam panels made of PVC. The outer edges remain white. The printable plastic panels are only 4 mm thick and their low weight is the most notable feature. The tough material is highly suited to children’s rooms or nurseries.
The material is particularly light – this makes our foam board prints easy to handle and hang up. As such, they are especially suitable for kids’ rooms. Due to the bright white surface of the material, designs printed on hard foam panels appear particularly colour-intensive. On top of this, they are moisture-resistant and therefore also make excellent decorations for outdoor areas protected from the wind.
The PVC hard foam panel is 4 mm thick and has white outer edges.
The design is applied to the hard foam board by direct UV printing. Using this technique, we create high-contrast, bright colours and a silky glossy look for our designs. Furthermore, the colours are water and light resistant.
The material is slightly shiny, with a satin finish. Reflections are not a problem due to the nature of the material. The plastic boards are also extremely light and robust and therefore easy to handle. As they are water and light resistant, our foam board prints are also well suited to damp rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms, as well as for outdoor use. The prints can be easily cleaned with a soft, damp cloth.
You can select the appropriate format on the product page. We have a wide range of possible sizes for you. All the formats offered can be shipped – depending on the size of the package, this will be via post, parcel service or courier.
Yes, it’s easy to use pins with our foam board prints. But be careful and remember that any puncture holes remain visible in the image.

Actually, there’s no difference in the material – Forex® prints are foam board prints. This means that the quality, properties and advantages are the same. Thanks to the dense core of the 4 mm thick hard foam board, the direct printing is protected from minimal scratches and the panel retains its shape. Moreover, hard foam panels are very light and therefore particularly easy to hang.
We deliver your print packed in a sturdy box, lying flat and well-protected.
It usually only takes a few working days for your foam board print to arrive at your home. The estimated delivery times can be found at the time of ordering, both on the product page and at the checkout. As soon as we send your print, you’ll receive a shipment confirmation by e-mail.
This is a matter that lies close to our hearts; we want to support the artists in our shop and to honour them for their work. But it is also a small imprint which is just a few millimetres high, and it is a necessary reference to the author and producer of the respective wall art. We design the labelling so that it does not detract from the effect of the design.
They are very robust, lightweight and inexpensive. That means that due to their low weight, foam board prints do not cause scrapes or scratches, even if things get a bit more action-packed! In addition, they are easy to wipe off and therefore forgiving of the odd handprint. Furthermore, as our designs are great value for money, they can easily be replaced or rearranged.
Indoors, our foam board prints last for many years. But even outdoors, they have a lifespan of several years, thanks to the robust material and the water- and light-resistant colours. With our foam board prints, you are choosing a long-lasting product.
