8 Brilliant and Useful Foam Board Sign Ideas

Foam Boards are affordable, lightweight and incredibly portable, so it’s not surprising that both small and large businesses use them to target passersby and local customers.

Thanks to their versatility, foam boards can be used for countless promotional and practical applications. We thought in today's Lightning Prints blog, we’d share some creative ideas on how you can use and display our unexpectedly brilliant foam boards printing in Singapore!

Home Business

There are many advantages to have a home-based business such as a home spa service. But don't miss out on the steady foot traffic you would get in a more traditional retail environment. A well-positioned foam board sign can help capture new customers by appealing to anyone driving by as well as your neighbors and their visitors. If your estate allows it, you may even want to put a sign or two at the void deck, lift lobby or house gate.  And, unlike large pull-up banners or window decals, foam boards are easy to remove and store when you’re done for the day.

Raise Awareness
