Sintra – Foamcore – Coroplast
What is the difference?

When choosing a hard substrate, it’s best to think ahead of what your particular needs are and what you are using it for.

Foamcore is great for indoors for temporary signage. It is lightweight and economical. It can be used outdoors as well for events such as weddings and meetings, but it is not recommended for long term use as it can be rather fragile.

Sintra is a rigid and durable PVC board that is available in several thicknesses. It is commonly referred to as Gator Board. They can be used for long term signage for both indoors and outdoors.

Coroplast is often used for Lawn Signs as it is weatherproof and long lasting. It is not as rigid as Sintra but is a lower priced alternative.
