Gator Board Printing
Gator Board is much stronger than Foam Core and roughly the same weight. Unlike Foam Core, Gator Board prints do not warp over time. Perfect for indoor use, this rigid substrate is used to print custom artwork, menu boards, posters and photos.
Styrene is a flexible PVC plastic that can be rolled up, it is somewhat rigid but does not offer the same rigidness of the gatorboard. Gatorboard is like taking two styrene panels and sandwiching a layer of foam in between. It creates large panels that are very durable and will not warp like a polystyrene panel.
Ultraboard is a durable material that has a plastic front and back with a foam center. It is very durable, and rigid and is designed for interior, long term use. Gatorboard is very similar to ultraboard in terms of durability, also intended for interior long term use. The faces of gatorbaord are made of a wood-fiber veneer. Ultraboard plastic faces provide durability against dents, and other impacts.
Both gatorboard and foamcore are made for interior use due to the foam based centers. However foamcore is made for temporary uses while gatoboard is made for long term durability. Gatorboard is much more dent resistant, impact resistant and moisture resistant due to the plastic veneer provided on both faces of the graphic.
