10 Reasons to Print Photos on Foam Boards


Do you remember the time when you went to CVS or another pharmacy to get your photos printed? You could use their machine where you plug in your USB and decide on the size you want printed?


Once you’ve printed your photo, you drive over to a frame shop where you:

  • Spend a lot of time trying to figure out a frame that not only complements your photo but also your room decor. 
  • Receive a large bill 
  • Pick up your framed photo in glass and hope you do not break it before you hang it in your desired room


That wasn’t that long ago folks!


Why bother trying to take your print to a frame shop nowadays when photo printing has come a long way in the past decade or two? When you look at your lovely family photo on the wall, you don’t want to think about how much money you spent to put up the photo...you want to focus on the memory.


One of the many benefits of recent printing technology is the affordability and accessibility of printing photos. 


Printing on foam board directly is extremely economical. 


Foam board or foamcore board is made of a dense foam core sandwiched between two sheets of matte paper. Foam core is typically made from polystyrene, the same plastic that is also used to make styrofoam. Because the polystyrene core is 95-98% air, foam core boards are incredibly lightweight.


Have you been searching for a great gift idea?


Here are our top 10 reasons to use foam boards to print your next beautiful photo:

  1. Super affordable - you save time and money on framing
  2. Lightweight - polystyrene core is 95-98% air
  3. Portable - you can easily move the photo whenever you need without worry (e.g. swap it out for holidays)
  4. Tactile - you don’t have to worry about fingerprints like you would on glass
  5. Long lasting - as long as you take good care of it
  6. Durable - strong enough to stand on its own or be mounted
  7. Focus is on your photo - no need to worry about borders or frame matching
  8. Options - easy to add a finish from glossy to textured to matte
  9. Flexible - can print any size or shape easily
  10. Trendy - gift something personal to loved ones (hint: Mother’s Day is coming up on May 10th)


Foam boards are becoming increasingly popular and trendy for all the reasons mentioned above.
