Sintra Printing vs Foam Board Printing

When should you print on Sintra board and when should you print on foam board? That’s an excellent question that many businesses struggle with. Foam board is lightweight with foam in the middle. Sintra board, on the other hand, is high quality PVC in the middle, while also a lightweight option. If you only want a temporary and more cost-effective solution for indoors, go with foam board signs. If you want something that will last longer and also be weather-resistant, use Sintra board.

  1. Nancy

    Mark and Todd were very helpful, friendly and prompt with all of the questions we had for building our board. The board looks great and we are happy with the product.

  2. Betty Key, PaveWest

    PaveWest contracted with Coastal Creative to provide a sign and about 60 prints for the walls in our new office.  Working with the crew there we were able design a sign for our lobby much nicer than we had originally designed ourselves.  We are very happy with the prints.  They were able to take pictures I didn’t think we would be able to enlarge, blow them up and maintain the quality.  A couple are 6’ by 4’.  Everyone I worked with at Coastal Creative was responsive to us, and their prices were the best I could find.  Thanks, guys!  We appreciate all your help

    We are a prop auction house that manage several projects with multiple partners, which means LOTS of printed materials that come flying my way last minute. Stacey has been absolutely amazing with all of the projects we’ve had, very reliable, and has become my go-to for any promotional or printed material we may need. Thank you for taking a huge weight off our shoulders, and delivering every project beyond my expectations!” – Airi M. Prop Store
