Gator (Ultra) Boards offer the vibrancy and high quality of Foam Board printing with an added resistance.
They are perfect for signage, exhibits, and displays.
The surface prevents moisture from penetrating allowing the printed images to look vibrant and retain images in high quality.
Gator Board is a heavy-duty, plastic panel that features a litho-grade high-impact polystyrene surface that makes it ideal for permanent displays and signs.
The dent-resistant styrene liners are secured to the foam center that keeps the panel flat and rigid, bending and crushing because of the extra dense core.
Matte and Gloss laminations are also available for a high-end finish and added durability.
Lamination also adds a moisture barrier that helps to prevent bowing and warping.
Gator Foam is an extruded polystyrene foam similar to foam. With its added strength from melamine and wood fiber veneer, Gator Foam is stronger than other foam boards. It is suitable for museum displays and presentations.

Create your file in CMYK mode with a resolution of 300dpi.
If your file has been created in RGB or includes RGB objects, we recommend converting the file to CMYK.
Do not include bleeding or crop marks in your artwork.
Your artwork should reflect only what you need to be printed in the final product.
Before you upload your
artwork, be sure your artwork is sent in the same size or ratio as your order.
In order to provide you the fastest turn around, all artworks for Large Format products are sent directly to press.
We will not be responsible for any reprints if your file is sent in size ratio different than the measurements specified in your order.
If you need a decimal size or special size, you requested through our “Estimate” section.
If you are working with vector images (in programs like Adobe Illustrator), the final size artwork is not necessary unless you have placed photographs into your document. Then the above guidelines will apply.
All fonts should be converted to curves or outlines.
We suggest your files to be flatten or rasterized if possible to minimize the file size.
We accept the following file formats: PDF and JPG files.
JPG files are accepted, but they must be prepared properly (It’s strongly suggested that the JPG is created the closest size possible to the final print size).
For an extended resistance on weather and abrasion we offer High Gloss Lamination.
Lamination Laminated with Pressure Sensitive High Gloss Film helps in keeping materials as good as new for many years, increasing the durability as well as preserving the color.
