Fome-Cor Board is the original graphic arts foam board with a great reputation for performance. The clay coated liners cover a non memory foam that stays crimped when pressure is applied making it ideal for embossing. Foam Core Board is used as a backing for indoor displays.  It can be die cut, scored and converted into appealing and unique displays for your business. This material is best used for displays in small quantities because it can be cost prohibitive for large runs. Card Board is a good alternative.  This is for indoor use only but can repel water better than unprinted cardboard.  This has excellent strength and is not as prone to warping as cardboard, although it can warp if not cared for properly.
