3/16” Premium Gatorfoam® is a rigid foam board, the industry standard for resisting warping. It is constructed of an extruded polystyrene foam core sandwiched between 2 wood-fiber veneers.
MATERIAL
Digitally Printed Gatorfoam® is printed with M&R’s UV cured inks. For super high resolution printing, go with a digitally printed decal.
INKS USED
Gatorfoam® will last 6 to 12 months indoors, longer in a low moisture/low humidity environment. Foamed products absorb moisture over time, which will expand and contract in temperatures that vary. This product is not meant for outdoor use for extended periods. Handle with moderate care, as foam products can be damaged easier than rigid metals. This material is more rigid than standard foam products.
DURABILITY
Free Ground Shipping on orders over $59. If each sign is over 10 square feet, there will be a large package shipping charge.
SHIPPING
Gatorfoam® will be free of defects, and will print beautifully, guaranteed. We will ship this product with extra padding, as foam products can be dinged with the ungentle hands of modern shipping companies.
BEST IN CLASS GUARANTEE
Standard turn around time is 2 days for small to moderate sized jobs, and grows with larger jobs.
TURNAROUND TIMES
This product is best for longer term, though still temporary, indoor display.

What is Image Quality how to I make my images print as best as possible.
Answers

  • Image quality is part art, part science. Generally, low resolution website pictures look terrible on signs. Web pages need to load quickly, so people visiting a page don't leave the organization's website. If high definition pictures are on the page, the page will load slowly. Thus, nearly every internet picture you find on a storefront or news page is low definition. It might look good at 2' x 2', but will look terrible at 12' tall. Before uploading a picture, zoom in. Is it grainy? Does the edge look crisp? If not sure, email us the image, let us know how big you want it, and we will let you know if it will look good enough to be persuasive. Sometimes, for a small fee, we can use commercial software to improve the quality. Files that are 100 kilobytes (kb) or less, even up to 1000 kb, are often too low quality to use on all but the smallest signs or decals.

    Google Images has the ability to display only high definition pictures- play with the settings. However, that does not mean you are legally allowed to use the image. Make sure before you use it. Often, people are honored to have someone use their picture, and say yes, if you ask nicely.

    Modern camera phones take excellent images if you choose the highest quality setting. Likewise, tablets can take great pictures, usable for signage products.

  • Available Colors for printing depends upon the printing method you choose. Silk Screen signs and decals have standard colors that do not incur any additional fees. If you desire a specific silk screen color, called a PMS color, we advise you call in to discuss your job. We have color matching experts. There will be an additional charge, to hand mix ink colors, for this service. This is the only way to guarantee Brand Guidelines and Specific colors are achieved. If the product you choose is digitally printed, we can likewise print with calibrated equipment to achieve specific CMYK values. Again, a phone call is recommended.

Answers

  • This is not an option we offer when ordering through our website. We do this because the process of grommeting Gatorfoam leaves a less than desirable finished product. If you insist on having your foam signs grommeted, please contact us via email or phone to arrange a custom order.

  • Gatorfoam signs are made to last 6-12 months under normal indoor conditions. However, if properly cared for, our foam signs can last for multiple years if kept clean indoors and away from direct UV exposure.

  • Our Gatorfoam sheets are 96” x 48”, so you can order any size up and including 96” x 48”. Please keep in mind that any size sign larger than 10 sq ft of total area will incur a large shipping charge. This is considered an oversized package and it very costly to ship. Very large signs may require freight shipping which is also very costly. Please give us a call or contact us if you have questions.

  • Unlike our standard foam board, Gatorfoam is much more rigid and less susceptible to bends and dents. Of course, because it is still a foam product, it is possible to damage it. We still advise it to be handled carefully.

Answers

  • Yes, regardless of the number of printed colors, your price is the same. We digitally print your image directly to the Gatorfoam in order to offer you the best combination of quality and price. If you prefer the highest quality printed image, we can print on a vinyl decal and apply it to the Gatorfoam.

  • At this time, we do not offer exact Pantone (PMS) color matching for our digitally printed signs. We can however offer PMS approximation. This means we will do our best to get as close as possible to your requested color(s). If you are ordering screen printed signs or shirts, we can certainly provide Pantone PMS color matching. Additional fees may apply. Call for details.

What resources are available for high resolution artwork?

Answers

  • This is the trickiest part of getting your signs or decals to look great. Starting with the highest definition image is the best way to end with something that look fantastic. Our culture is used to high def, so when we see something that is fuzzy, we often associate it with low quality. Our best recommendations to start with high definition imagery:


    1) Use a premium service like Shutterstock.com to purchase a high definition image, then upload it to us. Services like Shutterstock.com have royalty free, images that are often only $10. You can upload it to our design software and add elements to it to complete your signs.


    2) We subscribe to "Freepik.com", with a premium account. If you see an image at the Freeepik.com website that you would like to use, you can email us the photo name and/or number, and we will email it to you for use in your sign.

What kind of image should I use for my Logo?

Answers

  • Ideally, logos will be uploaded as an EPS of SVG file. This allows precise color instructions, sharp line work, a perfect logo. Most businesses have their logo's saved as a vector file (.eps, .ai, .svg). This is the way to upload files to get a precise result.

Does Good Guys Signs offer Professional Graphics Services?

Answers

  • Good Guys Signs employs many graphics artists. Like any artisan, some are great at composition, some have more illustration skills, and some focus on commercial design. We bill for this service to the minute, so it's fair to both you and us. Hint: It is helpful to be able to communicate graphically with an artist before they begin billable work for you. If you were to go to Google Images and find the type of lettering, coloring, pictures or art you like, they will be able to deduce quite a bit from the emailed files you send them. You might not be able to explain why you like some text, but they will instantly know you prefer your text to have a bevel with an inner glow, for example. This saves you money and frustration. Call if you would like to know more.
