Sign Block

Sign Block is durable and long-lasting, its solid structure is built to withstand trying conditions.

Despite its resilience, Sign Block is lightweight – making it far easier to erect as part of a larger structure.

Why Choose Select Print For Your Sign Block

Select Print create Sign block out of a material made from polyurethane which possesses particularly desirable characteristics for 3D signage and bespoke displays. Also known as HDU Foam or Tooling Board, Sign Block is light-weight yet durable making it ideal for POS displays and exhibition graphics, as it can be put up and packed away multiple times without being damaged – or causing heavy-lifting or safety issues.

The material is relatively flexible when it comes to design and can be machined to create 3D designs or profiled down for more 2-dimensional signage. Typically, standard Sign Block comes in 2 shades: mint green and a peach colour which are used to communicate the density of the material. However, any number of finishes can be applied to the material meaning it can be made to look like almost anything!

Sign block is best known for being a sturdier replacement for Polystyrene, however it can be made to look like wood, metal or even brick work so provides great flexibility!

The Benefits of Using Sign Block

Sign Block is an ideal signage material for many things. However, as it is relatively new to the market with many print suppliers are not yet working with the material, and may be unaware of the vast number of benefits there are to working with the material.

Durability – Sign block, or HDU foam is very durable and as a result, is perfect for use indoors or outside. Providing it has been properly prepared and primed, sign block is suitable for humid environments, is completely waterproof and doesn’t rot like wood. In fact, it is proven to last up to 10 times as long as wood.

Light Weight – Sign block is incredibly light weight, similarly to polystyrene, but with much greater durability – meaning graphics made from sign block can be packed up and reused again and again. Compared to other sign materials including plastic, wood and metal, sign block is conveniently light weight and easy to handle.

Flexibility – When it comes to creating a design sign block provides great flexibility. The material can be used from as thin as 5mm right up to 1000mm in a single sheet, and it can be shaped and carved into any shape! Options vary from 3D lettering, film sets, POS material and even shop front signs. Sign block is also easily bonded meaning any number of 3D scenes or models can be created by bonding pieces together. The opportunities really are endless!

Finish – Flexibility doesn’t stop with the shape. Due to Sign block’s adaptability, it can be made to look like just about anything! Wood, metal, stone, brick or a mixture of the former effects can be applied to the material, meaning you have even greater flexibility over how the finished product looks.
