Beloved by builders, Tecafoam has somewhat of an identity crisis. Referred to as Foamboard, Tecafoam, white board. . . .the branding of this item has been lost over time to be honest.
But its use remains eternal.
It can come in solid colours, but they tend to fade and a better solution is to cover a white sheet with block coloured vinyl.
Rigid white plastic - we like the 5mm thickness - it is easy to cut into any size or shape. It is rigid enough to be profile cut into fancy outlines, to create some truly imaginative signage. It is light enough to be screwed to an external surface and lasts longest if against a solid wall or fence.
It also has drawbacks. Mainly the fact that it shatters very easily if it takes a direct hit. Think stone from a passing lorry, or some brainless erk off his/her head on a Saturday night.
But at just £25 for an A3 sheet, it gives very economical signage for the start up.
And Murphy, the office mutt, couldn't help getting in the way of our photo session!
