Square Signs offers gator board printing in custom sizes, shapes and thicknesses with a selection of different accessories. We provide shipping all across the US and Canada. Check our terms and policies page to see if this product qualifies for special offers or shipping discounts.

Usage of Gator Board Signs

Also spelled as gatorboard, this product serves a multitude of purposes. You can sketch any kind of custom gator board signs you can envision, and just to get your creative juices flowing, these popular ideas may help you come up with some pretty unique and attractive designs.

Different gator board signs for different purposes on white and black material

Informative Displays

Whether you need “open” and ”closed” hanging displays or safety notices, this medium is a great choice. It’s as light as foam board printing with the added benefit of being more durable. It can withstand even rougher handling.


Advertising Gator Board Signs

Print promotional graphics on this medium to achieve a professional appearance which makes for effective advertising. With a wide range of mounting alternatives, you can set it up anywhere in any venue.

Decorative Boards

Use this material to decorate your walls with quotes or create wedding boards if you want a more lightweight alternative to other mediums like custom acrylic signs. Its base coat comes in either black or white, but you can choose any other background color to be printed on it.

Gator Board Photo Prints

More affordable than acrylic photo prints, gator board photo printing provides top quality visuals. Whether you need them for home decor or as gallery exhibits, custom gator board signs will leave you satisfied.

Wayfinding Panels

Create a better guest experience at your venue with a wayfinding system implemented through gator board printing. You can have them cut in the shape of arrows or any other custom shape you can think of.

Gator Board Printing and Material

We use UV inks and state-of-the-art machinery to provide you with quality products. We have two alternatives for you to choose from for gator board printing.

Single-Sided Gator Board Printing

Get gator board printing on one side of the material and showcase it on a wall, easel or elsewhere. Your message or graphics will get a lot of attention with this option.

Double-Sided Gator Board Printing

Make the most of your product with double-sided gator board printing. Hang it to showcase both of them or flip it to change the display whenever you need. By default, we print the same design on both sides. Contact us in case you want to have different designs printed.

This material consists of a composite foam core coated with wood fiber veneer. The faces may look and feel like paper but they last longer. The material comes in all white (core and coating) or all black options.

You also have the following thickness choices: 3/16" (0.188"), 1/2" (0.5") and 1”.

Cutting Options for Custom Gator Board Signs

Style your display in the form you like with our different cutting options. Even though you can get any custom shape with us, we still offer some popular standard options for an even more personalized appearance.

Square, rounded, outline and overline shape options for gator board signs

Square/Rectangle Cut

With 90° pointed angles, this is the standard option in our industry and by far the most popular choice among customers.

Rounded Cut

Having the same right angles as the square/rectangle cut, this one comes with smooth rounded corners at ¼”-½” radius.

Outline Cut

Design your board in whatever shape you like and choose this option so we cut it in that exact shape. Kindly bear in mind that if your design includes two pieces that are meant to be separated, you should order two separate boards. If the two pieces are in the same design, they will be connected to each other.

Overline Cut

This option is custom-shaped like the outline cut, but it adds an extra ¼”-½” border. The border will have the original color of the material you’ve chosen. Remember that the border thickness will be included in the board’s overall dimensions and not added to the original size you chose. If you want custom borders or if you want them in a color other than the basic black or white coat, you should include that border in the design and opt for outline cutting instead.

Popular Sizes for Gator Board Signs

If you’re not sure what size would be best suited for your needs, check the most popular dimensions in the industry to help you make your choice: 12”x24”, 18”x36”, 24”x48”, 36”x72”, 48”x96”. Check the chart in this section for a visual comparison before ordering your gator board printing.

Installation Options for Gator Board Signs

This lightweight material allows for different installation methods. You can get creative, the following are a few variations we offer.

Direct Mounting

Mount the board directly to the wall or any other smooth surface with command strips. They’re strong enough to carry the weight of this material and they leave no residue when removed. A set of four strips can hold up to 12 lbs.

Free Standing

Use easel backs to display your product. We offer a few sizes to match your requirements.

Hanging

Get zip ties or suction cups with hooks to hang your custom gator board signs. You can also use ropes for this product.

Drilled Holes

You’ll need holes on your board for certain mounting options. We’ll handle that part and make your life easier by sending it with pre-drilled holes. You only need to select that option in our tool. Make sure that no important data or design elements will be cut out from the gator board printing.

FAQ

Is gator board printing suitable for outdoor use?

It’s not recommended to use custom gator board signs outdoors. We use UV-resistant inks for gator board printing but the material itself can’t withstand harsh weather conditions for a long period of time. Short term outdoor usage in mild weather should be fine. We also offer other alternatives suited to outdoor usage such as corrugated plastic signs.

How do foam and gator board signs differ?

The outer layer is what makes these two materials different. While the former is coated with paper, the latter is coated with wood fiber veneer.

Are gator board signs waterproof?

This medium is made of solid foam core sandwiched between two wood fiber veneers. These rigid materials make the product resistant to moisture but not completely waterproof.

Where to buy gator board signs?

Order your product with us and rest assured that you’ll receive premium gator board printing and top-tier material. We offer full customization to meet your most intricate needs.

Do you offer photo displays on this material?

Yes, we offer high quality gator board photo printing that’s fit to be displayed in galleries.

Do you offer shipping?

We ship our products across the USA and Canada. Check our terms and policies page to see if this product qualifies for special offers or shipping discounts.

Their quality is the very best.

    I use these as calibration targets. They are quite rigid and compared to aluminum products, really light and easy to handle. Only improvement would be a true matte ink which will work well for calibration application (no glare).

      I needed to print a highly detailed piece at 48"x48" and the client described the print as glorious and chose it to be a focal piece at their public-facing facilities! Very highly appreciated!

                The online ordering platform offers me to select and try out some templates before deciding what to order. My guideline on planning and preparing for the gatorboard sign was quite simple and appropriate for myself, even during the Covid-19 era. Their prints are first-class quality. Excellent, always quick and reliable service!
