In the custom signage industry, we all too often find a gap between the expectation in a customer's design versus the real world execution of it. Between budget constraints, choice of material, and printing process, there is a lot that can frustrate a customer along the way. custom cut surfboard sign We at Displays2go have dedicated ourselves to reducing that gap by opening clearer lines of communication through the design process, placing more tools in the hands of our customers, and promoting transparency along the way. Palboard® is the latest effort in our line to reduce pain points — from the initial design, through the printing process, and ultimately to the day your new Palboard® sign is bringing new customers through your door.

Palboard® is a multi-layer board which combines a durable PVC surface with a low-weight foam core, which comes together to be easily portable while boasting an extra-tough shell to last in high-traffic areas. What's more, the white PVC surface allows for our digital printing process to create incredibly vibrant colors that would not be possible with other substrates. Due to the hard PVC shell, customers can expect smooth and crisp edge cuttings which help each graphic sign retain a refined and smooth structure even after cutting into a custom shape. With careful planning through the design process, customers are able to plan interlocking 3-dimensional signage, a surefire way to grab the attention of new customers.

Between the durability of construction, the graphic printing quality, and the ability to create custom-shaped signage displays, Palboard® offers near-endless opportunity.
