6 Things to Prepare Before You Make A Foam Board

by Jenny Fan

1. Prepare the Information You Need on the Foam Board 

The information you put on the foam board can be various. Such as information on goods and services that you offer, information about a bureaucratic flow or registration, promotions, and other information. You need to prepare information including the main information and additional information such as a contact person. Foam board printing is now widely available so it will be easy for you to make it anywhere and anytime. 

2. Organize the Information and the Layout 

Information on the foam board needs to be sorted from the main information to additional information. That way, your readers or audience will not be confused. In this case, which information needs to be known first, then read additional information if the reader is interested in buying or contacting you. Use a bullet point format for your information, so that the information will be easier to digest by the reader. You also need to sort the information layout and put it at the top for the main information, and additional information is put below it. 

3. Pick the Most Suitable Theme and Colour  

The theme you use on a board should be adjusted to the type of information you want to convey. If you want to make a foam board for a competition, then you need to create a theme that is festive. The theme will also make it easier for you to choose a suitable colour for the foam board. In addition, information about a promo or price reduction also needs to be made lively so that people who see it are interested in making a purchase. Usually, red and orange, or other bright colours, will easily grab your audience’s attention. 

4. Use A Nice and Organized Design 

Even though you make a foam board with a festive theme, that doesn’t mean you need to use all kinds of decorations. You still need to consider the use of available space for optimal use. In addition, the placement of decorations should not cover the information itself. When you design, make sure to use set the mode to CMYK and resolution of a minimum of 300 DPI. 

5. Use the Right Size 

There are various sizes that you can use for the foam board. The sizes that are usually made such as A0, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 size. It is tailored to your needs. If you are going to place your foam board in public spaces, then you may need a larger size. Likewise, if you are about to use it indoor, then you need to choose a medium size foam board so that the room is not cramped. 

6. You Know Where and When to Put It Once It’s Ready 

Placement of the foam board is a very important last step. The right and strategic placement will optimize the information to be delivered to many people. Consider placing it in a public place where there will be a lot of people mobilized. Certain building offices, city centres, and shopping malls are good options.
