REGULAR/STANDARD FOAM BOARDS
Made with a thick inner core (from 1/8″ to 3/16″ thick) with clay coat papers, Framing 4 Yourself’s regular foam boards are one of our most popular options.
These foam boards are perfect for beginner and DIY framers looking to frame easily reproducible art such as posters, digital prints, or open-ended editions.

Designed for any art or photography for which the maintenance of long-term value is a goal, acid-free foam boards conserve and protect your most important works.
SELF-ADHESIVE FOAM BOARDS
Mount with light pressure as our self-adhesive foam board consists of a thick inner core composed of polystyrene with a peel-and-stick surface on one side.
Made from the same material as our regular foam boards, the self-adhesive foam boards are permanent, making them the right choice for easily reproducible artwork (posters, digital prints, open-ended editions, etc.)
BLACK-ON-BLACK FOAM BOARDS
Our black-on-black foam boards feature black surface paper with a black core like regular foam board material. This can also be used as a non-glare backdrop for photo shoots.
Like regular foam board, Framing 4 Yourself’s black-on-black foam board is best used when framing quickly reproducible art such as posters, digital prints, or open-ended additions.
DO I NEED A FOAM BOARD?
Short answer: maybe, depending on the project.
Foam boards are an excellent option for conservation and display purposes. The goal of foam board and mat board is the same: they protect the art and photography you are framing.
