What Are Sintra Signs?

Similar to foam board and gator board, Sintra board signs offer a more rigid and durable surface for signs that need to withstand wear. Sintra is made from a type of plastic called polyvinyl chloride, also known as PVC. These signs are made by enclosing a layer of foam between two sheets of thin PVC.

The thickness of Sintra is determined by the foam core, which can be increased or decreased without changing the strength. Common choices for thickness are 3mm and 6mm. For sizing, PVC signs can be cut to any size and shape, including custom shapes. With the use of a CNC router for precision cutting, it is possible to cut sharp PVC letters from Sintra board.

PVC signs also have a smooth matte surface that makes them ideal for graphics. Even graphics with extensive text of photo-realism show up clearly on Sintra when printed directly from a digital file.

Alternatively, Sintra board can also be used as a mounting board for existing photos, documents, and artwork. The art or document is affixed to the Sintra with adhesive and the edges of the board are trimmed to match for a straight, precise finish. Depending on the purpose of the sign, there are many convenient options for display and installation including:

  • Hanging – PVC signs can have holes drilled into them so the sign can be hung from the ceiling. Because these signs are lightweight, additional support is not generally needed to hold the sign.

  • Framing – Semi-permanent signs can be framed for additional protection and a more eye-catching look.

  • Velcro or Adhesive – Because of PVC board’s lightweight, Velcro or double sided tape will keep the sign attached to a wall.

  • Easel – Best for small or medium signs, propping a PVC sign on an easel makes for a portable option great for trade shows or conventions.

  • Self-supporting – If they need to stand on their own like table signs, PVC signs can be bent at the bottom to provide them with their own base.

  • Bolts – For permanent signs, Sintra signs can be bolted directly into the wall. We can add drill holes to the sign if needed, and signs can be installed with limited handyman experience.

In terms of customization, Sintra signs offer almost unlimited options. If you have additional ideas, we can work with you to design a sign that meets your needs.

Benefits of Sintra Signs

If you need rigid signs, PVC Sintra signs are one of the better choices available. Companies across all different industries rely on Sintra board because of features such as:


Available in many colors and thicknesses, Sintra can also be cut into any shape and size. It works well for everything from large menu boards to outdoor real estate signs to smaller desktop names signs in offices.

Vibrant Appearance

The smooth, plastic texture of PVC board makes it easier to render graphics than other rigid sign materials, allowing for bright colors and clear lines that will showcase graphics.


Because Sintra board is coated in plastic, it is resistant to water damage, rust, and mold and can be used both indoors and outdoors. PVC signs can also withstand extensive handling and bumps without showing signs of wear.


Unlike foam core and gator board, Sintra is acid-free so it will not deteriorate the materials printed or mounted on the board, making it the material of choice for museums.

Even with all of these benefits, Sintra signs are inexpensively priced relative to other rigid signs. When you also consider their versatility and longevity, Sintra signs are a professional yet cost-effective option for many businesses and display types.

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is Your Return Policy?

Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.

What Signs Are Best For Indoors?

All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.

What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?

There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.

What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?

Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.

How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?

Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.
