Types of Sintra Signs

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.

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.
