Our A1 5mm White Foam Board is by far our Best Seller!
Foam board is robust, strong, CFC free and rigid, while also being amazingly lightweight. Ideal for modelling, picture backing and mounting images. This type of board is not suitable for outdoor purposes as it is paper based and will not stand up to the elements. Available in a variety of sizes all at guaranteed low prices

Tips for using Foam Board
Foam board can be cut using a good sharp blade (either Swann Morton or Stanley Knife). It's very important to use a sharp blade as a blunt blade will not create a clean cut and will leave a feathered edge. For modelling, you may find the Foamwerks cutting products useful, with their cutting ruler and various cutters, perfect for different types of finishes and applications.
The best glue we would recommend for model making is the Foam 2 Foam glue as this will not melt the structure of the foam board and sets very quickly. A good tip is to glue the edges and use pins to secure these while it dries.
Store boxes/sheets of foam board flat to ensure they don't bow. Keep in an area where the temperature doesn't fluctuate as this can also make boards lose their shape.
