Custom Signs


Custom signs bring the individual’s unique vision to life by delivering the right aesthetic — on-time and within budget. Headed by award-winning Miami art directors Jerry Blohm and Graylan Franklin, 3D Foam Carving & Fabrication have spent more than 32 years creating custom signs for household names like Fox, Columbia, Warner Brothers, Paramount, McDonalds, Home Depot, Miller Lite, Volkswagen, and many more.


We primarily service the motion picture industry with props, set backdrops, and custom signage, but we can make custom signs for anyone wanting to make a BIG impression. Foam can be used to construct props, create replicas, model sculptures, advertise, or develop a completely new environment.

Why Work with Foam Board to Create Foam Signs?


Custom signs can be fabricated from plastic, metal, wood, acrylic, vinyl, or foam board. We specialize in foam signs because we feel 3D printing offers customers the most bang for their buck. Advantages of foam board include:

  • Attractive Design – Whether illuminated or not, you can’t miss our signs!
  • Durable – Foam 3D signs last longer and retains full aesthetic value compared to wood and other materials.
  • Strength – The type of foam we use is more resistant to scratches and dents than paper and cardboard.
  • Lightweight – Foam board is extremely easy to transport, yet rigid enough to stand on its own.
  • Affordable – 3D printed foam is among the most inexpensive ways to create film set backdrops and signage.
  • Versatile – We can fabricate any shape, size, or design imaginable, with hard-coating for indoor or outdoor use.
  • Fast – The “difficult” is ready now (7-14 days), while the “impossible” takes a little longer (up to 4-6 weeks.

We combine our design and building expertise with the client creativity to produce one-of-a-kind products made to exact specifications. Foam printing and carving is unrivaled when it comes to lightweight durability, easy installation, and convenient transport. Clients are able to go bigger with foam sculpting, without cost or cumbersome setup.
