What is it made of?
The product is called Pop-board Premium. It's designed for heavy-duty mounting and large format display purposes. What makes it different from other foam core products is that It's moisture resistant, bend resistant and super flat.
Here is a photo of the board with all the layers. Personally, I am quite impressed by all these materials get compressed so neatly into a thin 5mm material.
How durable is it? Is it archival quality?
The board does not offer archival quality. So please expect the print colour will start fading in 10-30 years' time.
Having said this, since most of our customers will be ordering using digital files, we believe the cost and the ease-to-use outweigh the longevity issue.
How heavy is it? How do I hang it?
The sleek board is super lightweight. The 40x60cm one weights about 150g. The board comes with a set of hangers on the back so you can either put it on with a nail or use the 3M removable commando hooks.
This is getting too technical. Got any cool pictures?
You bet! Check out this one.
It's a panoramic sleek board by Janet again. (Yes, we do offer panoramic sizes on sleek board. This one is 8x24" or 20x60cm. )
According to Janet, "They are the last progeny of “Cecil” the lion that was killed by that American dentist in 2015. Their mothers have found new a new boyfriend and this group stick together. "
So that's all the questions answered. If you have anything else you want to know, please hit reply and type away. We are listening.
PS. A big thank you to Janet for allowing us to use her images. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org if any of you are interested in her work.
