Given their expansive product line and manufacturing capabilities, The Foam Factory is the right choice for creating a promotional product or giveaway. Their ability to produce 15 or 15,000 items quickly, attractively and within your budget means whether you’re a large company planning the marketing mix for a new product or a mom-and-pop business trying to get off the ground, custom foam cutouts can work for you.

Able to manufacture any 2-D shape, The Foam Factory can individualize a product to whatever goal you are working toward. These fun, bold items will be held on to by the recipient, keeping your company and its message in contact with people longer, increasing the cutout’s value with every passing day. The greatest benefit of a custom foam promotional cutout however, is that it also has an impact on those who don’t receive one. A foam sword, foam finger, or oversize hammer, spear or tomahawk at a sporting event is going to be seen by everyone around the individual holding it. Additionally, people may seek out a way to have their own cutout, which further increases your promotion’s exposure. These quality products are made of long-lasting foam, so every time an individual brings your foam cutout to an event or activity, your message reaches a whole new segment of people. This extends the life of your marketing campaign and stretches the value of your dollar.

The Foam Factory features 12 vibrant colors of soft, squishy open-cell foam for customizing your foam cutout. This variety of foam is also used as acoustical foam for sound treatment applications, and has received the highest Class A fire retardancy rating. Additionally, closed-cell cross-linked polyethylene foam (XLPE) is available in seven different colors for uses where a denser, smoother product is desired. And though The Foam Factory doesn’t screen print on the products they manufacture, their mechanical capabilities allow designs, patterns and words to be cut in the product.

In addition to team-themed cutouts at sporting events, The Foam Factory can produce an array of designs in any color foam. In the past they have made cutouts of creatures like dogs, birds, whales, squirrels, horses and crabs, and fun shapes like moons, keys, bones, music notes and lightning bolts.

Besides novelty cutouts, functional products can be designed that give people yet another reason to use them over and over. These include wearable visors and foam hats with patterns and designs, throwing discs and even coasters to keep tables from being scratched. The more enjoyment or use somebody can get out of promotional goods, the longer they will be kept around, increasing company, logo and message exposure. Fun shapes and designs can be produced for finger painting stamps or craft projects, as can soft, flexible numbers and lettering for creative labeling, crafts or other projects. A stadium cushion can also be made, which people will bring anywhere that has hard, cold or wet seating. A carrying handle cutout can also be added to any outdoor cushion or seating cushion to make it even easier to bring along.

In addition to promotional product cutouts, The Foam Factory can also manufacture product prototypes. Affordable, even in short production runs, foam prototypes are the smart way to try out an idea, pitch your product or generate buzz before an official launch. One example of a prototype The Foam Factory has created is a 1/8 inch thick, XLPE foam gas tank cover that protects against scratches and spills, featuring the company’s website cut out inside the foam for immediate recognition. The Foam Factory has no minimum or maximum order, so about 100 were made at the company’s request, enough for them to generate interest and get market feedback without breaking the bank.

The Foam Factory’s ability to produce products efficiently and affordably on both ends of the manufacturing spectrum comes from their versatile fleet of machinery. Computer programmed foam waterjet cutting is able to trace the outline of any shape with a thin, powerful stream of water, making clean cuts along the outer edge or intricate cuts within the form’s interior. With the water generated from a single point, as opposed to saw blades mounted on opposing ends, the waterjet can shut off, reposition, and turn back on to cut designs or words within a product without entering through an outside edge. With only programming and no plates or dies needed, the waterjet cutter is perfect for short-run products at an excellent price.

Mass-production materials can be made through a foam die-cutting process, using plates to create numerous replicas of a design in a single pressing. When many items are needed, multiple designs can be arranged on a single plate and then several plates can be placed on the pressing table. This means that in a single stamping of the die-cutter, hundreds of items can potentially be produced in a few seconds, maximizing materials and minimizing time. Once the stamped items are gathered, a new sheet of foam is placed over the plates and the stamping continues.

The Foam Factory has created custom foam cutouts for schools, small businesses, large businesses, sports teams and even personal projects. With the ability to produce designs in any size, shape or quantity from any type of foam, these products will get your company noticed, fire up the crowd or give your employees a fun reward for all their hard work.
