PVC Signs

Expanded PVC (polyvinyl chloride), also known as foam PVC, Trovicel® and Sintra®, helps you project a high-quality, professional image. Medium-weight and durable, expanded PVC can be installed and transported easily and is great for long-term indoor or short-term outdoor use. It is available in a variety of colours, and its matte finish reduces glare, hides fingerprints and can be cut easily into shapes, so you can create custom applications.

PVC Sign Ideas

Increase the effectiveness of your PVC signs by:

  • Adding striping and/or borders
  • Using bent easels
  • Adding lettering colours
  • Using a logo
  • Incorporating a graphic symbol
  • Cutting into unusual shapes or designs


PVC signs may be displayed in several ways:

  • Self-supporting (bent easel)
  • Hanging
  • Applying suction cups
  • Using double-sided tape or Velcro®
  • Framing


  • Do not leave PVC signs inside your car. Expanded PVC tends to warp when exposed to heat or sunlight for extended periods of time
  • Install PVC in sheltered, low-humidity areas when possible. It may absorb moisture and mildew when left in exposed outdoor locations
  • Without proper handling, PVC can be scratched

Sign products and materials may vary by location. Contact your local SIGNWAVE® centre for more information on product availability.
