Frequently Asked Questions


How big can you go?

There is no limit! Our biggest projects are made in pieces, sometimes assembled on-site. We have several methods of joining pieces depending on the next step.

How long do pieces last?

If you’re after a long-lasting durable display, consider hardcoat or fiberglass. Both will last more than 10 years.

Bare foam and Face-Only pieces are displayed where the public doesn’t interact with them, or they can be damaged.

What is the material used?

We use a variety of materials from lightweight to heavy. Most displays have an EPS foam core. Other materials we use are HDU or PU foam board, MDF, MDO, signboard, modeling board, and styling board. Contact us if you want to explore other options.

Can I use my own custom designs?

What is guaranteed?

Made right, or we’ll make it right.  Our process clearly defines the part you’ll be getting: the size, shape, surface finish, durability, framing, etc. If it shows up broken, damaged, a different color, or anything else, we will work with you to correct it at no cost.
