Foam core is the preferable picture framing backing for items being framed that have either a sentimental or financial value. Foam core is manufactured using acid free outer lining papers with a poly styrene (PS) core. Generally in framing it is used in either 3mm or 5mm thickness. Foam core is also used as spacing in custom picture framing where the framer is wanting to create space between elements.
