The Quondam Tree
Jesse Price of the Quondam Tree utilized our EPS foam to protect his sculpture for shipping. With patient precision and a hot knife he created a “pocket” within the foam (two 18″ x 48″ x 96″ pcs of 1# EPS) in which his wooden sculpture could snugly sit. This assured him the proper protection he was looking for during transportation of his sculpture to New York City. And it was another success story for EPS! We are so pleased our foam could be a part of this journey. Best of luck to Jesse and his amazing work!

ICA Front Sign
We followed the journey of our sign as it was created by Peachtree City Foamcraft in Schnecksville, PA. The process starts with EPS blocks, 36″ x 48″ x 96″.
