Be aware the OP question was about LASER printing. Most of the "print on foam" stuff I have seen is using Inkjet.

I would think twice about putting any kind of foam through a laser printer which uses a fairly high heat to fuse the toner to the paper. Might work with some EPP or Depron foams but you might just end up with a Laser Non-printer full of goo.

Be specific in your search and make sure any advice is explicit about using a laser.

I have successfully laser printed on to tissue and that works well if you can keep the wrinkles out.
