Types of Board
We source a huge range of carton board from some of the best mills, this means you can be sure of receiving high-quality product, whichever material you choose.
Our boards come in thicknesses up to 750 microns (0.75mm).
Folding boxboard is one of the most versatile types of board – it can be finished in several ways, with printing and other cosmetic touches to add value to your product. These include embossing, varnishing and foil blocking. The board itself is quite stiff – perfect for folding and gluing, it can have windows added to show off your product.
Folding boxboard is made from several different layers of wood pulp, with the top and bottom layers produced to give a smooth finish. The front is usually white, while the back layer is cream or white.
This solid board can be used for a wide variety of products, including food, tea and coffee, cosmetics, toys and other retail items.
Grease Resistant Board
This is a type of folding boxboard that’s specially treated to resist grease and stop it penetrating through the packaging. This is perfect for chilled and frozen foods that are oily or greasy, such as cakes, pastries or biscuits. It can be printed or varnished on the coated side just like regular folding boxboard.
This is a high-end product that ‘demands’ attention!
Consider using a foil board as a base for the packaging. This range of materials includes mirror-like, iridescent, rainbow, holographic, sparkly and coloured metallic finishes ‘wow’. They can all be coated to allow them to be printed like normal board. These can achieve amazing results.
Solid Kraft Board
This type of board is made from 100% virgin unbleached fibre and isn’t coated, giving it a natural brown appearance ‘stunning’ raw material with a true environmental nature. It’s a sustainable product that gives a lot of strength without using much wood fibre. That also means it’s relatively light.
Kraft board can be used for dry, non-fatty foods and a wide range of retail products as well as DIY and gardening items, gift boxes and mailing envelopes. It’s also 100% recyclable and a great choice if you want to give a natural, environmentally-friendly look to your product. One side of the board has a smoother finish than the other and is suitable for printing.
Natural Coated Kraft Board
This is a coated version of Kraft board, with a smooth, white top surface. This makes it suitable for a wide range of printing techniques, retaining the high level of strength and tear resistance of the Kraft board base. This is brilliant for relatively heavy products like bottled drinks or DIY equipment.
White Lined Chipboard
This type of board is made from 80 to 100% recycled fibre and is a good choice if you want an environmentally-friendly product. The top is coated so it’s white, with the reverse being grey. White lined chipboard is often used for cereal and shoe boxes, toiletries and other household goods. It can be printed to a high standard, and is suitable for embossing, foil blocking and window patching. It is not suitable for direct contact with food.
Unlined Chipboard/Grey board
Unlined chipboard is silver-grey in colour and made from recycled fibre. It’s reasonably strong and provides great value for money, with a raw, unfinished surface.
This material is often used for the back board in refill pads of paper or board-backed envelopes, but has a whole range of uses, including food packaging where the board will not be in direct contact with the product, house and garden products and outer cartons.
