What is Chipboard and How Can I Use It?

Chipboard paper, also known as paperboard, is a versatile type of material that is made from 100% recycled paper. The recycled paper is processed, formed into layers and glued together to form a firm, smooth sheet. These durable sheets come in a variety of densities/thicknesses that are suitable for many different purposes such as crafting, scrapbooking, industrial uses, commercial uses and of course packaging and shipping!

Chipboard & Packaging

Despite the fact that corrugated cardboard is one of the most popular shipping materials in the world, it is not always necessary. Many items being shipped don’t need the full protection from a cardboard box but are still in need of support during the shipping process. This is where chipboard can come in handy.

Chipboard, unlike corrugated cardboard, is not hollow so it is overall thinner in comparison. However, chipboard can still be made into boxes, cartons and sheets of different sizes and strengths. Depending on the products that your business ships or packages, chipboard solutions can save you money, time and space while still providing the support and protection that your item needs. Take a look below at some of the different types of chipboard products available at The Packaging Company.

Chipboard apparel boxes are the perfect way to keep your clothing and other retail items folded and protected during the shipping process. These apparel boxes are available in a variety of sizes suitable for everything from kids’ clothes to bulky adult sweaters. Furthermore, they ship/store flat and are easily folded together in just a few seconds, without the need for glue or tape.
