Printing onto Cardboard

Printing onto cardboard is a fantastic method to add colour, branding, logos etc. to a simple but strong material.

Cardboard’s eco-friendly properties make it a consumer favourite, too, as it’s so easy to recycle. Corrugated cardboard is available from the paper mill in white or brown. When we print onto cardboard, it can be any colour you like. White cardboard makes colours pop and is ideal for full colour printing and a high-end look.

Brown board though can be stylish and looks great with a strong one or two colour print. Naturally brown board can be printed full colour but we usually recommend white ink under the CMY colours, so that the colours remain vibrant like they appear on screen, but it really depends what look you’re going for.

Printing on Thick Cardboard

Our digital printer is huge and the flat bed measures 3.2m x 2m. So it’s perfect for printing large sheets and thick cardboard sheets up to 50mm, as our print head clearance is 50mm. We use our digital printer for printing on thick cardboard all day, every day – usually for thicknesses between 1.5mm to 7mm. However we also use it for 10mm, 16mm and 18mm thick structural/Falcon/Honeycomb board. We can also screen print and flexo print thick cardboard for a different look.  Furthermore, we cut and crease thick cardboard once it is printed, with a truly customised service, whether you’re looking for packaging or display.

Cardboard Printing and Cutting

As a manufacturer of packaging and point of sale materials, with years of experience, we know cardboard – trust us with your cardboard printing and cutting jobs. We offer a range of corrugated cardboard sheets in stock, of different thicknesses and sizes. For example, we offer F flute, E flute, B flute, C flute, EE flute, EB flute and BC flute corrugated board. We print directly to the board and cut accurately to register with the print. For shorter production runs we use our Zünd cutting table with drag knives and oscillating knives to cut cardboard and crease wheels of varying thicknesses to crease the board and make it fold easily and accurately. For longer production runs we use die cutting, we make a set tool from CAD drawings – it’s a really quick way of cutting multiple copies.
