Printing on Cardboard

Printing on cardboard doesn’t just consist of printing on box materials for packaging and delivery items, there is also another layer to this versatile material that includes arts and crafts printing, printing on cardboard for displays, and printing onto heavy-duty corrugated sheet materials for signs and promotions, and other uses. Cardboard can be organized into different thicknesses and corresponding uses. From kraftboard, to fluted cardboard of different weights, to high-end honeycomb and “falconboards” for sign and display purposes, there many different cardboard print applications that we’re showcasing in the following examples.
