These new packaging boards are available in a wide variety of custom colors, including custom color duplex solutions, a wide variety of embossed patterns and are all FSC® certified (FSC-C020981), made in the USA, and include recycled content. Available in three calipers (12pt, 18pt and 26pt), these premium and luxury boards are strong and durable while providing a stylish, refined alternative to white SBS.

With superior scoring, folding and gluing properties and excellent resistance to cracking and scuffing, these performance boards are not only ideal for folding carton applications but are also well-suited for complimentary branding projects such as hang tags, special event invitations and other corporate collateral materials.
