Large display boards from Preston Board

How do your customers see you?

Large display boards are one of the best ways to keep your customers informed. In fact, they are such a fundamental part of communicating, especially in retail, that we take them for granted – until they’re not there.

Signs for the times.

Arriving at your local supermarket to find the products you want have switched shelves, but the signs haven’t been updated, results in an irritating waste of time. However, if signs are not clearly visible in the place they should be in a medical centre, for instance, it’s potentially a far more serious situation.

Rely on our technical expertise and experience.

At Preston Board and Packaging, we understand the needs of companies and their customers for large display boards with good visibility that don’t compromise on sturdiness or durability. We also look after every aspect of the technical side. With 2 to 4 plies of material in our XL display boards, the outer plies accept a range of printing services including screen, digital, offset litho and flexographic. Our large display boards can be die cut, drilled and glued to create maximum visual impact. The surface can be varnished for even longer lasting use. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that the process results in sharp, captivating colours for images and print.

XL Display Boards

If you’d like even more visual impact, check out our bountiful XL display boards. Our experience means you can concentrate on making sure that your customers and clients have all the additional support they need to find your products and services. Our XL display boards have all the sterling qualities of the large display boards plus even more display area, up to 2000mm by 3200mm.

And there’s more!

The great bonus of our boards is that they are 100% recyclable; and if you choose our grey centre display boards option, you are making a great choice for the environment, too.

Display Board Manufacturing

Display Board is manufactured by glueing together between 2 and 4 plies of material. This produces a finished product up to 2500 micron (2.5mm) in thickness.

Two plies of smooth white lined folding boxboard are used for the outer surfaces. The folding boxboard has a coating weight of 20 gsm (grams per square metre) with medium gloss levels to make it suitable for digital, screen and lithographic print.

The finished display board can have a different coloured middle.

This can be either;

Grey centre by using Unlined greyboard – this is produced using 100% recycled waste paper. No virgin fibre, bleach or chlorine is used in its manufacture


Cream centre by using additional plies of white lined folding boxboard

The various plies are glued together on a specialist reel to sheet laminating machine. This is done by applying PVA (Poly Vinyl Acetate) to the material to form a sandwich which is compressed together.

The glue represents approximately (depending on caliper) 3% of the total product and causes no problems in the recycling process.

The finished material is 100% recyclable and bio degradable.

All our large display boards are manufactured here at Preston Board and can be supplied as FSC Chain of Custody certified.
