Preston Board & Packaging Ltd offer a wide range of paperboard sheets and packaging to suit all your business or personal needs.

Paperboard is a fantastic material which is far more versatile than comparable materials, as there are different types, grades, and finishes available depending on what you’re looking for. It is produced in a single or multi-layer construction on our specialist machine, which means that it is thicker and stronger than standard paper. One of the best things about paperboard material is that it is completely sustainable, as it can be made from recycled waste paper or from trees grown in sustainable environments. It is also recyclable itself, allowing you to continue the environmentally-friendly cycle, even if there is a design printed on it.

The way that you use paperboard is as versatile as the material itself, as it is easy to die cut, crease, or glue it into whatever configuration you need. It can also be easily laminated if you want a bit more strength in your material, especially if you’re manufacturing something which is large and durable.

Here at Preston Board and Packaging Ltd we offer lots of different grades and types of paperboard, from basic yet versatile unlined chipboards or greyboards to paper lined boards. We also manufacture and supply brown lined boards, white lined chipboard, and Kraft lined chipboard, as well as products which are lined with plastics such as polythene, polyester, or silicon. The Kraft and white lined boards are available in both a one or two-sided format, to perfectly suit your bespoke requirements.

Types of Paperboard

The type of product you will need is entirely dependent on what you want to do with it. The thinner types are perfect for making point of sale materials, including boxes and trays. Thin paperboard is also a good material to be used as packaging for food and other consumable items – from cereal boxes to juice cartons. Thicker paperboard is a durable material that is good for not only building furniture but also creating more heavy-duty point of sale materials such as bins.

Paperboard Packaging Material

Paperboard is a paper based material which is generally thicker than paper. It is produced in a single or multi wet layer construction formed on specialist machines. It can be produced from either trees grown in managed sustainable forests or from recycled waste paper. Thicker products can be produced by laminating pliers together using PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate) water based glue. Being available in different grades, white and brown finishes, it has versatility that other materials lack.

Paper board can be printed using all modern day techniques and it is easily die cut, creased and glued. Whether printed or plain, it is fully recyclable making it the choice for the environment.


In thinner form, paperboard has many uses such as point of sale material, transit boxes and trays, layer cards to name but a few. Where more strength and rigidity is required, laminated paperboard can be used. Examples of this would be in the manufacture of beds and furniture or for dump bins for point of sale advertising.
