Preston Board & Packaging Ltd manufacture a range of large display board solutions.

How do your customers see you?

Large display board products 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 are no longer there.

Large Boards to Stand Out

Imagine arriving at your local supermarket to find the products you want have switched shelves, but the large boards haven’t been updated. Quite often, this results in frustration and a certain amount of time gone to waste. However, if signs are not large enough or clearly visible in the place they should be in, it can potentially be a far more serious situation. Examples of where a large display board would be needed or relied upon for information include medical centres, hospitals and other Healthcare centres where you would often see large bulletin boards and jumbo display boards.

Large display board products from Preston Board and Packaging Ltd:

Good for you, good for your customers and great for the environment!

At Preston Board and Packaging, you can rely on our technical expertise and experience. We understand the needs of companies and their customers for products that are large enough, with good visibility and 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 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 large images and print.

XL Display Boards

If you would 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 regular display boards plus even more display area, up to 2000mm by 3200mm.

And there’s more!

The great bonus of our range of large board products 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.

Large 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.
