Board refers to a thick, rigid material that is more substantial than paper.

When referring to woodfree coated paper, the weight at which paper becomes board is typically 200 GSM.

Used extensively for printed materials that require durability and structural stability, board types can range from cardboard, corrugated board, to Foamex Boards.

The choice of board can significantly affect the appearance and feel of the final printed product.

Variables such as thickness, finish, and colour can be customised according to the specific requirements of a print job, making board a versatile material for various applications, including Business Cards, Book covers, and packaging.
