What is chipboard?

Chipboard (otherwise known as “cardboard”) is a stiff and heavy duty kind of paper. It usually comes in two types: corrugated and non corrugated.

Chipboard has various uses, depending on the type. It has varying densities and is efficient and convenient to use. It’s affordable and a “greener” alternative to other materials.

Chipboard comes with many advantages and can be used for a variety of projects — from making your own board game to a scrapbooking hobby. Here are some uses for chipboard:

  1. Storage – Chipboard is often used for boxes. One of the best things about cardboard is that it can be recycled again and again without losing its strength.
  2. Scrapbooking – Chipboard is popular amongst scrapbook enthusiasts. It is easy to paint, pin designs to, and cover with patterned paper. Chipboard is light and easy to carry around; it is also useful for binders and frames.
  3. Packaging – Most companies use chipboard for packaging due to its light feel and eco-friendly advantages. You can find chipboard used as packaging in the food industry. It can be easily customized, making it preferable to other materials for many manufacturers.
