What is Chipboard?

by Tim Spicer October 14, 2019

chipboard folding cartons

The best way to describe a chipboard box is to think of a box of cereal.  They are different than corrugated shipping boxes since chipboard boxes do not have fluting inside the walls of the box. They instead are made from lightweight but sturdy paperboard. Although they are not designed to be an exterior shipping box, chipboard cartons are actually used for a variety of applications including packaging small parts, electronic components as well as retail packaging for small items such as bars of soap or ointments.

Chipboard boxes (sometimes referred to as folding cartons) are thin and lightweight, and most commonly available in brown or white.  The thin, lightweight paperboard construction allows the box to easily fit inside of your outer shipping box without taking up too much space or adding any unnecessary weight to your package. Since chipboard boxes ship and store flat, you won't have to worry about exorbitant shipping cost or storage space. Once you are ready to package your items, the box simply folds and tucks into place, no tape necessary. The great thing about these boxes is they come in a wide array of sizes, making it easy to find a size that fits your need. If you have a tightly packaged product and you need a small box to place your bolts, screws or power cord you can find a size that fits. When your customer opens the product they will definitely be impressed with the professional and finished look.

This chipboard material is also used to manufacture rigid stayflat envelopes which are ideal for mailing important paperwork, documents or flat items.  If an item needs to be protected from bending, this is the perfect mailer. 

Feel free to contact us for custom printing on any of these chipboard packaging products to create a professional custom package.
