Selecting the Best Paper Board and Materials for Folding Carton Box Manufacturing

When it comes to crafting high quality folding carton boxes, choosing the right paper board is an essential starting point. At McLaughlin Paper Company, we understand the pivotal role that materials play in the packaging industry. That's why we're proud to offer an extensive range of paper boards, including some specialty options that can elevate your folding carton packaging game to new levels of luxury and quality.

Diversity in the Folding Carton Industry

The folding carton industry is a vast and dynamic packaging sector that caters to a multitude of products. From cosmetics to confectionery, pharmaceuticals to consumer electronics, folding carton boxes are the unsung heroes of modern day packaging. They not only protect the contents within but also serve as a canvas for brand identity, storytelling and attracting end consumers.

At McLaughlin Paper Company, we've been fortunate to partner with various manufacturers in this industry. We supply many folding carton manufacturers with high-quality paper boards, and also take great pride in offering specialty materials that many manufacturers have trouble finding elsewhere. Let's dive into some of these exceptional options.

Fully Black, Beater Die Board

One of our standout specialty items is the fully black, beater die board made from 100% recycled material. This isn't just your run-of-the-mill black board; it's black throughout, not merely printed on the surface of a chipboard or SBS substrate. This unique feature ensures that your folding carton boxes exude an air of sophistication and elegance that's impossible to match.

Black paper boards are a popular choice for luxury packaging and premium brands. They create a striking contrast against gold or silver printing, foil stamping and embossing, making your packaging pop with eye-catching details. Whether you're packaging high-end cosmetics, artisanal chocolates, or designer apparel, our fully black, beater die board is a choice that speaks volumes about your commitment to quality.

Duplex Board: A Symphony of Colors

Another remarkable offering in our portfolio is the Duplex Board, a true testament to the artistry of papermaking. This board features two different colors, one on each side; it's not a result of lamination, but rather crafted in single sheets directly on the paper machine. This means that the colors are seamlessly integrated, ensuring a harmonious, consistent and quality appearance.

The Duplex Board is a game-changer for brands looking to make a bold statement with their packaging. It offers the flexibility of having two distinct colors on a single board, allowing for creative and visually engaging designs. Whether you want to showcase your brand's two primary colors or create a captivating contrast, this specialty material offers endless possibilities.

Elevating Luxury with High-Quality Materials

While traditional white SBS board and chipboard our cost effective and widely available, McLaughlin Paper Company’s specialty materials take luxury packaging to a whole new level. Top brands demand materials that not only reflect their commitment to excellence but also convey a sense of opulence and exclusivity. That's precisely what you get with our fully black beater die board and Duplex Board.

These materials not only look luxurious but also feel premium to the touch. They provide the perfect backdrop for intricate printing techniques, such as embossing, debossing, and foil stamping, ensuring that your folding carton boxes make a lasting impression on your customers.

A Variety of Calipers to Suit Your Needs

In the world of paperboard, caliper is a crucial factor to consider. It determines the thickness and sturdiness of the board, which, in turn, affects the durability and protection it offers to the packaged products. At McLaughlin Paper Company, we understand that different projects require different calipers.

That's why we offer a range of calipers, starting from .12 and going up to at least .30. This wide selection ensures that you can find the perfect thickness for your folding carton boxes, whether you're packaging delicate jewelry or robust electronics. We believe that customization is key, and our diverse range of calipers allows you to tailor your packaging solutions to your specific needs.

Sustainability at the Core

While we're passionate about providing the best materials for your packaging needs, we're equally committed to environmental responsibility. Our fully black, beater die board, and Duplex Board are both made from 100% recycled material, showcasing our dedication to sustainable practices.

Using recycled materials not only reduces waste but also conserves valuable resources and energy. It's a choice that not only benefits your brand's image but also aligns with the growing demand for eco-friendly packaging solutions.
