Overboard uses base materials; Grey and Fluted board.
Greyboard is smooth, perfectly flat, made from 100% post-consumer waste and is the primary component material of our bespoke ring, binders, folders and presentation box range.
Flute Board is merely a twin wall profile extrusion, connected by a series of vertical ribs, providing a semi-rigid board with high impact properties and excellent strength to weight ratio. Incredibly versatile and recyclable.
We wrap papers or vinyl over Grey board and just papers over the fluted board.
Paper – a print process is applied to flat sheets of paper and laminated. That paper is glued to flat sheets of Greyboard, which is then die cut and creased to form the product. While not as durable as vinyl, paper over board offers more in terms of print process and finish, as well as being a greener substrate for your presentation products.
Display & Covering Paper
The display paper world is hugely creative and aids us in our quest for the visual excellence we strive for. Papers are perfect if the look needs to be contemporary but also nods to the classics. Its diversity rarely catches us out.
We use paper from the UK’s most established mills and wholesalers to cover and manufacture presentation stationery, premium packaging and in-store marketing display pieces.
We use High-Frequency welding to weld vinyl across pre-cut Greyboard pieces that make up the front cover, back cover and spine. The tooling uses a short, efficient burst of high frequency to weld around the periphery of the product and form spine creases. Vinyl’s characteristics are durability & fully recyclable.
We have colour swatches of over 60 colours; vinyl is printed with screen, digital, litho and metallic foil print process.
Paper over Flute
Paper over Flute is the process when we wrap silk screened, litho or digitally printed papers over fluted board and then die-cut into cartons, boxes and point of sale displays.
Flute board is the process that is a step up from paper over board with popular applications include subscription boxes, single product packaging, counter displays and in-store marketing.
Flute comes in five types or `profiles’ essentially different strengths to suit the intended application and weight of products to be held.
