Here at d3, we create temporary displays for products of all types for all industries. Some of the most common materials we use for these displays are cardboard and corrugated cardboard. So, what’s the difference between the two? If you’re like most people and think they’re nearly the same thing, here’s why they’re different.
Simply put, cardboard refers to a thicker stock of paper. In most cases, people refer to cardboard as anything made from a base of paper. When you think about cardboard, you probably picture the material used for shipping boxes. We often use this material for our POP displays, but any paper-based product counts.
Corrugated cardboard is simply a more specific type of cardboard. The corrugated materials we use are made up of at least three or more layers of stronger paper. The middle is fluted and runs in between and outside and inside liner. Corrugated materials feature a rippled shape that offers strength and often provides more durability than traditional cardboard.
Even though corrugated cardboard is stronger than traditional cardboard, both serve specific purposes when it comes to temporary displays. When we approach your display creation project, we’ll help you determine if cardboard, corrugated cardboard, or another material will work best for your temporary displays.
