A coated sheet might be better for you.

High-performance, functional, and decorative color coatings make for the best corrugated sheets, boxes, and bulk bins.

Coated containerboard or paper is inherently a better product. Customers choose coating for the improved protection, durability, and strength over the standard paperboard product of similar weight. If quality and performance will be put to the test, this is a great option to consider for your packaging needs.

Coatings also lend a smooth and even surface for printing, resulting in higher-quality images and better color reproduction to enhance the appearance of your or your customer’s products.
