After taking our first steps forward into becoming greener as a business, we would like to introduce our new sustainable signage materials. Both products are available to order now, you can either get a quote by clicking here or carry on reading to find out more.

EcoBoard

Ecoboard is our new biodegradable, organic and chemical-free alternative to traditional corflute and plastic products.  Being biodegradable means it can be broken down rapidly by microorganisms and therefore, doesn’t stay in our environment for thousands of years like other materials. 

The product is very simply a wood pulp core with a high-quality paper lining. It’s high white surface provides an outstanding print surface, lending itself to demanding images and designs. We recommend it for its stable core, dual side printability and smooth printing.

Due to its biodegradable nature, it’s not quite as durable as traditional corflute. We recommend it as a great short-term material for outdoor signage solutions and projects. However, it can last up to twelve months for indoor applications, such as advertising boards, POS display stands and decorations.

The signage industry can be wasteful. That’s why we are making it easy to feel good about using Ecoboard signage. It’s 100% recyclable and can go straight in the green recycling bin, it’s that simple.
