8 Uses for Chipboard 

8 Unexpected Uses of chipboard in a store

1. Interior packaging for high-end speakers

Speakers (and other sensitive technological equipment) need extra protection in transit. Chipboard helps provide the structural integrity to keep these pieces undamaged. 

2. Bakery boxes

No one wants a cake that ends up on the floor. Bakery boxes are another common chipboard application for a sturdy transport option. Chipboard can also be used for the rounds beneath cakes because they won’t absorb moisture or oil like regular paper. 

3. Tissue boxes 

Chipboard provides a sturdy option for tissue boxes that helps prevent crushing when in transit or stacked on store shelves.

4. Notebooks and office supplies

Ever noticed how sturdy the back of a notebook is? Thank chipboard for that. Notebook backs are a great example of how thin chipboard can be cut and still perform. Chipboard sheets can also be used for scrapbook materials, in picture frames and inside large envelopes.

5. Beer cases

As you may know, a case of beer can weigh upward of 20 lbs (more for glass bottles). Chipboard can stand up to the weight and ensures your favorite brew makes it from the store to the BBQ. 

6. Store displays 

Store point-of-purchase displays are often made of chipboard due to their versatility and stability. It can be die-cut to create a unique shape and packs flat and light for easy shipping. 

7. Structural components for furniture 

Many pieces of furniture use chipboard as their building blocks. The chipboard can add structural integrity and can be covered with solid wood or veneers to achieve the desired look. It can also be used in flooring materials and countertops. 

8. Pizza circles 

Similar to the rounds beneath cakes, chipboard can be used under boxed and frozen pizzas to prevent sogginess and keep the pie in one piece.
