We start this week with a fresh surge of inspiration from paper - Cardboard!

Commonly called cardboard by non-specialists, what we really meant is corrugated fiberboard. Corrugated board is a paper-based construction material consisting of a layer of fluted corrugated sheet sandwiched between one or two flat linerboards.

It is widely used in the manufacture of corrugated boxes and shipping containers. The corrugated medium and linerboard are made of paperboard, a paper-like material usually over 0.25mm thick.

We like the raw industrial feel of the material, although modern cutting methods and laser precision has been used to produced a whole range of amazing designs. Flat-packed, eco-friendly, low-cost, deployable, are some of the many features of this material that is played up in designs.

I often find this kind of cardboard for packaging. Can also it use for another function? What is the advantage of the cardboard?

I don't think that I have used this kind of cardboard. With all he features offered by this cardboard, I think this will be a favorable option in the future....
