Digital printing has been in use since 1993, and as the Internet has grown, so has the use of digital printing spread along with it. The commercial printing industry grew by about 1.7% in 2018 and similar numbers are expected for 2019. Digital commercial printing can be applied to printed cardboard boxes and materials made out of corrugated cardboard, just to name a few examples. In fact there are many uses for printed cardboard products, and this article will take a look at a few of those uses.
- Signage Displays: One use for printed cardboard products is as a part of signage displays. These are cardboard displays that can be used to display and advertise a number of products. A minor example of signage display can be found in cardboard standees, but most of the time the signage displays being referred to are large cardboard displays being used to display a variety of products. Signage displays can be printed in a variety of designs and colors, and can advertise just about anything. Signage displays can also come in a variety of sizes, though it should be noted that corrugated cardboard is typically only used for larger displays that require stronger products to last longer.
- Large Packaging for e-Commerce: Another use for printed cardboard products is as large packaging for e-commerce. As with many things connected to the Internet, e-commerce has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and printed packaging has equally grown to meet the increasing demand. With the help of digital printing, large packaging for e-commerce can be printed to fit just about any need, especially when larger pieces of packaging are required.
- Commercial Graphics and Signage: And finally, a third use for printed cardboard products is as commercial graphics and signage. This use is similar to signage displays, though instead of merely being placed up on a wall to advertise a product, commercial graphics printed on cardboard can be used in a number of ways and in a number of places.
In conclusion, there are many different uses for printed cardboard products. These uses include, but are far from limited to: being used as signage displays, being used as large packaging for e-commerce, and being used for commercial graphics and signage. It should be emphasized that these are just a few of the uses for printed cardboard products.
