“We recognise the importance of coming up with something new and we have just launched a new two sided brown kraft board called FoldKraft. It’s natural organic appearance combined with its ‘snap’ offers publishers something different to the standard white card. Having this in our portfolio, alongside our Carte Lumina, Cyber XL Pac and Opus White, makes us the number one choice for coated and uncoated board.” 

EBB Board is sponsoring The Henries for the first time this year. It is the official sponsor of Best Handmade or Hand-Finished Range category.
