Laser cut chipboard is a simple, versatile material that lends itself to all kinds of applications, from artwork to home improvement. Chipboard is easy to work with, making it an accessible material for makers, engineers, and designers of any skill level.
One of laser cut chipboard’s greatest assets is that it’s completely green. Made entirely from recycled pasteboard, our chipboard is 100% recyclable.
For all its uses and values, we recommend chipboard above most other materials for parts and product prototyping. Chipboard parts can be fastened together with just glue, and are easy to bend by hand. In addition to its workability, chipboard is also very affordable even in small part quantities. These values make it ideal for prototyping while staying well within your time constraints and budget.
Let us help bring your best products and parts to life with laser cut chipboard prototypes!
We cut our chipboard using our CO2 laser cutters, bringing speed, accuracy, and affordability to every kind of chipboard project. And there are many! Chipboard lends itself to versatility in dozens of disciplines. The thickest and densest chipboards are used in countertops, furniture, and protective floor boards. The thinnest and most malleable chipboards are used in crafting, book covers, and even business cards.
