General Edge Board Information

Edge Board

Edge board is also known as edge protectors, corner board, cornerboard, v-board, cargo edge protectors, etc. Edge board used in conjunction with strapping or stretch film, helps create a tight, secure cube to contain your product and prevent damage from shifting during shipping, handling and storage.


Our edge board is manufactured in the USA by laminating multiple plys of 100% recycled paper together to form a rigid right angle. It is reusable, 100% recyclable or can be disposed of safely.

  • Edge board is available in plain with white outer layer, all kraft (no white), or printed with a standard or custom message.
  • Edge Protection, in order to  protect container edges from strapping and rough handling.
  • Stacking Strength, which is vertical reinforcement enables product to be stacked higher, saving on shipping cost and warehouse space.
  • Interior Strength, which reinforces strength of folding boxes when added to inside corners.

In General: edge board, properly used in conjunction with strapping or stretch film, helps create a tight, secure shipping cube. This reduces shipping damage and increases customer satisfaction.
