Printing on cardboard

Add cardboard to your printing capabilities and give customers a wider range of options.

Take cardboard materials beyond the shipping box, as you use this versatile substrate for displays, signage, promotions, and other unique applications. HP cardboard printers enable you to work without constraints—for more capabilities and more application options that you can pass on to customers. 
HP Latex R-series printers deliver top-quality results on cardboard stock of different weights and thicknesses. 
Flexible water-based HP Latex Inks don’t break or blur, and the whites resist yellowing over time. And it’s easier to grow your sustainability offering with recyclable signage and display options.

Beautify product packaging

Print cardboard packaging that looks so good, it rivals the product inside. HP cardboard printers fold and assemble without cracking thanks to flexible HP Latex water-based ink. Start giving customers more options—all from one shop.

Sustainable signage

Ideal for temporary displays and promotions, you can print to cardboard for great-looking signage that doesn’t crack. HP Latex technology also helps retailers shift to using more sustainable signage as retail displays printed using honeycomb cardboard are recyclable. 


You can also create effective communication boards with HP PageWide XL printers, like the HP PageWide XL Pro 10000 Printer, which is the first HP large-format auto-sheet feeder that includes a versatile stacker and provides simple, intuitive operation. Print on boards from A2 up to B1, and thicknesses up to 10 mm.

Original art and design projects

Help customers take art projects in a fresh and unique direction with quality printing to cardboard stock of varying sizes and thicknesses. HP cardboard printers give your customers more options to innovate—and recycle.
