Metsä Board


Clean, stiff, and made under the highest environmental standards—while it sounds like we’re talking about the perfect organic red wine, we’re actually talking about paperboard. With more cartons per ton made through lightweighting, Pro FBB Bright is the cost-effective, better-for-the-environment option that won’t give you a hangover. Unless you’re a lightweight, in which case — we can’t help you there.

Luxury quality and made from virgin fiber, Prime FBB Bright is the cashmere of paperboards. It’s thick enough to keep you warm in the winter (er, perfect for commercial printing) and with excellent lightweighting—you can even rock it on a summer night. Um, we mean, you get more for your cash…mere.

When you want your packaging to make an impression, while maintaining your commitment to minimal environmental impact, Metsä Board is there for you. This is the paperboard you need for everything from gorgeous makeup packaging to irresistible food packaging.

Metsä Board is available as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified upon request. An FSC Certification label means that a product either contains material from FSC-certified forests, FCC-managed wood, and/or recycled materials, depending on the specific label.

At Metsä Group’s Excellence Center in Äänekoski, Finland, Metsä develops innovations in sustainable paperboard and packaging solutions. Their customers can also benefit from virtual collaboration with the Center with its co-creation workshops.

When you purchase Metsä Board, you also get Metsä Board 360 Services, which means that the mill’s product experts will help you with everything from sustainability to package design. This means you get support both from Case Paper and from Metsä, to make sure your project goes off without a hitch.
