Corrugated cardboard is composed of a flat, thick liner layers of paper adhered to alternating fluted layers.

Because of its paper surface, corrugated cardboard can easily receive direct image and letter printing from silk screening, flexography and lithography.
The design of corrugated cardboard also makes it able to absorb impact and resist damage from accidental drops. It is designed for stacking and storing products to protect them from damage.
