So, what exactly is chipboard? Chipboard is cardboard or paperboard and is a thick paper of pressed fibers. The material can be made in a variety of grades from very thin to very thick to create different products. Chipboard is always heavier than cardstock and is popularly used for scrapbooking, cardmaking, rubber stamp projects and more.
What is chipboard exactly?
It’s a non-corrugated cardboard made up of recycled paper; you can cut it, ink it, glue it, stamp it, paint it and create whatever else that you’d like with it. It’s really versatile! It's also acid free, lignon free, and archival.
What does 50-point mean?
The chipboard is 0.050 inches thick. To clarify, it’s about as thick as a penny. It’s still bendable but may take a few times to cut completely through. It’s considered an extra heavy chipboard.

A great question from one of our customers:
Q: “I would like to know the ease of cutting, punching or otherwise altering the size and shape of the different weights of chipboard. Can I easily cut and punch holes in "Heavy" chipboard with a typical craft knife and a good ruler and/or a simple hand punch? How about 1x Heavy and 2x Heavy?” – Alchemyart
A: “I have not received this product yet, so I cannot answer the question about cutting it. However, I do know that the best way to punch heavy-weight cardboard or chipboard is with a product called a “crop-a-dile”. It will even punch a hole I in leather (which I have done many times with my husband’s belts). I ordered just one sheet of several sizes of the new heavy chipboard to see how to work with it. Hope this helps.” – Holly Hatch
What our customers are saying about the 8.5” x 11” Black Chipboard:
“I bought two single sheets of each color and sizes because I wanted to check the quality and thickness. I am very satisfied and have placed an additional order of the black thick. The 12 x 12 and the 8.5 x 11 are manageable sizes and the chipboard is very good quality. This will be my go-to for book and album covers going forward. Great product.” – ramey549
