Bay Cities, one of North America’s most innovative packaging and design companies, has announced the addition of Mako-Board, a 100% recyclable, paper-based, water-resistant, outdoor-rated material for signage. This addition expands the robust material offerings and echoes Bay Cities’ continued innovation through cutting-edge industry advancements.
As a leading creative packaging and display partner to brand marketers, retailers, and e-commerce companies for over 60 years, Bay Cities continues to expand into new products, materials, services, and technology to meet the needs of its customers. Mako-Board is an environmentally-friendly alternative to foamboard, plastic, and materials with polyethylene (PE) coating. The paper-based board is water resistant up to 12 weeks and works in the outdoors and within indoor retail environments that accumulate moisture or are humid.
Mako-Board is a sustainable replacement for temporary signage, which has been dominated until now by plastic substrates due to weather durability issues. It has a high resistance to tearing and supports an exceptional print quality. This Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified product can be recycled up to eight times.
“Mako-Board is a groundbreaking development and delivers on sustainability and performance. We are excited to be at the forefront of a viable alternative to plastic and PE-coated outdoor signage products. The addition of Mako-Board combines multiple benefits and will have a significant positive impact for our customers,” says Nanneke Dinklo, senior director, marketing & branding of Bay Cities.
The addition reflects the growth of the company as a signage supplier and enhances the configurations for POP displays available in the market.
