Cardboard display stands, as an indispensable product display and marketing product in today's society, have a long history. Today, WOW will introduce the development history of Cardboard display stands products.

In fact, human beings have invented paper for 2,000 years. In addition to being an important carrier for transmitting information, paper has a prominent function, that is, packaging.

Cardboard display stands is a packaging material product mainly composed of paper and pulp. The product range includes paper containers such as carton, paper box, paper bag, paper tube and paper can; pulp molded egg tray, industrial packaging liner, paper tray, Paper padding materials such as paper corners or inner packaging materials: corrugated cardboard, honeycomb paperboard, etc.: and paper disposable lunchware such as paper lunch boxes, paper cups, and paper trays. As the basic raw material for paper products, paper and paperboard used exclusively for packaging are also in the category of paper product packaging.

Papermaking began in the Western Han Dynasty, according to "Han Shu. "Dong Cheng Zhao Huang Chuan" records that "there is a wrapped medicine in the basket, Hehu book." Should pay attention to: "Horse, thin paper is also". This is the earliest documentary record of paper in the Western Han Dynasty. Since the papers of the Western Han Dynasty were too rare and used at the time, the use of bamboo was still the main writing tool at that time, so it is obvious that the paper at that time could not be used as a packaging material in large quantities. Until the first year of the Eastern Han Dynasty (105 AD), after the creation of the cheap "Cai Hou Paper" by Shang Fang and Cai Lun on the basis of summing up the experience of the predecessors, paper as a new milestone in packaging was on the historical stage. Since then, after the emergence of engraving in the Tang Dynasty, paper has been further developed as a package, and simple advertisements, patterns and symbols have been printed on the wrapping paper of the goods. The most common carton in modern society appeared in the early 19th century. The United States, Britain, France and other countries have begun to develop the technology of carton production. Until around 1850, the United States invented the folding carton and production technology. This really makes paper an important raw material for the packaging industry.


With the development of the times and society, the demand for paper as a packaging material is growing. According to the statistics of world paper production in 2000, packaging paper and paperboard accounted for 57.2% of the total paper products. According to the statistics of the China Paper Association, in 2000, 2001 and 2002, the consumption of packaging paper and paperboard in China accounted for 56.9%, 57.6% and 56% of the total paper products, respectively, which was similar to the world trend. The above data shows that nearly 60% of the world's annual paper production is used as packaging, so the biggest use of paper is no longer the information carrier in the traditional sense, but as a packaging material.

Cardboard display stands is one of the most important packaging materials, widely used in food, medicine, chemical, building materials, home appliances, toys, electromechanical, IT products, textiles, ceramics, handicrafts, advertising, military and other products packaging, in the national economy It plays a pivotal role.

In the 21st century, paper has become the most important material in the packaging industry. Among the various packaging materials used worldwide, paper and paperboard accounted for the highest proportion, accounting for 35.6% of the total output value. In China, as an important raw material for the packaging industry, before 1995, paper packaging materials were the second largest packaging material after plastic packaging. Since 1995, the output value of paper product packaging has gradually increased, surpassing plastics and becoming the largest packaging material in China. By 2004, the consumption of packaging paper in China reached 13.2 million tons, accounting for 50.6% of the total output, exceeding the total of glass, metal and plastic packaging materials.

The reason why the traditional Cardboard display stands packaging material has regained a rapid development speed in a few years, becoming the first packaging material, partly because of the excellent adaptability of the paper packaging product itself, and more importantly, the environmental protection problem The restrictions on plastic products and the consumer market are driving environmentally friendly products. Paper materials are the materials that best meet the requirements of green packaging.
