Following on from last week’s focus on our range of Fadeless® display paper, this week’s feature is going to look at another essential item for classroom displays: Bordette® border rolls. These border rolls are now infamous and are asked for by name in schools throughout the world. Our leading pre-cut border trim is made in our warehouse in the UK using corrugated Fadeless® paper and is available in vast array of colours and three different designs. The scalloped edge finish still remains an old favourite but the Zig-Zag and Castle edged designs are fast becoming more popular, with all three helping to add the finishing touch to any display by complementing our Fadeless® display paper. As with the Fadeless® range there are a number of different sections to the Bordette® brand so this feature will again look at each one in turn. Once again please note that all prices mentioned do not include VAT.
Scalloped finish Bordette®.
As mentioned above, the scalloped edge Bordette® rolls remains our best seller. Each roll carries measurements of 57mm x 15m (two strips of 7.5m per roll) and are available in the following 24 colours:
|White (3701-4)||Deep Purple (3704-4)||Chinese Red (3706-4)||Nile Green (3712-4)||Azure (3716-4)||Teal (3719-4)||Pink (3726-4)||Violet (3733-4)|

Zig-Zag, Castle and Straight cut finishes.
In addition to the scalloped edges, we also supply zig-zag, castle and straight cut edges. Again they are £2.99 a roll with measurements of 57mm x 15m, but they are only available in a limited range of colours:
These imaginative finishes offer teachers something a little bit different to set their displays apart from everyone else’s and each finish is also available in a six roll assortment pack. Just like the scalloped pack, these are priced at £18 and contain the following colours:

Unfortunately these straight cut rolls are only available as part of these packs and so are not available to buy individually.
The Design Bordette® is a hugely popular range that features themed and patterned border which add something special to any display.

We do have one Bordette® design that we haven’t mentioned yet as it is a little bit unique. The Framed It! Bordette® (3770-0) is straight cut and was specifically designed for framing display boards and/or individual pieces of work, but it is still priced at £3.35 like the rest of our designed rolls.
