Focus Feature- Bordette®

Followingbordette 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:
