Use Royal Brites Poster Board for DYI Easter Decorations

Easter is a perfect time for creative projects – either to explore your own creativity or as a fun and engaging family activity. For DIY paper projects, the most versatile type of paper to work with is Poster Board, a sturdy paper product, yet pliable enough to be cut and shaped easily. Use it to make your own Easter decorations, cards, invitations, table setting décor and more. All you need is a bit of curiosity and a desire to explore.

Royal Brites Poster Board comes in a variety of colors and shades, making the creative process even more fun and the results spectacular. You can choose between Fluorescent Neon colors, Black and White and plain colors board that come in different sizes. We recommend starting with the 8.5”x14” E-Z Print Poster Board that is inkjet and laser printable, coated on both sides with a different color. For larger sheets you can’t go wrong with the 22”x28” and 20”x30” poster board C2S (coated 2 sides).
