Coaster Board and Beer Mat
Supplier Since 1970

Fishers Coaster Board, also known as pulpboard or beer mat, is extremely durable, long lasting and highly absorbent.

At Fishers Paperboard we strongly believe in putting quality at the forefront. We make every effort to provide our customers with only the highest quality products that are available on the market. We import our coaster board from a mill in Europe that is one of the world leaders in the production of pulpboard. They source raw materials locally, within 50 kms of their sustainable mill.

Fishers Coaster Board is made from 100% virgin fibres and is 100% recyclable. It has a smooth, flat finish which makes it suitable for large-format letterpress, UV, digital as well as latex and offset-printing. Its two-sided bleached uncoated surface has high bulk and absorption properties and is a perfect vehicle for promotional advertising. All grades are OBA (Optical Brightening Agent) free to ensure color consistency.

Coaster Board Thicknesses

We have three thicknesses available, .035”, .045” and .061”. When you feel our coaster board you can immediately notice the difference compared to other brands. Fishers Paperboard carries one of the thickest, highest quality coaster board products on the market today. The thicker your coasters, the more moisture they will absorb and the longer they will last. Our coaster board has the durability and strength to absorb liquid while maintaining its shape.

Coaster Board Sheet Sizes

Fishers Coaster Board comes in a standard sheet size of 40 x 60”. With the average coaster measuring 3.5 - 4”, you can get approx. 150 coasters out per sheet. If you are needing a smaller sheet size for your project, our custom cutting service is here for you. Whether you need a straight or angled cut, our experts can fit up to 60" wide sheets in our guillotine cutters to produce custom sheets to your specifications. No matter the thickness or grade, we will provide a clean cut for your project in a timeframe that works for you.

The drink coaster is much more than a beer mat used for absorbing condensation, light spillage or for protecting tabletops, which is its intended purpose. Not only are coasters functional, but they are also like pocket-size billboards; they can spark conversations and inspire stories to be shared.

92% of people look at coaster for more than 15 seconds and two out of three people remember what was on the coaster after they are finished their dining experience. The coaster is a perfect product to stand out amongst the competition whether you are marketing your new brand, advertising your product or service or promoting an event or festival. No matter what type of business you are in, coasters are a great giveaway for special events, tradeshows, or even wedding favours. With all the different options and customizations that are available for printing and die cutting coasters in the industry today, the possibilities are endless.

There are many other specialty end uses where the high absorbency, stiffness and thickness of coaster board is favoured over other paper products. Some of these applications are cap seals, cake underlays, clothing tags and labels, notebooks, fragrance boards and air fresheners. With our three different thicknesses available you can be sure to find the one that is the perfect fit for your project.

Storage Recommendations

Unused coaster board sheets should be stored in a covered, dry and airy warehouse. Direct sunlight as well as big variation in humidity and temperature should be avoided during storage. In order to reach the optimum result in printing and die-cutting, the board should be left in its original wrapping and should be kept in conditions similar to those of its converting room for a few days before converting or printing.
