What is the difference between pulpboard and paper coasters?
are the most common bar coasters you’ll see with the branding of a beer or liquor brand. They’re made of recycled pulp and are very absorbent. They come in three common weights;
Lightweight: 35pt or 40pt
Mediumweight: 55pt or 60pt
is likely another term you could use to refer to pulpboard coasters. Or, you could consider them to be a very lightweight paper sheet that serves as a lower cost coaster. These aren’t absorbent and usually need to be tossed after 1-2 uses. If a lightweight coaster is 35pt, you could consider a paper coaster to be around 10pt thickness.
