Commercial Converting


Atlantic has emerged as one of the largest converters of bleached paperboard in North America. We serve customers nationally with commercial converting facilities located throughout the United States.

Commercial paper converting serves a broad customer base. We work with paper merchants to convert product, primarily bleached board, and provide quick-turn service as well as carton and skid inventory. We also work directly with customers on folding carton accounts, providing custom sizes, quick service, and expansive inventory programs.

High-speed sheeter lines and multi-shift operations allow us to react quickly according to our customers’ needs. Precision press-ready sheeting, rewinding, and trimming are our core functions as we work from our on-hand inventory and with a dedicated transportation and logistics network.


Commercial Paperboard Converting


We work to make things easy for our customers.

While our products and capabilities lead the industry, it is the service commitment of our people that sets Atlantic’s converting operations apart.

Instant price quotes are available with a simple phone call, and our individual personalized service is available from the initial inquiry though delivery of the finished product.


Our state-of-the-art commercial converting facilities offer tremendous capacity and unequalled commitment to quality and service. We play a vital role in the supply chain as one of the largest convertors of fine paperboard grades, providing downstream finishing services for solid bleached sulfate (SBS) paperboard.

We purchased our first precision sheeter in the mid-1980s, and in 1990, demand had grown enough that we purchased our second sheeter at that time. In 1992, we added 2 more and growth in our paper converting division has continued since then, most recently with the purchase of 3 International Paper (IP) converting facilities.

Our modern, multiple line capacity and multi-shift operation allow us to be flexible in production scheduling and reacting to the changing market. Extensive board inventory and our dedicated transportation network, put skids at the door of commercial printing, tag and label, and folding carton customers throughout the U.S. – on time, every time.


Precision sheeting, rewinding, guillotine trimming, and laminating are our core functions, and, within that scope, converting special sizes and quick turns are at the heart of our strengths.

Our laminating and embossing capabilities allow us to produce casino-grade playing cards. We are able to provide laminating services for paper-to-paper, including an opaque stoplight sheet, paper-to-board, and board-to-board.

Atlantic maintains a massive on-site inventory of first-quality domestic paperboard from major North American mills, offering a full caliper range of SBS, C1S, and C2S. Our extensive inventory also includes a wide variety of roll widths, allowing us to minimize waste for the custom converting of special sheet sizes. Atlantic converts sheet sizes from small digital sheets run on digital presses, all the way up to huge 100” long sheets for large format printers.

In addition to SBS paperboard, Atlantic converts tobacco board as well as coated and uncoated fine paper grades. Also available are industrial grades such as CUK (coated unbleached kraft), CRB (coated recycled board), and KraftPak (a low density/high yield uncoated natural kraft printable board grade).


All of Atlantic’s converted papers are first-quality product, backed by our manufacturers, their technical teams, and by Atlantic’s own in-house technical staff with years of experience in both converting as well as commercial printing. Our mission is to exceed our customer’s expectations in the performance of our products, the reliability of our service, and the integrity of our commitments.

Atlantic has evolved from operating a single commercial paperboard converting facility in North Carolina to becoming one of the largest converters of bleached paperboard in North America with converting locations throughout the U.S. We’ve been able to grow and develop to this point because of the care we take in our work, the quality of the product we start with, and the quality of the converted papers that we deliver to our partners.


Atlantic Packaging has shown its commitment to sustainability and assisting customers in achieving their sustainability goals. We’ve done this through qualifying for and implementing certified chain-of-custody programs that guarantee the paper products we receive are coming from certified and responsibly managed forestlands and are traced throughout our process from raw material receipt to finished goods delivery.

These certification programs include Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® ) FSC® C016743; Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC); and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).

See More Details on our Quality Certifications page.


Our fine paperboard converting operation has expanded significantly over the decades, with room and opportunity for further growth.

Atlantic has physical commercial converting operations in North Carolina, Michigan, and Dallas (see Our Locations). Together with our robust logistics program, we are able to offer national coverage and provide further convenience and reliable service to our customers.

We look forward to serving you with the best quality, care, efficiency, and professionalism in the marketplace.
