Tell me more!

Built to withstand the test of time, heavy use, and harsh outdoor conditions, PolySlate Polyester Paper outperforms and outlasts any laminated, coated, or synthetic paper available.  The only thing more durable is our hero product, TerraSlate.

PolySlate is compatible with laser printers, copy machines, and digital printing presses, eliminating the need for time-consuming and costly lamination.

Available in a variety of weights, sizes, and colors, PolySlate is versatile enough to suit any application. It offers the same image quality and printability as standard paper and can be folded, cut, hole-punched, and die-cut while remaining 100% waterproof. This makes it invaluable for countless applications across various industries. PolySlate is also acid-free and considered to be of archival quality.

Printing Tips!

When printing 10 Mil PolySlate, use the thick paper setting, or the glossy paper setting on your printer for the best results. 

Consider UV nano-coating for the best toner protection on applications such as menus, or ask us about our printing services. This will eliminate the possibility of toner transfer if sheets are stacked wet and left to dry.

What is PolySlate made of?

PolySlate is crafted from commercial-grade polypropylene, ensuring it never delaminates, cracks, peels, or frays at the corners. With identical surfaces on both sides, it prints equally well on both faces. PolySlate supports high-speed printing with minimal static electricity. It is FDA Food Contact Safe, colorfast, and can be sanitized and washed with soap and water, making it an ideal choice for a variety of applications.

Can I print and write on it?

PolySlate can be written on with a ballpoint pen or a Sharpie.  Pencil also works but can smear in some situations.  It is compatible with laser printers, copy machines, and digital printing presses but is not compatible with inkjet printers.  If you would like us to print PolySlate for you on our ultra-high-end digital printing presses at industry-leading rates, send an email to or click here to read more about our printing services.

Is it of archival quality?

PolySlate is of archival quality and acid-free.  It is also the exact same on the front as the back so that you can print and write on both sides equally.  It can be recycled as a #1 recyclable but please note that like anything, PolySlate may or may not be able to be recycled into new materials at your local recycling center which is why we strongly encourage re-use whenever possible.  Click here for a list of creative ways to re-use TerraSlate and PolySlate.
