Cardboard is supplied to us on rolls, we then make our own blank cardboard books in the three most common fold types. The board is 0.5mm thick and when folded and glued produces a finished thickness of +/- 1.00mm. This gives a strong and durable finished product which perforates exactly and suits both key and keyless instruments. All finished music is coated with shellac to strengthen the card and provide some lubrication for the keys or mouthpiece.
