These are also called solid cardboard, or boxboard, this board is thin and contains a smooth coating on one side which is applied during the manufacturing process. This smooth side is for gluing printed paper or foil to the cardboard or it could be printed in a printing press.

This kind of board is made to be water resistant and remain flat.
This kind of cardboard is used for hardback book covers, three-ring binders, and puzzles. It is formed by pressing sheets of kraft paper together, using an adhesive between each layer, until the desired thickness is reached. This cardboard is made in a way to be sturdy and remains flat.
Corrugated cardboard is formed by pressing a piece of carton board in hot corrugators to make the s-curves and then sandwiching the pressed sheet between 2 pieces of carton board.
Differences in corrugated cardboard depend on “flute” size. Smaller s-curve outcomes in a smaller flute and a lightweight box. The largest flute, used for big boxes, makes a sturdier box that could be stacked.
