Frequently Asked Questions

What material is the cutting board made from?

All of our plastic cutting boards are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. HDPE is a formulated non-porous, high density material for food processing applications designed with superior scratch resistance. It will not absorb moisture, bacteria, or odors. It will not chip or peel and is dishwasher-safe. HDPE is not altered by chemicals, moisture, or impact which makes it ideal for such a wide range of applications.

What is the difference between the pebbled and smooth finish?

Textured HDPE plastic is most commonly referred to as plastic cutting board material and can be cut into any custom shape and size determined by the consumer and the application. The non-porous surface is not slippery and prevents the users knife from going dull after repeated use, which makes for an ideal cutting surface for food application. Additionally, the boards are textured on both sides so that they can be used on either side, extending their longevity. While smooth HDPE is still considered food safe, it is not as ideal for cutting or preparing food the way that textured HDPE is.

How do you calculate shipping costs?

Plastic-Craft Products is pleased to offer an enhanced value shipping program on for all orders shipped within the Continental U.S. (excluding Hawaii and Alaska)

  • Orders UNDER $75.00 and within the standard size dimensions and weight qualify for a FLAT $6.00 RATE for standard shipping.
  • Orders OVER $75.00 and within the standard size dimensions and weight qualify for FREE standard shipping.

Our site will automatically offer the most affordable packing for your order and may split your order into multiple packages to offer you the best shipping rate. If the item(s) in your cart is/are estimated to be dimensionally oversize, your shipping quote will include a large package surcharge. In many oversize cases, simply reducing the dimensions of the board by just a few inches may return standard size rates. If ordering a large board, it is often recommended to purchase two separate boards (each half of the desired length) to be placed next to each other in order to minimize the shipping costs caused by the large package surcharge.

Orders which contain item(s) that exceed the UPS weight and size limits (this includes full sheets) and cannot be shipped via UPS can ONLY be shipped via an LTL freight carrier or picked up locally.

What is the typical lead time?

Most orders are cut and shipped within 1-2 business days of order receipt. Please note that this does not include transit time. Depending on your destination location, ground transit is generally between one to five days and oversize shipments via LTL freight carrier may take a little longer.
