disagree  Steven Geller: I beg to differ. I do not believe that any of these terms are applicable to the manufacturing of coloured cardbord, nor did I find anything on the Internet to cause me to think otherwise.

coloured cardboard / posterboard


Explanation:
I would just say coloured cardboard / posterboard - it simply means that the cardboard paper itself is coloured, rather than the colour having been applied by some process such as printing, or coating.

disagree  Steven Geller: I do not believe that "integrally dyed" is applicable to cardboard, nor did I find anything on the Internet to cause me to think otherwise. In my view, cardboard is either dyed or not. Else, it can be lacquered or coloured using some other process.

disagree  Steven Geller: Your citation is the only occurrence of "mass-dyed" used together with cardboard on the Internet. Cardboard is not "mass dyed".

COMMENT:


Explanation:
I agree with Stephen that noen of the terms given so far are correct applied to cardboard, at least in my personal experience.

However, there IS a correct technical term that should be used; for the life of me at the moment I can't remember what it is, but I'll try and find it if I can; I just wanted to tell you that a proper term DOES exist. sorry I can't be more help, for the moment at least!

I\'ve a feeling the term is \'solid dyed\', but I\'ll keep on checking...

through coloured


Explanation:
I have been looking this up in reference to acrylic ABS and came across this useful document which refers to "through coloured". Seems like it could be the answer in some circumstances at least.
