agree  jccantrell: high-grade might fit, too. I might also suggest "card stock"

  -> Yes, thanks.

agree  Lancashireman: Not 'cardboard' (for boxes) or 'card stock' (unknown this side of the Atlantic)
4 hrs
  -> Thanks. Actually "stock" is common in the UK (try Googling it), though it serves no purpose as far as I know.

agree  Kate Collyer: with Andrew: 'cardboard' in the UK will invariably carry overtones of cheap brown boxes - not in the least 'edel'

"Edel" also evokes status and sophistication, not just better quality. Stock card does that, too. If it''s thick enough, that is.
