Most machines can sew through cardboard. Cardboards find similar applications as papers in sewing.
The cardboard’s thickness and the type of needle are 2 factors you should pay attention to when sewing.
Sewing through cardboard is very possible, but first, you have to assess the cardboard’s thickness. As the thickness of the cardboard varies, so does the needle, and the sewing machine you need to sew through it vary.
You may want to get an industrial sewing machine if you are looking to sew through cardboard. Generally, if you will be working on cardboard, use at least a 100/16 size needle in your sewing machine.
As long as you are not sewing with a lightweight sewing machine, sewing through cardboard is unlikely to damage your machine.
