It sounds like you may have the wrong weight for the poster board. He does not specify the weight, other than it is a matte poster board. The board needs to be light enough to bend, but heavy enough to not wrinkle under its own weight. I am getting old, I cannot remember the name of that paper we used to use in school for decorations. For Christmas we would cut stars and tree, etc. It would do the trick.
I made a DIY light box, and money has been wasted on different paper, poster board etc. while trying to fit it in the box. It has been a bit frustrating. I really wish I could show you a picture. I really need help and suggestions. I am trying to take pictures of some items I make and sell, but I can't even get past photographing them. If anyone can help, I can email you a photo of what I am trying to do which is basically photograph a throw pillow with a white background. I will then put them online for sale.
Here is a link to what I am trying to do. I have made the box already, but when I insert the paper/poster board, it wrinkles or bends....sigh :(
