ENVIRONMENT® Papers: Sustainable Choice

Take a look at the new ENVIRONMENT® Papers swatchbook and you'll see that we've cracked the code of recycled paper, demonstrating that post consumer fiber and premium quality are not mutually exclusive when it comes to our recycled paper.  Some might think of it as "used paper".  Technically, maybe it is.  But what's more sustainable than reusing something?

We believe that just because you're sustaining and saving natural resources like trees, water and the atmosphere, you shouldn't have to settle for limited options when it comes to papers for printing identities anad high end collateral.  You deserve premium quality and more choices.  That's why ENVIRONMENT Papers are now entirely FSC Certified and available with four different levels of post consumer fiber content.   

100% Recycled Fiber Papers
FSC Certified with 100% post consumer fiber.

FSC 80% Mixed Sources
Made with 80% post consumer fiber and 20% FSC Certified fiber.

FSC 50% Recycled (Alternative Fiber Papers)
Made with 50% post consumer fiber and 50% alternative fiber (bagasse and bamboo).

FSC 30% Mixed Sources 
Made with 30% post consumer fiber and 70% FSC Certified fiber.

Something else you'll see in the updated swatchbook is a fresh, new color palette.  And if some of the colors have a ring of familiarity, it's not your imagination.  We've taken the most popular colors from our EVERGREEN® Papers and incorporated them into ENVIRONMENT Papers.  The best of both brands is one place.

If all this isn't enough, the ENVIRONMENT Papers PC 100 White is also available with a Smooth Digital Finish that's not only HP Indigo Certified, but optimized for use in any digital application.  It's also a great solution for hybrid offset/digital projects that require perfectly matched, high performance premium papers - as well as matching envelopes - that respect your environmental sensibilities.

Spec + Connect HOW 2009

What's Happening?

We're becoming a fixture!  As we do every year, we are pleased to be sponsoring the HOW Design Conference, June 24-27.  As one of the longest running continental sponsors of this annual conference, we feel that it's a great opportunity for all of us to learn how we can better serve the design community.  And even in a tough economy, it's a great way to recharge those creative batteries.  We'd love to see some new faces, and we look forward to meeting up with old friends.  This year's conference is in Austin, Texas, Live Music Capital of the World®, and home to some of the best ribs we've ever tasted!  Its laid back, offbeat style is the perfect backdrop for reinvigorating your soul.  We hope to see you at the Neenah Paper booth where we can show you all that's new in color, texture, and all the tools you need for specifying Neenah Paper.  Later, we'll be looking for you at the famously fabulous Neenah Paper Closing Party (always a MUST DO at the conference).  For more information visit www.howconference.com

Neenah Paper is also a Presenting Sponsor at this year's AIGA Design Conference Make/Think, coming this fall to Memphis, Tennessee.  Join us in celebrating design excellence while enjoying legendary blues and BBQ.  For more information visit www.designconference2009.aiga.org.

The Spotlight on Neenah Digital

Spec + Connect Digital Banner

Neenah Digital made a splash at two of the largest annual digital conferences in the printing industry:  The On Demand Conference & Exposition in Philadelphia and the 2009 Dscoop Conference in Orlando, Florida.  The addition of ENVIRONMENT® Digital Paper to the award winning Neenah Digital portfolio generated a lot of interest and excitement among attendees.

The updated Neenah Digital comprises a selection of premium digital papers that includes CLASSIC CREST® Digital, CLASSIC® Linen Digital, and now ENVIRONMENT Digital Papers.  They boast a Universal Digital Finish that has been tested and optimized for use on all digital presses including HP Indigo®, Xerox iGen®, and Kodak NexPress®, as well as office and desktop equipment.  All Neenah Digital papers are FSC Certified.

We were recognized for the second consecutive year at the ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition with a Best of Show Honorable Mention award in the category of Innovations in Paper Usage and Substrates.

All Neenah Digital papers are also HP Certified, which is why we were so visible at Dscoop 4.  The annual conference is presented by the Digital Solutions Cooperative, a dynamic community of HP Indigo Press owners and HP, whose focus is on making the most of the technology of HP Indigo's digital solutions.
