GPA has introduced its collection of specialty papers engineered specifically for dry toner presses.
These new specialty papers offer opulent textures, pearlescent shimmers, and recycled and translucent options to create applications with a “captivating ‘wow’ factor,” according the GPA. This collection is perfect for photo books and photo prints, direct mail, corporate communications, stationery, marketing collateral, and other value-added products.
Because they are compatible with a wide variety of finishing processes, including die cutting, coating, foil stamping, and folding, these papers can be customized. They offer superior printability and exceptional image reproduction, providing guaranteed performance on most Xerox, Ricoh, Canon, Kodak, Konica Minolta, and other dry toner presses, the company states.
These premium papers offer a variety of environmental and conservation benefits. In addition to being FSC certified, these sheets are recyclable, biodegradable, acid-free, and elemental chlorine free. Many of these sheets are also long-life certified with archival properties for added assurance that printed pieces will stand the test of time.
“This product line represents GPA’s continued investment in the high-value, high-growth segment of the digital print market,” says Craig Surette, GPA’s business development manager for the dry toner market.
“Many of these products are entirely new to the North American digital print market, representing the aesthetics currently driving European applications. Now, they’re available in North America only from GPA. With end-users demanding tactile and engaging stocks that grab their target audience’s attention, this new line helps our print partners gain share and profitability in that space.”
Stocked and readily available in 17.71-in.-by-12.59-in. or 16.53-in.-by-11.69-in. sheets, this new assortment includes a wide range of basis weights, shades, textures, and finishes.
