GPA, a market leader in substrate solutions for digital, wide format, and offset printing, announces the addition of PaperTyger Durable Papers to its collection of substrates for offset presses. Having initially introduced PaperTyger to the digital printing market in 2016, this expanded offering will provide new opportunities for printers and marketers to create more beautiful and effective print.
Thanks to its patented, solvent-free manufacturing process that laminates two paper layers to a PET core, PaperTyger looks, feels, and performs like paper with added resistance to tearing, moisture, and greasy substances. Designed for any application that calls for durability at a cost-effective price point, these specialty papers are particularly suited for rugged maps, menus, manuals, ID cards, product tags, posters, packaging, and other hardworking pieces.
PaperTyger Durable Papers offer the hassle-free finishing and converting performance of traditional papers, and can be easily guillotine cut, die cut, scored, folded, and glued, among other processes. It also boasts FSC certification, and is made of paper from responsible sources.
GPA currently stocks PaperTyger for offset presses in five different basis weights ranging from 27# Bond to 108# C2S, in sheet sizes from 8.5 in. by 11 in. up to 26 in. by 40 in. GPA also offers PaperTyger for HP Indigo and dry toner presses.
