Appleton Coated releases inkjet substrate reference guide

Appleton Coated has created What Works Where — a comprehensive guide to web inkjet presses and the Appleton Coated substrates that perform on them.

Ann Whalen, Appleton Coated’s senior vice president marketing and customer services, explains, “There are many different high-speed inkjet web press platforms available to printers today, and a question we hear often is, “What papers work on my press?” There are many factors to consider – press technology, ink type (pigment or dye), and whether the application calls for coated or uncoated paper. It is confusing for both printers and paper merchants. This guide helps all of our customers find the web inkjet papers they need for optimal performance on press.”

Appleton Coated’s product specialist, Amy Ambos, adds, “Our web inkjet products are highly regarded by both press owners and press manufacturers and this guide gives clear answers to customers and prospective customers. Technology continues to evolve with new press introductions, modifications to current presses and inks. We will continue to update the brochure to reflect these changes along with product updates.”

Appleton Coated is the market leader in North America for high-speed web inkjet papers offering a wide variety of both coated and uncoated options under the Utopia® brand. The offering includes coated and uncoated inkjet products which are part of the Hewlett Packard (HP®) ColorPRO Technology Partnership program, and papers for other pigment-based and dye-based web inkjet platforms.
