NEW - Laminated Paper

We recently started working with a paper mill that has a patented process to produce an alternative to synthetic paper and other durable media products.  This is a great alternative to the more expensive synthetics such as Yupo and Tyvek.
This is a lightweight tear resistant laminated paper.  It is made with FSC certified papers.   This provides noticeable durability while providing signification advantages when used in flexo, litho offset, laser, digital, UV and ink jet printing.

Paper Grades

Bleached
Available in mil thickness: 4.3mil, 6mil, 7mil and 9mil.

Application/Industry Area

           Typical applications include graphics printed materials, label stock, banners, posters, packing.
            Other applications: law labels, mattress tags (there is a version that is stitchable), lumber tags, print media that needs durability such as menus, ID cards or maps.
