Sappi North America announces Flo Sheet and Flo® Digital Coated Paper Now 90 Bright

Thursday, Nov 19, 2015

Sappi North America, a leading producer and supplier of diversified paper and packaging products, today announced it has increased the brightness of its Flo Sheet and Flo Digital coated paper to 90. A customer favorite for its accurate color reproduction, superior print surface and affordability, Flo is now available in a more contemporary shade and optimal brightness – ideal for reflecting natural skin tones, bright hues and sharp details.

It is complemented by the introduction of Flo Sheet 120lb cover, an ideal choice for when a thicker, more substantial sheet is desired. Available in both gloss and dull finishes, this line extension further cements Flo Sheet's position as the printer house sheet of choice and the go-to solution for brands that understand the tactile and emotional power of a printed piece.

"Our customers come to us for our reliable on-press performance, high quality ingredients and environmental responsibility. Now that we've updated one of our most popular lines in Flo, they will be able to further meet the demands of their brands and budgets while producing captivating printed pieces," said Deece Hannigan, vice-president of the coated and packaging business, Sappi North America.

Those familiar with the Flo line know it for its balanced shade, allowing the paper to reflect a full range of light and reproduce an expanded color gamut. Now available with optimal brightness, Flo is easier to color manage while on press and ensures true color stability in the final piece, leading to greater efficiency and predictability for printed projects.

Made with 100 percent renewable energy and with the option of 10 percent recycled content, Flo Sheets is an environmentally responsible paper featuring FSC® and SFI® Chain of Custody certification and Lacey Act compliance.
