Appvion, Inc. has announced the addition of a 20 lb. bond to its lineup of treated high-speed inkjet papers. Engineered and manufactured specifically for web-based inkjet printing, Appvion's 20 lb. Treated High-Speed Inkjet Paper has been qualified on key original equipment manufacturers' (OEMs) presses including Hewlett Packard, Ricoh, and Screen. This new paper is the latest addition to Appvion's expanding portfolio of specialty papers, one that includes market-leading products in the carbonless, thermal and security segments.

Like the other products in Appvion's high-speed inkjet family, the 20 lb. Treated High-Speed Inkjet Paper delivers exceptional print quality making it ideal for catalogs and books as well as direct mail, promotional materials and transactional documents such as bills and statements. The lighter weight of this 20 lb. bond (50 lb. text/75 gsm) paper can help customers lower their paper and mailing costs.

"Those potential cost savings are a key benefits of this product," said Ethan Haas, Appvion's vice president and general manager of carbonless and specialty papers. "Plus, the surface treatment we apply to our high-speed inkjet paper optimizes performance and versatility enabling printers to use either dye or pigment water-based inks with this product."

Appvion's 20 lb. product offers a white sheet for excellent image contrast and high opacity for lower show-through. Plus, it runs smoothly and efficiently on post-processing and finishing equipment.

Our low minimum order quantities for both our stock and making programs benefit our printer customers by helping to lower their working capital, and giving them the confidence of knowing they can quickly get their product to their customers."
