Super-Brite Papers


Innovative eco-friendly alternatives

Our portfolio features uncoated freesheet (UFS) substitutes that are at the forefront of innovation. These "super-brite" papers are environmentally friendly and represent cost-effective alternatives for a wide variety of applications:  

  • Instruction manuals 
  • Inserts/flyers/circulars 
  • Direct mail 
  • Forms 
  • Maps 
  • Books  

They offer specifications and quality comparable to conventional offset papers at lighter basis weights, delivering up to 30% more printing surface per metric ton. This translates into less paper to print the same job and can also reduce mailing costs.

The latest additions to our super-brite grades include Ecopaque™, a high-opacity offset product, as well as Ecopaque Laser™ specially formulated for laser printing, and Ecopaque Jet™ with ColorPRO Technology for inkjet printing. These papers stand out for being both economic and eco-friendly.
