Finch Paper unveils superior inkjet sheet

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Glens Falls, NY - Finch Paper is meeting the proliferation of inkjet development and adoption head-on with Finch Inkjet Pi, the newest addition to Finch's Uncoated Digital Paper portfolio. Engineered to meet the demanding needs of high-speed, pigment-based inkjet applications, Finch Inkjet Pi produces stunning images that "pop" on the page due to maximized gamut, density and snap.

Finch Inkjet Pi provides consistent print quality on a variety of commercial, continuous and drop-on-demand inkjet print engines, such as the InfoPrint 5000; HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Press; Kodak Prosper; Océ Jetstream 1100/2200; SCREEN Truepress Jet 520; and most other commercial presses using pigmented inks[1].

"Finch Inkjet Pi is unique in that it secures the pigment on the paper surface while allowing the ink vehicle to penetrate for excellent drying performance and print fidelity," says Tony McDowell, VP Sales and Marketing at Finch Paper.  "The result is sharp detail with greater color. This new paper gives printers an ultra smooth, non-glare, environmentally-responsible option."

Giving Coated a Run for the Money
Finch Inkjet Pi's differentiating attributes include:
- excellent detail "snap" and contrast
- increased color density and gamut
- rapid ink drying for higher print speeds
- minimal "show through"
- minimal color-to-color bleed

"Finch Inkjet Pi is proving to be a worthy competitor to coated stocks," McDowell says. "Coated sheets notoriously have problems with dry time, which is one of Finch Inkjet Pi's most powerful attributes."

The paper performs remarkably for transactional-promotional pieces, direct mail, book printing, marketing collateral, business identity pieces, presentations, and more.

Moving forward in 2010
Encouraged by the positive response to its highly rated digital papers, including Finch Fine Color Copy and Finch Fine iD, Finch is confident that Finch Inkjet Pi will further the company's reach into digital print markets. "It's exciting to light-up a growing league of digital print customers with our service platform - they recognize the value in our R&D, size, and service," McDowell explains. "We're a sea of calm amidst the tumult in our industry."
