Friday, March 07, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Brussels, Belgium – International Paper, the world’s largest paper and packaging company, has announced that in association with leading regional paper merchant Paper 4 Print, it is offering customers who place an order for £200 during March the chance to win tickets to the Rugby League ‘Magic Weekend’.

Customers who spend £200 on International Paper’s Rey Text & Graphics range of papers with Paper 4 Print will be placed into a fabulous prize draw, where they can win tickets to Rugby League ‘Magic Weekend’, which will be held on Saturday, 17th May at the venue of the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.

Commenting on the Magic Weekend promotion, Mike Robertson, International Paper’s Country Manager UK stated, “We are delighted to expand our Rey range of papers available to customers in the North of England from Paper 4 Print. Rey Text and Graphics is an ideal paper for a wide range of print technologies from Litho to Digital.”

Mark Haworth Sales Director of Paper 4 Print added, “Rey Text & Graphics is a high quality addition to our product portfolio and we at Paper 4 Print are delighted to be able to offer our customers, in conjunction with International Paper, the chance to win tickets for The Magic Weekend by spending £200 or more on this product in a single transaction during March.”  

He continued, “The tickets on offer are for Saturday 17th May and the four fixtures on this date culminate in the Wigan Warriors v Leeds Rhinos battle of the Roses – an event that sport fans across the North West will savour!”

The Rey range is produced at International Paper’s Saillat mill in France, which is one of the world’s best performing sites in terms of CO2 emissions. Since 1990, Saillat has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 78%. 

The Saillat mill uses thinning from certified forests or those that are in the process of becoming certified, with its main forestry supplies located within just 128km of the mill, reducing any transport related environmental impacts such as CO2 emissions.

Saillat also recovers by-products from the furniture and framing industries which represents 27% of its wood supply. In terms of energy efficiencies and performance, some 88% of Saillat's energy requirements are met by the on-site production of green energy (biomass).

The Rey Text and Graphics range is now Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified, which means that the wood used to make the paper is produced from sustainably managed forests.

The Rey range is also EU Ecolabel-accredited, which is the official European eco-certification. This label is awarded only after strict assessment of a product’s impact on the environment – throughout its life cycle from raw material through to distribution.

Available in both cut sizes, folio sheets and reels, The Rey Text and Graphics range is available in a range of grammages from 80gsm to 160gsm. 

Paper merchant Paper 4 Print has sales offices in Manchester and Liverpool, and supplies all types of paper and board to litho and digital printers throughout the Northwest & North Wales, along with large format digital media. Paper 4 Print is also a member of the AIMS Group, a purchasing consortium of independent regional paper merchants based in the UK.
