Alpharetta, Georgia – Today, Neenah announces an expansion to its ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers collection which now includes 25 attention getting colors in a wider range of basis weights and digital sizes to meet the needs of marketers and digital printers alike. A new 135 lb. duplex cover, available in three color combinations, is also available; the perfect choice for that distinctive business card or presentation folder.

The enhanced offering is based on extensive market research and customer insights.  With the move to shorter print runs, variable printing and the need to have their product stand out, marketers have requested Neenah provide a wider range of weights and sizes to help them manage costs and drive opportunity through their direct mail, luxury packaging and communication campaigns. The ASTROBRIGHTS Papers collection now includes a wide range of weights to provide the most complete, single-source offering available.

ASTROBRIGHTS Papers can also be used for flyers, menus, packaging applications, newsletters, corporate identity programs, announcements, brochures and marketing materials; just about anywhere attention is sought.
