Oce Introduces Satin Finish and Adhesive Backed Matte Finish PrintPerfect

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, Oct. 28 -- Oce, a leading supplier of digital document management and delivery technology, announces the availability of Oce Satin PrintPerfect and Oce Adhesive Backed Matte PrintPerfect wide-format media -- bright white satin and matte coated alternative photopapers developed and manufactured by Oce.  The new products are being showcased at Booth #414 at the SGIA '02 (Screenprinting and Graphic Imaging Association) Exposition and Convention, October 30 - November 2, 2002 in St. Louis, MO. Both the Oce Satin PrintPerfect and Oce Adhesive Backed Matte PrintPerfect products join the existing family of Oce PrintPerfect photopapers, which already includes both matte- and glossy-finish products.  The Oce PrintPerfect line was designed to provide an economical alternative to traditional photobase papers.  Oce PrintPerfect alternative photopapers are easier to use with a lower total production cost. The Oce Adhesive Backed Matte PrintPerfect alternative photopaper features a permanent adhesive backing combined with a universal matte coating that accepts both pigment and dye inks. This new matte finish adhesive-backed photopaper now extends Oce's innovative universal coating technology (originally developed for the Oce PhotoPerfect Plus product line) to the Oce PrintPerfect product line.  The coating's ability to accept both pigment and dye based inks eliminates the need for maintaining separate ink-specific paper stocks and making time- consuming paper changes on the printer -- which reduces overall inventory and production costs. Both the Oce Satin PrintPerfect and Oce Adhesive Backed Matte PrintPerfect papers are designed for applications such as indoor signage (posters, point- of-purchase displays), presentation/ exhibition signage, and high quality CAD and GIS mapping. They are compatible with all major inkjet display graphics printers including Oce, Encad, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, ColorSpan and Roland. Both products also feature: -- Full 400 percent ink load printing on any machine for richer images without printer headstrike -- Bright white base for wide color gamut -- Quick drying time for overnight printing -- Heavier, more robust base paper for easy handling and higher ink load retention without cockling -- Exceptional hot and cold lamination and mounting receptivity "Oce is pleased to deliver new alternative photopaper solutions whose performance not only exceeds others on the market but also help our customers reduce costs and achieve higher productivity and quicker print times," said Bruce Winfield, vice president of marketing for Oce Imaging Supplies.  "Along with the rest of our extensive line of wide-format display graphics imaging supplies, the Oce Satin and Adhesive Backed Matte PrintPerfect photopapers produce high quality images and contribute to the overall success of our clients' business."
