Press release from the issuing company

[Cohoes, NY] – Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. has the most comprehensive digital paper offering available for today’s growing digital market. Now Mohawk has further expanded its digital line up with additional i-Tone products, heavier basis weights, and new sheet sizes to meet the needs of the rapidly diversifying digital printing market. Since its introduction more than a decade ago, digital color printing has remained a steadily growing market, and one that experts predict will continue to grow even more rapidly as technologies and opportunities evolve. An example of this is the recent announcements by several makers of digital printers. Agfa, IBM, Kodak, Xeikon, Xerox and Ricoh each unveiled equipment launches and major initiatives for this year. Additionally, several 2007 InfoTrends reports forecast future growth in several areas of the digital market, citing that U.S. consumer digital photo print volumes will increase from 13.2 billion in 2005 to 16 billion in 2009. “In a market that is moving as quickly as this one, the role of the printer has naturally changed to include advising and educating customers on the use of the correct, and best possible papers for their applications,” says Chris Harrold, Director, Business Development.
