Domtar: New FSC-Certified Domtar Schooner Publication Paper
Press release from the issuing company
MONTREAL, Feb. 2 - Domtar has just upgraded its coated lightweight paper for magazines, catalogs and book publishers seeking to satisfy eco-conscious customers. The Domtar Schooner product is the latest to achieve Forest Stewardship Council certification, making it the only North American publication paper whose raw materials can be traced through a Chain of Custody to environmentally sustainable forests. Other Domtar products available in FSC-certified varieties include Domtar Cornwall Coated Cover and Domtar Opaque - Plainfield.
"Savvy consumers are increasingly calling for magazines and catalogs made from environmentally friendly products," said Doc Maiorino, Vice President of sales for Domtar publication papers. "FSC-certified papers let publishers convey a 'green' brand image to their customers. But even more important, they don't require publishers to sacrifice quality, versatility, or reliability."
In addition to the FSC certification, Domtar Schooner has been improved to 84 Brightness. It is available in matte and gloss finishes and features an enhanced blue-white shade for sharper colors and more vibrant flesh tones. The paper is elemental chlorine free and it comes in basis weights from 38 to 60lbs.
