ON DEMAND 2004 Booth #3427 NEW YORK--March 5, 2004-- SMART Papers, a leading producer of premium digital and inkjet papers, said it will introduce an expansion of the Kromekote line of color laser papers at the On Demand Expo 2004 next Monday in New York City. Kromekote Laser High Gloss CC2S (cast-coated two-side) features an ultra-smooth cast-coated printing surface specially formulated for superior toner adhesion in high-speed printers and copiers. As a result, it offers both image clarity and excellent post-press performance, including cutting, folding and embossing. "We are constantly improving our digital paper quality to make high-volume color laser printing a reality for a larger segment of the commercial printing market," said Tim Needham, President and CEO of SMART Papers. "We are also continuing to build on our tradition of launching new digital papers at the annual On Demand Expo in New York." As the color laser market expands, demand for high-performance color laser papers is on the rise. "Since laser technology requires an ultra smooth printing surface for optimal print quality," adds Michelle Garrett, Sales Manager of Digital and Retail Papers for SMART Papers, "Kromekote is an ideal choice." Kromekote Laser High Gloss CC2S is packaged for print production environments and offers digital printers a grade type that was previously only available to traditional offset printers.
