International Paper’s Pro-Design® Joins Warren’s Digital Papers Range

Press release from the issuing company

Warren, the UK’s leading independent board and paper stockist, has further expanded its digital paper range, with the addition of International Paper’s Pro-Design®. Stock is now available from 100-350 gsm in popular sizes including A4, SRA3 & SRA2.

FSC® certified and produced at IP’s Saillat Mill in France, Pro-Design is a high-white, super smooth paper designed for professional, high-speed applications for all colour laser and inkjet printing and has attained a 99.99% jam-free guarantee accreditation across the entire range providing a perfect consistency. This has been confirmed in multiple, in-depth tests conducted on leading printing systems and validated by customer feedback.

Commenting on the addition of Pro-Design to its digital papers range offerings, Warren’s Commercial Director, John Turner, stated, “This was an easy choice to make, Pro Design’s reputation in the market speaks for itself. With the continued increase generally in digital sales, adding SRA3 throughout the full gsm range (100 gsm – 350 gsm) compliments the rest of the size range perfectly.”

Pro-Design’s main features and benefits include; a high whiteness for sharper-contrast printing, vivid colours and excellent printability; ideal sheet formation and smoothness for consistent print quality, denser picture and perfect toner transfer; optimal stiffness for jam-free printing; problem-free, two-sided printing; suitability for various converting processes: cutting, stapling, perforating, folding, binding, laminating, sealing; extensive range to meet equipment and application requirements.

Produced to high environmental standards and enhanced with ColorLok® Technology - the Pro-Design range is now optimised to offer excellent results for high-speed inkjet printing as well. International Paper describes the product as having ColorLok® technology incorporated into the paper during manufacturing. During printing ColorLok® interacts with the ink pigments to ‘lock’ them at the surface.’

Providing an optimum environmental performance, Pro-Design is certified by both FSC® and EU Ecolabel certification systems, as well as having ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, ISO 18001 OHSAS Health and Safety, ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System and ISO 9706 Ageing Resistance accreditations.

Warren is a member of the AIMS Group, the UK’s largest independent merchant consortium, and this has enabled it to offer a broader range of quality products from the world’s leading manufacturers. The AIMS Group is an organisation made up of leading independent paper and board merchants in the UK and Ireland with individual members focussing on supplying their local regions, enabling them to provide a superior level of service. Areas served by Warren include the East and West Midlands, the North East, the South West and Scotland.

International Paper’s Saillat mill produces both pulp and paper. It is the only mill in France to cover the entire production process from wood to paper and is one of the leading cut-size producers in France.

Pro-Design is suitable for a wide and extensive range of end uses, including; catalogues, brochures, charts, correspondence, external communication, folders, training materials, short run colour printing, reports, promotional materials and inserts, presentations, posters, photos, newsletters, manuals, leaflets, graphics, forms and business cards.
Pro-Design has been developed to deliver maximum colour impact, bringing your graphics to life with a real flair.

In 2017, International Paper marked the 15th anniversary of its Pro-Design brand. Since coming onto the market Pro-Design has established itself as a top-shelf product for full colour, high quality, laser print applications.

Taking advantage of developments in high-speed inkjet technology, the Pro-Design range now provides the inkjet market with the same outstanding results that professional laser printers have depended on for a decade and a half.

This optimization thus expands options for the professional printing industry and for desktop and office printer users too. To highlight this 15-year milestone, Pro-Design now comes wrapped inside new, more elegant and modern recyclable packaging – showing the True Power of Design.
