CTI Paper Launches New, Comprehensive Kromekote Collection of Cast-coated Papers
SUN PRAIRIE, WI—September 9, 2013—CTI Paper USA today launched a new and comprehensive Kromekote Collection of super-premium cast-coated printing papers to commercial printers and graphic designers in the United States and Canada.
Kromekote is long respected for its ability to deliver extraordinary print. The brand launch comes as many marketers today are expanding their investment in strategic, high-impact print.
The FSC-certified Krokemote Collection features the most complete offering of cast-coated papers for use in production-rated color copiers, offset presses and HP Indigo presses. Kromekote is available from local paper distributors and online at www.thepapermill.com.
CTI Paper USA, one of the largest suppliers of premium specialty printing papers in North America, modernized and refreshed the ultra-glossy printing papers line following its acquisition of the brand earlier this year. A new Kromekote swatchbook and print demonstration will be available next week.
“Kromekote is specified by printers and designers who require a highly differentiated, premium look and feel on their most important print projects,” explained John Kelly, president of CTI Paper USA. “Kromekote delivers above-average profits to printers because Kromekote jobs consistently deliver their clients outsized value and impact.”
Kromekote is ideal for attention-grabbing print promotions, direct mail, brochures, book covers, business cards, presentation folders, invitations, greeting cards, retail packaging, labels and more.
Details on the new Kromekote Collection
For offset and dry-toner production equipment, the new Kromekote Collection features a “universal” coated one-side sheet and a coated two-side sheet in a variety of weights and sizes. Kromekote is also available for HP Indigo presses in two calipers and sizes in C1S (RIT-certified for HP Indigo) and C2S (RIT certification pending).
Kromekote is available in colors and foils—and as a C1S label in two basis weights. In addition to FSC certification, Kromekote products are acid-free, lignin-free, elemental chlorine free and, with the exception of foils, recyclable.
For more than 80 years, Kromekote has been the premium standard in coated printing papers. It is ideal because of its mirror-smooth glossy surface, realistic highly detailed images, vibrant, saturated colors and excellent on-press performance.
Its fast-drying surface ensures crisp dot formation, super-sharp printed images, rich colors, nuanced shading and fine lines, all with conventional inks. Kromekote handles specialty finishing such as embossing, foil stamping, aqueous coatings and varnishes. Folding and scoring is clean and crack-resistant.
Kromekote can be used on all offset presses, HP Indigo presses, and production-rated equipment from Xerox, Kodak, Canon, Epson, Konica-Minolta, Oce and Ricoh, among others.
