MeadWestvaco Offers the Tango Advantage Challenge

RICHMOND, VA—For companies looking to improve on-press performance and deliver high quality print, MeadWestvaco’s Commercial Printing business is proud to present ‘The Tango Advantage Challenge.’ Printers an learn how the performance of this leading two-side coated cover (C2S) stock can impact their businesses.

MWV’s Tango Advantage Challenge Program provides tangible evidence of Tango Advantage’s proven performance through head-to-head printing tests against the industry’s leading coated covers under identical printing conditions. Tango Advantage C2S offers better printability as proven by superior runnability, and an ultra smooth surface for consistency on press and in converting. With high brightness, clean-white styling, and more space for sharp graphics, Tango Advantage becomes the preferred choice for any printed application where quality, performance and value truly matter.

“When it comes to coated covers, MWV believes that no other sheet can match the ink holdout, dot integrity, smoothness and side-to-side uniformity of Tango Advantage – so we decided to establish a program that enables printers to prove it in their own operation – hence, the Tango Advantage Challenge,” says Kevin Clark, vice president of MWV’s Commercial Printing business. “It’s no surprise that the economic slump has had a severe impact on commercial printers. We’ve been traveling to the nation’s top printers to test Tango Advantage against the industry’s best-selling coated covers, and 75 top printers all agree – on the same press, under the same conditions – Tango Advantage performs better.”
