The new CTI Paper USA swatchbook showcases and updates all FSC-certified text and cover brands in metallic and pearlescent papers, translucents, printable kraft, soft flat matte and C1S metallic papers. The spotlighted brands are Aspire Petallics, Glama Natural, Glama Kraft, Tube and Currency.
Privately held CTI Paper USA is one of North America’s largest suppliers of premium digital and offset printing papers, envelopes and packaging papers. Sustainably produced, environmentally responsible and demonstrating high craftsmanship, style and elegance, the company’s papers are used in a broad range of commercial and social applications.
Over the past several years, CTI has expanded investment in product development to bring new options in digital printing to marketers, designers, printers and merchants. "We’re very focused on adding new premium papers for dry toner-based printers and presses, HP Indigo presses and offset equipment," said John Kelly, president and co-owner.
In December 2014, CTI launched new items and a new swatchbook/print demo for Kromekote, the world’s best-known super-premium cast-coated brand. Spotlighted were new reflective holographic foil papers, including new papers for toner/laser and HP Indigo equipment.
With its newest swatchbook and print demo issued this month, CTI again captures the powerful draw of papers and printing together with the timeless elegance of embossing and foil-stamping techniques. An Aspire Petallics Pure Silver 105-pound cover is showcased.
Ultra-luxe "Pure Gold" and "Pure Silver" papers added to Aspire Petallics line; papers look and feel like they’re crafted from precious metals
CTI’s Aspire Petallics text and cover brand of multi-colored metallic and pearlescent papers now offers Pure Gold and Pure Silver papers in a variety of weights and sizes, plus matching envelopes.
Sheets are available in 81-pound text and 105-pound cover options for dry toner and offset equipment, laser and inkjet printers, and in 105-pound cover for HP Indigo presses.
Both Pure Gold and Pure Silver incorporate the naturally occurring mineral mica to create the refractive, shimmering look of real precious metals.
The luxurious metallic surface provides added dimension to the sheet, allowing the gold and silver to simultaneously become part of the design—and extend it. Messaging is delivered on a tactile, high-impact and inviting substrate.
