CTI Paper Launches Metallic Papers for Digital Toner/Laser, HP Indigo, Offset Presses
Newest swatchbook and print demo showcase five major CTI Paper USA brands
Aspire Petallics. Metallic and Pearlescent Papers. Aspire Petallics delivers one of the most comprehensive offerings of metallic and pearlescent papers in North America. The new swatchbook shows the full line of options across all colors, weights and sizes, including matching envelopes.
The continued expansion of the Aspire Petallics line enables designers and printers to be unrestricted in how they think about metallic papers in terms of output, whether digital dry-toner, laser, inkjet, HP Indigo or offset production.
In addition to the new Pure Gold and Pure Silver papers, Aspire Petallics is available in a wide variety of colors such as Champagne, Ice, Gold Ore, Sky Pilot, Blue Star, Juniper Berry, Black Ore, Silver Ore, Copper Ore, Snow Willow, Beargrass, Autumn Hay and Pearl.
Glama Natural. Translucent Papers. The company’s Glama Natural brand of translucent papers is the most comprehensive offering available today. White, extra white, clear and rough, plus a large spectrum of colors and the industry’s only recycled 30 percent PCW option are all available in a full complement of weights, sizes, matching envelopes and rolls for converting.
The line also features a certified sheet for HP Indigo printing, as well as a product called Glama Press for use in cold-set web printing by newsprint publishers in North America and worldwide.
In addition to their widespread use as flysheets, translucents have many other applications including announcements and envelopes, report covers, belly bands, business cards and greeting cards.
Glama Kraft. Printable Kraft Papers. Glama Kraft is the result of an important technology breakthrough by CTI Paper USA that enables high-speed, multicolor offset printing of real kraft papers. A value-priced, FSC-certified premium paper, Glama Kraft features a proprietary treatment that enables heat-set web printing and makes it suitable for laser/toner printing.
Glama Kraft delivers aesthetic and tactile appeal with unique messaging value. The paper contains 90 percent PCW fibers and 100 percent recycled content. It comes in a variety of weights and sizes, including a double-thick cover for specialty applications such as premium retail, clothing tags, beverage jackets and envelopes. Color combinations of browns and greys are available.
Currency C1S Metallic Papers. This coated-one side metallic paper in gold and silver—featuring foil and non-foil options—is available in 10-point cover in cutsheet and folio sizes and 65-pound label options.
Tube Soft Flat Matte Papers. This C1S and C2S sheet is available in neutral and dark, rich colors in a variety of sizes and weights, with matching envelopes. A proprietary anti-blocking treatment ensures ease of feeding on press, quick dry times and fingerprint resistance.
CTI’s environmental credentialing is among the industry’s strongest
The vast majority CTI Paper USA products are Forest Stewardship Council certified. Two branded paper lines, Aspire Petallics and Currency, are manufactured 100 percent carbon neutral.
