Sappi Fine Paper Releases Tenth Episode of Off Register
BOSTON—October 22, 2013—Sappi Fine Paper North America today announced the tenth episode of its humorous online video series, Off Register on The Flo Channel, entitled "Improving the Workplace" which spoofs the often mundane team-building exercises at the office. Off Register, with over 280,000 views to date, is based on real-life experiences of printers and captures some of the more absurd, yet entertaining aspects of working on press.

In "Improving the Workplace," actors from Second City Improv deliver another satirical episode as they participate in a training workshop where they are asked to share their feelings in a round-table therapy session. Sappi's own Robert Forsberg, vice president of sales and business development also makes a special cameo appearance in this episode. "We've all been in emotionally embarrassing situations before and the workplace is no different. Sappi pokes fun at those awkward moments," said Patti Groh, director of marketing communications, Sappi Fine Paper North America. "That being said, we could not help but find a way to bring humor to your day with our Off Register series, which continues to be popular with our customers."
Sappi's Off Register not only shares hilarious stories of printing, it also celebrates the quirks of print production, the personalities people must contend with in the process, and the desire to produce good work despite uncontrollable variables. Sappi continues to invite printers to share their own 'war stories' for future episodes. Story ideas can also be submitted through firstname.lastname@example.org.
