Zanders Re-Launches Silver Digital Line of Papers for Toner-based Digital Printing
BERGISCH GLADBACH, Germany — February 26, 2016 — Zanders, the manufacturer of high-quality speciality papers and boards, has relaunched its Silver digital range. Silver digital is a two-side, double-coated paper and board, especially designed for toner-based digital printing, and available in both gloss and matte finishes.
"With the boom in digital printing, for short runs, variable content, special promotions and packaging, it was time for us to remind everyone about the benefits of Silver digital—one of the first ranges to be developed for digital print rather than adapted from an existing grade," explains John Tucker, managing director of Zanders. "Together with Chromolux digital for the premium market, Zanders now offers a product suitable for every digital print application."
Silver digital enables brilliant, clear-cut color reproduction on front and back and is available in grammages from 115 to 350 gsm. It has sharp toner adhesion, is fast drying, and is suitable for many applications, including brochures, displays, cards and packaging, and is recommended for photo albums.
It is HP Indigo certificated for HP Indigo liquid toner machines, as well as being approved for dry-toner presses from Konica Minolta, Xeikon and Xerox. The Silver digital range is made in Germany to the highest manufacturing standards, and uses only FSC-certified and sustainable pulp.
