Appleton Coated’s PrintUtopia spotlights Matte papers

PrintUtopia, the paper-centric educational series from Appleton Coated, shares “A New Look at Matte” with print and creative professionals.

This informative piece describes the greater opacity and enhanced readability, higher caliper and affordability for practical requirements, and tactility and softer dot to elicit an emotional connection with the recipient. Illustrating these qualities, six matte choices from the Utopia brand of coated printing papers are showcased in a range of shades, weights and environmental options.

Matte selections in U1X:Green and U2:XG are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and contain extra post-consumer recovered fiber (20% and 30% respectively). These environmentally friendly papers are acid-free and elemental chlorine-free, and manufactured with Green Power, electricity provided from renewable energy sources.

To assess the environmental savings of Utopia Matte compared to other paper options, the “Utopia Green Zone” Web site, shares an online calculator. Also online, visitors will find a chart for using Utopia coated papers business reply cards and other U.S. Postal Service direct mail guidelines.

Printed on U2:XG Matte, 80-pound cover, “A New Look at Matte” compares conventional lithography on the exterior panels and UV printing on the interior panels. Four-color process is intensified with touch plates, then protected and enhanced with varnishes, as well as with aqueous and UV coatings.

Further supporting the accelerated pace of customers’ projects, the Utopia Express Program saves time, money, and resources with ‘two-days to ship’ service on custom-size U2:XG and U2 Matte sheets.
