July 19, 2010 - 11:31

CHICAGO, July 19, 2010 (Press Release) -GPA proudly announces two new items in their Ultra Digital®line of papers: 150# Gloss and Matte Cover paper, and shimmering Champagne and ICE Pearl papers in text weights. These new items broaden GPA's Ultra Digital®offering, giving their customers more options for creative applications and profitable solutions. Like GPA's complete line of Ultra Digital®papers, the 150# Cover and 80# Pearl Text papers are HP Indigo and RIT certified for guaranteed flawless performance on HP Indigo presses. They offer crisp image reproduction, exceptional ink adhesion and a uniform surface for consistently beautiful results.

GPA's Ultra Digital®150# Gloss and Matte Cover papers are balanced white, triple blade coated for supreme printability, and coated two sides for duplex printing. These papers are perfect for applications such as postcards and direct mailers, business cards, greeting cards, invitations, hang tags, posters, menus and any application where significant bulk is required. They are available in 18 x 12 and 19 x 13 sheet sizes, and are FSC certified with 50% recycled content (10% post-consumer waste and 40% pre-consumer). With this latest addition, Ultra Digital®has become the most comprehensive brand of coated Text and Cover papers for HP Indigo presses on the market today, with products ranging from 70# Text to the newly-added 150# Cover.

GPA's new Ultra Digital®Pearl 80# Text papers, available in Champagne and ICE, add impact and a "wow factor" to everything from traditional communications to high-end applications. They offer the quality and functionality of conventional text papers, but add an opulent feel with their luminescent sparkle that shines right through the printed image. These papers are excellent for brochures, photo books, yearbooks, and any application that calls for a text paper to stand out and make an extra special impression. They also make great promotional literature for high-end luxury items such as jewelry, cosmetics, fashion, automotive and real estate industries. Ultra Digital®Pearl 80# Text papers are available in a 12 x 18 sheet size, and are biodegradable, recyclable, pH neutral, elemental chlorine free and contain no metals, guaranteed.
