Monadnock Releases New Promotion
Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc. released a new Graphic Arts Printing Paper promotion, "Respect Nature."
Part one of the new series, "Respect Your Brand," this poster demonstrates both the power and beauty of nature. With respect and sustainability in mind, this poster is printed on Monadnock Astrolite PC 100, 100lb. text, one of the brightest 100 percent Post-Consumer Recycled paper available. It is a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified paper, Manufactured Carbon Neutral with 100 percent Renewable Electrical Energy. In fact, an average of 50 percent of Monadnock's annual electrical usage is generated by mill-owned, low-impact, run-of-the-river hydroelectric generators.
"Respect Nature" offers several print demonstrations featuring high-resolution, multi-color printing. Print techniques in this poster include tri-tone, four-color process, four-color process with touch plates and four-color process with high-fidelity green and orange inks.
The paper was printed on an eight-color press using soy-based, low-VOC content inks with an overall aqueous protective topcoat applied on each side. The variations in print techniques provide practical assessments of what these techniques impart to a variety of image types.
The brochure is a single sheet of paper folded numerous times both with and across the grain using 1pt. and 2pt. rules in the die press. Even with this extensive folding, no cracking occurred at the folds. This is a highly demanding converting test for any paper, but especially for a 100 percent Post-Consumer Recycled paper.
