Flambeau River Papers in Wisconsin launches new high-quality inkjet grade called RiverJet, which is on par with coated grades, designed to run smoothly and quickly on high-speed continuous-web printers, using either dye- or pigment-based inks

PARK FALLS, WIsconsin , October 30, 2013 (press release) – RiverJet’s exceptional printability puts it on par with coated grades

Flambeau River Papers, one of North America’s “greenest” paper mills, has launched RiverJet, a beautiful new inkjet grade, to accommodate the fast-growing inkjet printing market. RiverJet is a highly dependable inkjet sheet designed to run smoothly and quickly on high-speed continuous-web printers—using either dye- or pigment-based inks—while delivering superior printability.

RiverJet is also an excellent option for numerous printing applications, including office documents, transactional mail, flyers, catalogs and brochures. Additionally, because dye-based inks “sit up” on the surface of the sheet very well, RiverJet customers’ printed products feature vivid colors and bold blacks, while maintaining rapid drying time. Furthermore, its 94 brightness enhances contrast, color density, and “snap.”

“In addition to a beautiful very smooth surface, RiverJet can reduce ink consumption by a considerable margin for many users,” said William “Butch” Johnson, FRP’s owner and chief executive officer. “As a result, companies that use the RiverJet grade can save quite a bit of money on ink over time.”

Like all FRP products, RiverJet is made in accordance with FRP’s stringent environmental policies. In its seven-year history, FRP has won numerous awards for its environmental programs, many of which have been targeted toward energy efficiency. These ongoing programs go hand-in-hand with a growing list of capital investments the family-owned mill has made in recent years, all of which demonstrate its long-term commitment to partners, suppliers and customers.

“We are always busy, and we never stop improving the mill with innovative projects, whether they are directed at new papers, quality, sustainability, operational efficiency or our other focus areas,” Johnson said. “We remain very devoted to the ongoing success of our customers, employees and partners, and the beautiful Wisconsin Northwoods.”

RiverJet is just one of several specialty papers FRP has qualified in recent months, as part of an initiative to create a more profitable “mix” while continuing to serve as a key supplier of uncoated white papers for customers. Other specialty grades the mill can now produce include MOCR bond, base papers, wet strength papers, FDA-approved grades, and more.
