To mark the 15th anniversary of its introduction, PRO-DESIGN, favoured as the choice for professional laser printers, has now been optimised to offer excellent results for high-speed inkjet printing as well. The paper will also come complete with new, modern packaging.
The new PRO-DESIGN optimisation expands options within the professional printing industry, and for desktop and office printer users. The key to the PRO-DESIGN optimisation is the application of ColorLok technology, incorporated into the paper during manufacturing. When printing occurs, ColorLok interacts with the ink pigments to 'lock' them at the surface.
In an inkjet printer, PRO-DESIGN with ColorLok provides more vivid colours, bolder sharper blacks, faster drying time and reduced smearing. For laser printing, it delivers consistent sheet moisture content and surface smoothness. Standard filler particle size reduces wear and tear on critical printer components. Other benefits include validated surface electrical properties and improved performance to help reduce paper jams and misfeeds.
Gerald Demets, Commercial Director Paper and Board, European Papers said, "for 15 years International Paper Europe has continuously invested in the PRO-DESIGN brand. Today we are proud to offer its advantages not just to laser-print professionals, but to those in the fast-growing high-speed inkjet segment as well,"
All PRO-DESIGN papers are manufactured on a single machine, ensuring perfect consistency, along with a 99.99 per cent jam-free guarantee. PRO-DESIGN is also suitable for all finishing treatments – from stapling, perforating, folding and binding, to laminating, varnishing, sealing and embossing.
