Monadnock Announces All Grades Now All FSC

Monadnock’s New Swatchbook – All Grades Now All FSC

Monadnock is pleased to announce that its entire line-up of Graphic Arts Printing and Packaging Papers and Boards is now Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified.

The papers are highlighted in a new sample book that makes it easy for brand owners and designers to find environmentally responsible paper and packaging products from one resource. Now in addition to being manufactured carbon neutral with 100% renewable electricity, designers and brand owners can now select papers certified by the most comprehensive chain-of-custody system for responsible forestry in the world. 

What’s Inside
Products in the new sample book include Monadnock’s FSC fine printing grades Astrolite®, Astrolite PC 100®, Dulcet® and Caress®; as well as DuraprinT™, Durascent™ and Envi by Monadnock® packaging papers and boards.

Astrolite is a brilliant white uncoated paper with superior formation and surface uniformity for excellent printability. Offered in smooth, a toothy vellum, and a luxuriously tactile ultra-smooth silk finish, it has high opacity to minimize show-through and dimensional stability to assure consistent registration and on-press performance.

One of the cleanest, brightest, and smoothest 100 percent recycled printing papers made, Astrolite PC 100 is made in a smooth finish with a minimum of fibers, flecks and blemishes. FSC certification assures that 100 percent postconsumer recycled fiber was used to make this paper. 

Dulcet is an elegant neutral white premium paper that is color-balanced for highly accurate color reproduction, particularly in flesh tones. Dulcet was designed for excellent printability and meets ANSI standards for longevity.

Caress is a sophisticated mellow white paper with an exquisite surface and superior formation. The muted tone of Caress adds richness and warmth to colors and accentuates sepia tones and lends a humanizing effect to portraiture.

Brand owners and converters needing a strong yet pliable cover material that prints beautifully and holds up to the rigors of demanding folding applications now have Duraprint 7, a 5.4 mil durable cover stock perfect for turned-edge applications.

Durascent scent blotter stocks, created to address the needs of leading scent developers and brand-owners in the fragrance, personal care, in-home and ambient air control markets for paper stocks that retain and impart accurate scent, are specially formulated to enhance scent absorption, retention, fidelity and “throw.” 

The Envi line includes recycled 18 pt. folding boxboard, recycled shopping bag stock, recycled thermal tag stocks and recycled label stock for wine labels and similar applications. 

About FSC Certification
SmartWood, a program of the Rainforest Alliance and a third-party FSC Certification agency, reviewed Monadnock's processes and procedures and found Monadnock to be compliant with the chain-of-custody standards for all of Monadnock Printing and Packaging products. FSC Certification ensures that all fibers used to manufacture Monadnock’s papers and boards conform to the FSC Certified chain-of-custody standards established for the responsible management of the world's forests. It also ensures the sustenance of people who live and work within them.
