MONTREAL, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Resolute Forest Products Inc. (NYSE: ABH) (TSX: ABH) today announced that Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., will be incorporating Resolute's Ecopaque paper into an onsite demonstration live on the showroom floor at PRINT 13, the most expansive exhibition of digital, offset, flexo and hybrid technologies, products and services in the Americas. The exhibition will take place from September 8-12, 2013, at McCormick Place South in Chicago, Illinois.
Canon Solutions America will produce three finished books: "Grimm's Fairy Tales," "Frankenstein" and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" onsite at PRINT 13. The books will be printed on Resolute's Ecopaque paper, part of its Align™ family of high brightness, environmentally responsible mechanical papers that can be used as an alternative to chemical pulp coated and uncoated freesheet in inkjet, offset and laser printing. Produced on the Océ ColorStream 3900 printing system, the books will feature premium pigment black inks, along with full-color covers produced on the Canon imagePRESS C7010VP. Canon Solutions America has also preprinted several rolls of the same books, which will be finished on Standard Horizon's Smart Binding System live in the Standard booth #1902.
Premium Quality without the Premium Price Tag Developed to provide today's marketplace with a more cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional offset, all the papers in the Align family are derived from a renewable resource and produced in a safe, sustainable and environmentally responsible manner.
Made with 50 percent less wood fiber, Ecopaque has a smaller environmental footprint than traditional offset papers, including some which contain recycled content. Yet it still delivers the quality print service providers (PSPs) have come to expect from traditional freesheet paper. A high-yield paper, Ecopaque features higher opacity at a lower basis weight, resulting in significant savings in paper, mailing and transportation costs.
