Now offering Gloss, Satin & Matte directly from Somerset Mill for all your direct mail needs

BOSTON -- Sappi Fine Paper North America announced today the launch of a Somerset brand solution to meet the demanding needs of a growing direct mail market. The new lineup consists of three complete offerings: Somerset Web Gloss, Somerset Web Satin, and Somerset Web Matte--all made to 7pt caliper and guaranteed to meet U.S. postal requirements.

"The direct mail segment is growing and we are committed to offer a wider variety of solutions to support market demand," said Heather Pelletier, Marketing Director, Publishing and Commercial Web, SFPNA. "Sappi stands apart in our ability to leverage capital investments in our world-class machines, all to provide valued customers with high-quality solutions that deliver."

"For over 30 years, Somerset Mill has produced products with superior stiffness, press runnability, and consistency," said Pelletier. "Another high-performance attribute is the minimum basis weight variability due to Somerset's superior on-line process. With these factors combined, Somerset is engineered for the long run."

Somerset Web 7pt is just the latest example of Sappi's technical expertise in expanding paper machine operating capability to meet evolving market needs - as celebrated in our recent publication, Act Now: A Better Response to Direct Mail. The products are also produced with 80% renewable energy, and feature SFI® Chain of Custody certification, as is standard on all Somerset brands.

PEFC and FSC® certification and 10% Post Consumer Recycled Fiber (PCRF) are available upon request. For additional information on the product launch, follow Sappi on Twitter at @SappiNA and visit the company's Facebook page.  For samples, please contact your Sappi Sales Representative, or call 1.800.882.4332.
