BOISE, Idaho, April 20 / -- Boise Paper today announced the retail debut of its Boise Presentation Laser 30% post-consumer fiber paper in OfficeMax's Print & Document Services Centers nationwide. Boise Presentation Laser paper was developed specifically to ensure exceptional performance in laser printers and color copiers. With a 96 brightness rating, the paper delivers brilliant high-resolution images and is ideal for printing or copying reports, proposals, newsletters, presentations and external customer correspondence. Now environmentally conscious customers can choose a high-quality recycled-content laser paper for their best work.

Boise Aspen contains 30% post-consumer fiber and features a 92-brightness rating. It is engineered for use in high-speed copiers and printers making it an ideal fit for use in the walk-up/self service copier business.
"Recycled-content products are very important to Boise and with Earth Day around the corner, we are excited to announce Boise's product availability to OfficeMax Print & Document Services customers," said Carol Hudson, Boise Paper Marketing Manager. "Producing recycled-content paper uses less water, less energy and fewer chemicals in the manufacturing process compared to non- recycled paper products and is therefore environmentally preferable."
