Neenah Paper Continues to Grow Its FSC Certified Offering
ALPHARETTA, Ga. (Sept. 2, 2010) - Neenah Paper (NYSE: NP) is pleased to add another one of its premium brands to its FSC Certified papers portfolio. The complete selection of CLASSIC COLUMNS® Papers, in all colors and finishes, are now FSC Certified. This is a brand known for its bold colors and unique textures: the traditional soft, watermarked linear finish and the embossed XL patterned with wider, more defined lines. It is an extraordinary communication medium that provides both visual and tactile appeal.
FSC Certified Papers ensures that papers meet the Forest Stewardship Council's (FSC) standards for responsible forest management and responsible use of forest resources. Along with being completely FSC Certified, CLASSIC COLUMNS Writing, Text, and Cover are made Carbon Neutral Plus*, with CO2 emissions offset through retirement of CCX Carbon Financial Instruments and sequestration from Neenah's rainforest reforestation project in Costa Rica. The color palette consists of 19 colors and 12 appealing duplex color combinations. The selection includes 13 recycled options that are Green Seal(TM) Certified, manufactured with a minimum of 30 percent post consumer fiber, two of which are 100 percent post consumer fiber. All Neenah Paper Writing and Text weights are laser and inkjet guaranteed, and several colors are available with the Neenah Digital universal digital finish in digital sizes.
"CLASSIC COLUMNS has long been a favorite for both designers and printers, it can elevate the simplest design," says Kathy Kemps, brand manager for Neenah Paper. "Now that all items are FSC certified, we're giving our customers both a beautiful and responsible choice."
