Field Paper Show Featured Speaker – Sappi “Haptics: The Science of Touch”

Our featured speaker at the Field Paper Show was Jim Goetz of Sappi Paper presenting “Haptics: The Science of Touch”. Jim explained how our brains react to holding a printed piece in our hands and the impact it has on our perceptions and decision making. We’ve had so many requests after the show for this presentation so people could share it with their own customers to explain the value of print, so we want to make it available to you all.

If you weren’t about to attend the Paper show, here’s your chance to view the presentation at your convenience.

New! 2017 Field Paper Calendars

The holidays are over and we’re all trying to get back into our routines. No more of the constant supply of treats in the break room, midafternoon naps and late night Netflix binges! If you are anything like us, one of the first things we do in the new year is tear down that old, tattered, note riddled calendar and replace it with a new one. Although, many of us in the office have digital calendars or analog planners, we all agree that we like having a wall calendar we can use at a glance. There’s something about visually having those blocks of days in front of us to help reference where we are and how much time we have left in a month to help us schedule and plan.

The new 2017 Field Paper calendars are available and tout the theme of “At Your Service”, highlighting 12 ways we go the extra mile for our customers. We teamed up with the fine folks at Webster Design and Regal Print for the the design and printing and they did a bang up job! Check these guys out if you are in the Omaha market.

Two Sides Busts Paper Myths at Field Paper Show


Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the annual Field Paper Show! It’s always so nice to see our customers gathered in one place – talking with our mill reps, getting new ideas, discovering new products and going home with stuffed bags. Those who listened to our speaker, Phil Riebel of Two Sides, also walked away with a new understanding on common misperceptions about paper, print and the environment. So many people requested Phil’s slideshow that we are putting the PDF deck here. Also available for download are the brochure and posters Phil handed out at the show – Myths & Facts brochure, How Paper Is Made poster, Sustainable Forestry poster, Ready to Bust Some Myths poster.

For those of you who missed the presentation, Two Sides is the myth buster for the paper and print industry. They dispel environmental misconceptions with verifiable facts, information and studies to promote responsible production and use of print and paper. The most interesting and incredible impact they have is when they work with large corporations to help them change their “save a tree, go paperless” claims in their marketing. So far, they have influenced 65 leading companies to remove those false claims that have been misleading the public for years. Continue reading

Field Paper Turns 100 Years Old


Field 100 Logo CMYK

We are 100 years old! Field Paper opened their doors in 1916, the same year that PIggly Wiggly, the first supermarket, opened; the United States was a year away from entering World War; and the Boston Red Sox won the World Series. While many things have changed over the years, two things have remained the same for us…our sole focus on paper and our dedication to our customers. We thank you, our loyal customers and friends, for making 100 years possible. In the words of our president, Mike Freeland, “Without our customers, we don’t exist. It’s all thanks to them.” Continue reading
