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.

We all get excited when a mill introduces new colors and finishes to a grade. Because who doesn’t love more choices to pick and choose? But sometimes, something comes along that challenges the status quo that really thrills us. That something is Mohawk’s Inxwell surface technology, which fundamentally changes how uncoated paper prints. Continue reading

How to Improve Printing Results on Uncoated Paper

run with inxwellbook

Ever have this problem? You print photos on uncoated paper only to have all the details go fuzzy and shadows turn into featureless, black blobs? Or you print a large area of solid color and it looks mottled, blotchy or washed out? These are issues sometimes found with the printing results on uncoated paper. It is the nature of this paper to absorb ink and have dot gain, but with the proper paper selection (and pre-press adjustments) some of these problems can be minimized, if not averted. As for the paper choice, let us show you Mohawk Options. Continue reading
