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

A Refreshed Look for Neenah Environment


We are going to take a quick break from talking about the remaining grades of the Neenah Design Collection for an announcement made this week…and it’s from Neenah Paper once again (these guys just don’t quit). Their eco-friendly gradeline, Environment, has gone through a significant refresh with seven new colors and the introduction of a new finish called RAW which is reminiscent of the rough surface of construction paper. The color palette is the result of extensive market research and the outcome is fresh and current with an urban twist. If you are a fan of gray, you are going to adore the colors Wrought Iron, Concrete, Weathered and Stone while the colors Grocer Kraft and Honeycomb will remind you of grocery bags and packaging material.  Seven lighter colors come in white and naturals shades with some containing flecks and specks enhancing the recycled look of the paper.
