Sappi’s “True or False” Guide Challenges Preconceived Notions about Paper

Filled with entertaining urban legends and popular misconceptions, Sappi’s new “True or False” booklet challenges frequently heard myths like “humans only use 10% of their brains” and “lightning never strikes the same place twice.” It also refutes the widespread belief that uncoated printing papers cost less than coated.  In reality, Sappi’s #1 McCoy and #2 Opus are both less than uncoated opaques such as Cougar, Finch Fine or Accent Opaque.

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.
