If you are a printer or specifier of paperboard grades for print and packaging projects, 2016 means changes for you. As we begin January - one of the most recognized brands in Coated One Side and Two Side Board is changing dramatically. If Carolina was your go-to grade, you have decisions to make. To help you, we've created our "What Board Are You?" Selector. It's set up like a swatchbook and allows you to fan out the different board grades we offer to make your selection. You may need brightness, whiteness, bulk, gloss, recycled content or third party certifications. We've got you covered. This must-have tool will allow you to make a selection with confidence. Print samples of each board and key attributes are included.

O-K PAPER offers these alternative products to our Carolina
• Ancora  • Carta Solida  • Kallima  • Productolith Points  • Pro Digital Knight

Each of these grades features exceptional ink holdout and superior color reproduction in C1S and C2S. Weights range from 7PT up to 24PT. Excellent for offset, die-cutting, embossing, foil stamping and silk screening, these affordable options offer the perfect choice in both quality and functionality. Digital and FSC-certified options are available in these white, coated covers providing cost savings with top-notch visual performance.
