whatboard shadow-01This week we are discussing each of the five board grades in our new “What Board Are You?” swatch promotion. We introduced this must-have sample last week. Get connected with us if you haven't gotten yours. Let's take a close-up look at Ancora.

Ancora C2S (coated two side) meets the heavier board needs you have. We stock Ancora C2S in 14 PT, 16 PT, 18 PT and 24 PT. This premium SBS paperboard has outstanding printability, consistent forming, and high durability characteristics. Plus, Ancora is made without optical brightening agents (OBAs), which means you don’t have the fading and reversion that can occur when OBA-treated paperboard is exposed to sun or fluorescent lighting. It's ultra-smooth and FSC® certifified. That tells you the fiber used was harvested in accordance with the highest environmental standards. In addition, the majority of the fiber in the paperboard is reclaimed from other industrial processes. It’s suitable for luxury merchandise packaging, presentation folders and handles special techniques like varnishing treatments, foil stamping, and embossing beautifully. And, don't forget, it's 90 bright, FDA approved and elementally chlorine free.

What Board Are You?

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.

Digital and FSC-certified options are available in these white, coated covers providing cost savings with top-notch visual performance.
