BOSTON, MA | YUPO Corp. America launched its newest synthetic paper grade, YUPOBlue, made specifically for and certified to run on the HP Indigo line of digital printers. It is said to be perfect for short run and customized pieces.
YUPOBlue and HP Indigo offer the flexibility of using a superior substrate on premium printing projects that must meet the tightest of deadlines.
"When deadlines are tight, YUPOBlue's faster drying time gives printers an edge," said Troy Olson, Yupo's marketing manager. "And because the ink adheres to YUPO's surface, there is little-to-no smearing, chipping or scratching."
YUPOBlue reportedly is superior among synthetics for dimensional stability and also received HP's highest level of substrate certification. YUPOBlue is described as bright white, super smooth and durable. It is stain-resistant, 100% waterproof, and resists stretching.
YUPOBlue will be available in three weights of 12x18-in. sheets: 78#, 5.9-pt text, a 58#, 8.0-pt cover and a 74#, 9.9-pt. cover.
