Midland Paper’s 2014 Inkjet Summit ‘Case Study’ Demonstrates Dramatically Improved Ink Drying Properties, Ink Consumption Savings & Expanded Color Gamut with New High Speed Inkjet Paper Options
WHEELING, IL – Midland Paper participated as a co-sponsor in the Inkjet Summit 2014 on April 7-9 in Ponte Vedra, FL. The Inkjet Summit is an invitation-only, hosted event designed for senior managers and business executives who want to understand how inkjet technology trends, software, consumables and finishing solutions will impact their businesses and help them shape their strategies for the future. Midland Paper’s David Field, Sr. Business Manager Inkjet Technologies, presented a ‘Case Study’ illustrating effective print media options that dramatically improve printing performance. Field presented two inkjet papers, one of which was Mondi’s “DNS Enhanced”, a pigment coated inkjet paper that offers greatly improved ink drying characteristics with improved color gamut and ink consumption savings. The second inkjet paper presented was the “Midland Paper Company (MPC) Satin Inkjet” which boasts a traditional fine paper look that is engineered to be highly compatible with high speed inkjet presses. “Our MPC Satin Inkjet has superior ink drying properties compared to other coated paper’s in this segment, which, allows printers to achieve better print results, improved efficiencies on press and in finishing/bindery…in fact, customers have told me that they ran our Satin inkjet with over 90% ink coverage then proceeded to immediately finish the job in binding, box, ship and invoice their customer without any delay” said Field. Both the Mondi DNS Enhanced and the MPC Satin Inkjet are readily available as stocked products through Midland Paper’s Quick Jet! Program.
