Further Expanding Sustainable Materials for Digital Print Media Enhancement

BENNINGTON, N.H., November 5, 2020 — Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States, is pleased to announce the addition of Astrolite® Digital+, Astrolite PC 100® Digital+ and Astrolite PC 100 Velvet C2S to the Scodix Recommended Media List (RML).

Recently released luxurious Monadnock Astrolite PC 100 Velvet, with a universal print coating optimized for UV and conventional offset, dry toner and HP Indigo presses, is now recommended for Scodix Digital Enhancement Presses. 

Monadnock’s Forest Stewardship Council certified Astrolite line is renowned for superior formation, surface and side to side uniformity.  It is also now available in a range of 100-percent post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled fiber, uncoated and coated two side stocks that are 3-Star Certified for HP Indigo presses and compatible with Scodix post-press enhancement.

If something is going to be printed, it should be extraordinary, enduring and sustainable. For more information about Monadnock and its Astrolite products, visit mpm.com or send us a message to info@mpm.com.
