Twin Rivers Paper Company Expands Footprint in the Label Market

Now Offers Industry’s Brightest Thermal Transfer Paper in 40 lb

South Portland, ME February 2, 2012 Twin Rivers Paper Company, a leading manufacturer of lightweight specialty label, packaging, and publishing papers, has announced that their market-proven Alliance® TT (Thermal Transfer) product is now available in 40 lb. This newly designed 40 lb basis weight (24×36/500) broadens the company’s comprehensive label product offering. This label portfolio includes release liner, C1S wet strength, thermal transfer and specialty base stock.

Alliance TT, long known for its excellent performance, Flexo (flood coat) and thermal transfer ribbon printability as well as pleasing aesthetics – eliminates many of the hassles that converters encounter when picking a thermal transfer label. With its specialized coating and surface smoothness, it delivers high quality images across a wide range of ribbon combinations. Its high brightness combined with its appealing blue-white shade provides an unparalleled print contrast for better bar code readability. And now with Alliance TT in 40 lb, converters can get more units out of a roll bringing even further savings to their customers.
