Twin Rivers Paper Company Expands Hybrid Paper Options

Broadens Portfolio of Hybrid Papers with Border Brite® Expansion

Border Brite

South Portland, ME February 23, 2012 Twin Rivers Paper Company, a leader in lightweight specialty publishing, packaging, and label papers, has added 22lb and 24lb to its Border Brite grade line. Delivering the brightness of a freesheet and the opacity of a groundwood, Border Brite is ideal for reference books, bibles, catalogs, manuals and financial printing.

Launched in 2011, the Border Brite offering was engineered to bridge the gap between groundwood and freesheet papers since they provide a cost-effective alternative to freesheet. The addition of 22lb and 24lb broadens the basis weight range, creating more options for the customer.

“Whether it is freesheet or hybrid, we give our customers a broad range of basis weights and brightness levels to select the right paper for the job,” says Dave Deger, Director of Business Development and Marketing. “Our customers can always expect our papers to maximize printability, while delivering the opacity, bulk and strength needed to perform in the press room.”

Twin Rivers Paper Company is a leader in the lightweight specialty publishing market. Its freesheet portfolio consists of lightweight opaque papers such as Pharmopaque®Snowbrite Opaque®Twin Rivers Opaque®, Custom Brite® and Custom Plus®. Its hybrid portfolio consists of Border Brite®Bridge Supreme®Bridge Opaque®Frontier SupremeFrontier Opaque, and Hybrid Converting®. All of these papers are certified to the SFI fiber sourcing program standards and FSC® certified (FSC-C002686) upon request. They are also available with recycled content.
