“Seeing — and touching — is believing,” said Julie Brannen, Director, Sustainability Solutions Fine Printing & Packaging Substrates, Monadnock Paper Mills. “The goal for our Astrolite PC 100 swatchbooks is to unlock the creative potential of graphic designers, creatives, brand owners, marketers, and commercial printers as they experience the material’s brightness, durability, and tactility.”

Like all Monadnock papers, Astrolite PC 100 is FSC® Certified (FSC C018866), manufactured carbon-neutral (VERs), and made with 100% renewable Green-e certified wind-powered electricity (RECs) under a third-party certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.

“These new lines are designed to luxuriously support sustainably-minded brands, particularly for high-end retail and corporate marketing communications among a range of desirable end-use applications,” said Brannen.

Ideal applications include annual reports, CSR reports, fashion lookbooks, catalogs, product brochures, newsletters, presentation kits, portfolios, pocket folders, and premium packaging.
