Astrolite®

Astrolite never disappoints. Trusted brands choose this brilliant white, uncoated, perfectly formed sheet – it takes ink like nobody’s business.

Available in smooth, silk and a toothy vellum finish. Basis weights range from 24 lb. Writing to 200 lb. Double-Thick Cover.

 

Astrolite is a brilliant white uncoated paper with superior formation and surface uniformity for excellent printability.

Its high opacity minimizes show-through and dimensional stability assures consistent registration and on-press performance.

Like all Monadnock fine printing papers, Astrolite is alkaline pH and buffered for longevity standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
