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).

Specify this brilliant white sheet for maximum contrast and image impact.
