Maine Gloss - Recycled Papers

Maine Gloss

Maine Gloss is our premium, gloss-coated paper that’s wood-free with FSC® Mix certification. It’s been engineered to offer the fastest drying time available, very good bulk, and excellent opacity for heavy ink loads; while its triple coated, smooth surface contributes excellent runnability, printability and whiteness (CIE 124).

Made from FSC® virgin fibre pulp, Maine Gloss forms part of the widest range of FSC® Mix certified sustainable papers on the market.

Suitable Applications

Maine Gloss is ideal for:

Report and accounts, glossy brochures, glossy leaflets, direct mail, books (gloss finish), catalogues, luxury gloss magazines, greeting cards, invitations, menus, business cards and posters (depending on required opacity).
