Renewed UPM DIGI Color jet – an ideal choice for direct mailing with duplex colour printing

(UPM, Helsinki, 20 April 2012) - UPM has renewed its UPM DIGI Color jet paper. During the past two years the printing properties of the paper have been improved and now it is possible to achieve even better printing results with low ink amount. UPM DIGI Color jet was initially launched in May 2010.

UPM DIGI Color jet is a special surface treated paper. It is an ideal surface to display invoice information added with some appealing promotional material - an excellent choice for direct mailing, transpromotional and transactional documents in addition to many other colourful mailing documents and books.

UPM DIGI Color jet is developed for dye based inks and it provides high print density and wide colour gamut. High ink drying speed enables fast print-outs without colour-to-colour bleed.

Excellent product for growing markets

“We see growth potential in this product since nowadays there is more promotional material included in the invoices than before. UPM DIGI Color jet is a very competitive product and fulfills the demanding market requirements. Excellent end result is achieved with low ink usage and this means cost-savings for customers. It has optimized optical properties which guarantee low print-through and enable printing of four colour advertisements,” says Arto Kipinä, Sales Operations Director, UPM Label and Postal papers.

UPM DIGI Color jet has EU Ecolabel and it is FSC® or PEFC™ granted.
