UPM DIGI papers for transpromo and direct mail printing

Two main high-speed inkjet colour printing products are UPM DIGI Color Jet and UPM DIGI Jet. The surface of these woodfree uncoated papers meet the specific requirements during the printing process, with fast ink absorption, low bleeding and excellent waterfastness. UPM DIGI Color Jet is a pigmented paper, developed for full colour printing. Its main end-uses are direct mail and transpromotional document printing, but it also suits perfectly for many other colourful mailing documents and books.

UPM DIGI Jet is offered to lower ink coverage products such as transactional documents, statements, books (invoices, order forms etc).
