Click here or on the link below to read an interesting article about a proposed plan for Chicago to go paperless by 2015. The idea seems ideal especially in an economy where any cut back would help improve the bottom line. However, going paperless means a lot more change and additional costs than expected.

"iPads may be everywhere, but data from three distinct publication groups indicate that despite its seeming ubiquity, it's too soon for publishers to ditch print for pixel-only publications." - Two Sides
NewPage Paper has announced that they are discontinuing their Centura, Productolith, and Sterling Ultra lines. They have "shifted" gears and designed Sterling Premium,"the only paper you’ll ever want or need".
The New Sterling Premium is smoother than the previous grades because it has three layers of coating as opposed to two. The brightness of 94 puts it at a Premium/Number One level, and it is priced as a Number Two. Printers, Designers, and the end client will be happy with this new grade because of it's premium qualities, the excellent printability, and it's affordable price.

Today, our Chris Harrold intros our plans for the seven days of coverage,
gives a peak of our booth, and introduces our three speakers for the day.
First, Amnon from HP Indigo talks photo publishing, then we talked with

equipment designed specifically for Mohawk’s panoramic papers. We’ll
see you all tomorrow for Day 2 of coverage!
