Have you heard of Domtar's Paper Fun Truck?

Check out their latest addition to the PAPERbecause campaign.

'The video tells the story of the Paper Fun Truck, patterned after the ice cream truck that most of us remember chasing down the street when we were young. Our goal was to show how paper will always be a part of our daily routines – even in a digital age – because it not only meets important needs, but also brings excitement and joy.'

Domtar's goal is to have as many people as possible to see their Paper Fun Truck in action. Spread the word & check it out for yourself.

    Anchor Paper Express says 'See You Soon'

    Last Thursday we celebrated the retirement of our long time employee, Kathy. Kathy has worked part-time and taught many classes during her 8+ years at Anchor Paper Express. She was extremely knowledgeable on our products and was able to answer any question regarding paper crafting & techniques. We are sad to see her go but excited for her as she enters her well deserved retirement. We know she won't be able to stay away from the stores for long, so instead of saying 'good bye' we say 'see you soon'

    New Sterling Premium by NewPage

    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.
