Product description

Invercote Creato is designed for graphical products, and offers equal, outstanding aesthetic printing properties on both sides. Both sides are fully coated and have a matt finish. Invercote Creato has a smooth surface that is tailored to faithfully reproduce the most sophisticated printed images. This surface, combined with Invercote Creato’s excellent structural, design and embossing characteristics, make it ideal for demanding graphical applications.The whiteness level is tailored to ensure the best print contrast and colour reproduction properties required for high-end print productions. A patented coating formula provides outstanding lightfastness, giving the end products a longer life.

Thanks to its composition of solid bleached primary fibres, Invercote has a superior strength and toughness compared to board grades that contain mechanical or recycled fibres or single-ply bleached primary fibre board. This strength gives several advantages in designing and producing of brochures, covers and cards of various kinds. In addition to traditional printing techniques, Invercote is qualified and certified for most digital printing presses on the market today and suitable for digital finishing technology.

Due to the excellent consistency of Invercote Creato its performance is predictable and dependable, making repeat print runs with the same machine settings and excellent print results possible.
