Can we have office paper that stays white & bright even longer?

WE LOVE:

  • Brilliant white paper that keeps its brightness until you need it
  • High quality whiteness that does not shift

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • Shading dyes & OBAs with poor light stability can cause paper to be out of specification during production…
  • … and tend to quickly change shade in storage causing an uneven and inferior appearance
