Wigston Paper Plugs paper shortage
A shortage of uncoated paper within the print market has been a blessing for Wigston Paper, which has announced its new Snowcap range for offset litho.
Fluctuating exchange rates have affected the UK market and led to uncoated paper being much more difficult to source than previously.
Discussing the new range, Wigston director James Walker said: “As one of the oldest paper suppliers in the UK, founded in 1932, we feel it is our place to make sure the gap in the market is plugged and people can still print profitably.
“There is a constant demand for uncoated stock, it is a high-volume product used every day by everyone who uses litho offset methods. It is a brilliant, arctic white sheet with excellent runability.”
Snowcap is described as being perfect for litho, and available for a variety of jobs including journals, greeting card inserts and exercise books and journals.
