    Garda Gloss and Satin now available exclusively in the UK through Premier Paper

    January 2019 -

    January 2019 – 

    Made by Cartiere del Garda in Italy, the range is a two side coated woodfree paper with an excellent finish – both in satin and gloss.


    In terms of quality and performance, the paper offers high levels of runnability and superior results both on-press and in the finished product.


    Sheet formation and dimensional stability are two key factors in maintaining high speed sheet feeding. Both the characteristics are strictly controlled in the manufacturing of the papers in this range.


    A special formulation ensures that the printing surface of Garda Gloss and Satin gives precise dot transfer even in the finest areas of the image. The surface characteristics enhance the ink gloss and tonal density of pigments for clear reading of text and accurate reproduction of colour images. The surface coating includes latex additives which help to resist surface cracking on the fold.


    With exceptional drying times, the paper’s characteristics also include the regularity of its micro porosity levels, so that printing ink penetrates the coated surface evenly which promotes quick oxidisation and polymerisation of pigments and resins.


    Garda Gloss and Garda Satin are ideal for the production of books, brochures, catalogues, covers, direct mail, folders, inserts, packaging, postcards and much more, and available in a range from 90 to 400 g/m2.


    Premier Paper offers a strategically placed network of local branches across the UK, and its centrally located main depot in Minworth, whilst its specialist, dedicated divisions are geared towards specific markets, helping the company to support customers with all their paper needs.
