Antalis has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement for Cocoon Offset 100% recycled papers.

The paper merchant said the Cocoon Offset range offers FSC certified, premium quality 100% recycled papers with an “exceptional” whiteness level of 150 CIE.

Made from recycled fibres from high-quality papers, the Cocoon brand is said to offer an ultra-smooth, even surface and gives “excellent printability” with vibrant colours and good opacity.

The Cocoon Offset range is suitable for digital printing and is compatible with dry toner digital presses.

Cocoon Offset is rated five stars on the Antalis Green Star System, which ranks Antalis’ products based upon their environmental credentials. For carbon neutrality, Antalis offers the option to carbon offset all of its products, including Cocoon Offset, through one of two flexible carbon offsetting schemes.

Antalis product manager Ben Cahill said: “For those wanting to take care of the environment without compromising the printing result, Cocoon Offset offers a top quality 100% recycled option.

“It is now exclusively available from Antalis, giving the benefits of sourcing from a reliable supplier with comprehensive environmental knowledge. The Cocoon Offset range answers the needs for all sustainable corporate print requirements from brochures and leaflets to annual reports.”

In September Antalis reached a sole distributor agreement in the UK and Ireland with Mondi for its new CO2 neutral design paper range Pergraphica. Just prior to this the business relaunched the 100% recycled natural white uncoated paper range Cyclus Offset.
