Twin Rivers Customizes Publishing Papers to Target Religious Text Applications

Premium Hybrid and Freesheet Offering Delivers Value and Quality

Madawaska, ME, October 08, 2014 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — Understanding the challenges facing religious publishers and printers, Twin Rivers Paper Company tailored a portfolio of lightweight Premium Hybrid and Freesheet papers to deliver value and quality for spiritual scripture, inspirational non-fiction and study guides.

“Whether it is paper cost, supply chain logistics, quality or ease of doing business, publishers and printers are being asked to do more for less in delivering evangelical materials around the world,” said Robert Hutchins, Product Manager. “As an experienced supplier, we know this market. For the last 20 years our Freesheet grades set industry standards while our Premium Hybrid papers are driving market innovation.”

With an 80+ year legacy of papermaking, Twin Rivers is one of the primary North American manufacturers of lightweight opaque Freesheet papers, a category widely used for scriptural applications because of strength and printability. Understanding the market need for options, Twin Rivers pioneered the Premium Hybrid category, formulated with the optimal blend of Groundwood and Freesheet fiber to deliver opacity, strength and value.

“Our Premium Hybrid papers have transformed other publishing markets like financial printing and reference. We know once religious publishers and printers become more familiar with our blended products they will appreciate the unique benefits of the offering. Premium Hybrid can translate into a significant advantage for a publisher,” added Hutchins. “Our papers provide options that support brand image while stretching budgets to expand reach.”

Core papers for religious text applications include Custom Brite® and Bridge Supreme®. Custom Brite is a Freesheet paper available in 22-40 lb. basis weights while Bridge Supreme is a Premium Hybrid paper available in 18-38 lb. basis weights, with added hybrid capability extending up to 40 lb. Both grades are designed for this technical application; optimizing readability, performance and aesthetics.

Additionally, Twin Rivers manufacturers a robust line of publishing papers that can be engineered to meet the needs of a wide array of applications. The company is known for its lightweight manufacturing flexibility, excellent service platforms and willingness to co-develop customized solutions. Paper characteristics including fiber furnish, bulk, basis weight and brightness drive a needs-based approach to paper selection.

Five year print partnership for Balreed and global golf tournament

Balreed to provide all print technology and support to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championships for the fifth year running.

It may be known to many professional golfers as the ‘Home of Golf’ but to Balreed, St. Andrews Golf Course is a ‘home away from home’.

Once again Balreed has been chosen by the organisers of the world-renowned golf championship, played at St Andrews, as the official supplier of print and document technology.

This is the fifth year the event will rely on Balreed throughout the four-day tournament to provide and support print, copy and scan devices to media tents, European tour offices and tournament offices across all three courses that the event plays on.

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a magnet for golfers from every corner of the world. It has a unique format and incorporates two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers with a US$5 million prize fund, and a team competition which features some of the most celebrated amateur golfers playing alongside the professionals.

Lee Westwood leads the British challenge for the title this year, and many of the world’s leading international players will be there to compete with him. In the amateur ranks the playing roster is sure to include some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment, sport and business. Michael Douglas, Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid have all shared the fairways in previous years with sporting greats like Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Bobby Charlton, Boris Becker, Ian Botham, Ruud Gullit, Johan Cruyff and Nigel Mansell so expectations of the 2012 field are very high.

The tournament starts on Thursday 4th October and will play over three championship Scottish courses: The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Balreed’s support extends to all three courses and staff will be on site throughout the build-up and the tournament itself to help organisers prepare and manage the event.

Balreed’s Managing Director Robin Stanton-Gleaves commented: “When we were first selected to provide print support to the event five years ago we were thrilled, and even more so to be invited back the following year, it was a testament to our hard work. So to still be the chosen print partner five years later is a sincere compliment to all the Balreed team and we will continue to do what we have been doing which is careful planning and precise execution, providing service to the highest standard to ensure the tournament runs smoothly.”

Workshop 4: The commercial advantage of a print strategy

In addition on stand B34 and B44 Balreed will be showing live demonstrations of the latest print management, scanning and print workflow systems as well as explaining how Balreed’s Managed Print Services can help businesses control the cost of printing.

Gary Downey, Group Marketing Director at Balreed, said: “Being part of Business 2012 is very exciting as it gives us a great opportunity to show how Balreed can help new start-ups and more mature businesses control their costs whilst optimising their print capabilities.”
