Why specify a lightweight synthetic?

Prints Brilliantly

Bold, sharp, long-lasting colour always stands out with projects printed on synthetics. With their ultra-smooth, bright white surface, you can stands out from the competition.

Folds Beautifully

Synthetics can be cut, perforated, folded or scored just like paper. Create multiple applications with the same product. The possibilities are endless.


Ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications, toner fuses with the synthetic paper to make the finished product both durable and moisture resistant.


Synthetic papers provide an extremely tough, tear-resistant printable surface that holds up to the toughest customers.


Synthetics have the added advantage of being chemical and stain-resistant. They can easily be cleaned and sterilized to help curb the spread of bacteria making them the perfect solution for restaurant or health-related applications.


Specifying a lighter weight in synthetics can add up to major savings in printing, postage, and transportation costs. The added durability of a synthetic also increases shelf life while reducing the costs for reprints or lamination.
