A high quality coated paper that brings your magazines to life

For superior quality combined with printing economy, NovaPress by Stora Enso will meet your sheet-fed offset and HSWO printing needs.

NovaPress is a semi mechanical special coated paper (LWC/MWC) with superior brightness, an excellent opacity ratio and great print quality. The paper provides better readability due to more even unprinted and printed surfaces without a ripple (fluting) tendency. NovaPress also has better visual gloss and smoothness for highly vibrant colour images, making it ideal for elegant magazines and catalogues as well as quality supplements.

The NovaPress family includes gloss NovaPress and the special silk-finished NovaPress Silk, both with smooth surfaces that allow for low ink demand and high print quality. To complement the range, NovaPress HB is a high bulk paper which provides good yield advantage and reduced mailing costs, ideal for demanding advertising in big editions. Added to the range are NovaPress Sheet and NovaPress Silk Sheet for Sheet fed offset printing.

NovaPress and NovaPress Silk come in a wide grammage range of 57-115 gsm, NovaPress HB is available in 57-90 gsm. All papers are ideal for HSWO printing for retail or commercial use. NovaPress is also suitable for rotogravure printing.

Novapress Sheet and NovaPress Silk Sheet are both available in a grammage range of 70 - 115 gsm.
