Popular for so much more than price.

Greatness doesn't guarantee an unlimited budget. That's why we engineer Flo to give you the quality you expect from Sappi paper at a price that makes it hard to resist. Its superior color balance helps your brand look its best under a variety of lighting conditions and it's the best match to most proofing papers. With Flo, you get an exceptional experience that fits within your cost structure.

Big Impact, Lower Price

People choose Sappi for our quality ingredients, environmental responsibility, reliable on-press performance and the attention we give to the smallest details. Flo gives you all of those features at a practical price to meet the demands of your brand and your budget.

Natural Tones

Flo is a balanced white sheet with low fluorescence, allowing it to reflect a full range of light and reproduce an expanded color gamut. With Flo, skin tones look natural, images are true and critical colors are spot-on.

Color Stability

A neutral shade and low levels of optical brighteners make Flo easier to color manage while on press and ensures true color stability in the final piece. And that means greater efficiency and predictability for your project.

Sustainability

When you commit to a print campaign, you should be confident in your paper company's approach to sustainability. That's why we take a holistic view of our environmental responsibilities from harvest through manufacturing, distribution, end use and disposal. From beginning to end, we infuse environmental and social responsibility into our paper, processes and people in order to give you one less thing to worry about.

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification—an independent, nonprofit, non-governmental organization—works with forest managers, paper and timber companies and their external certifiers to assure that the world’s forests are managed sustainably for the benefit of future generations.
