Uncompromising performance for
> sophisticated audiences.

High-end brands know their customers expect nothing less than the best. That's why we engineer McCoy to deliver the ultimate print contrast with incomparable light reflecting luminance and infuse the paper with only the highest-quality ingredients. With McCoy, you'll always give your customers a brilliant brand experience.

Unmatched Experience

McCoy's superior surface and ability to reflect an expanded range of light lets printers apply fully saturated films of ink, while maintaining superb detail from shadow to highlight. Its unrivaled luminosity also gives printers the ability to expand the dynamic range of print, creating bold contrast between the darkest elements and the brightest whites allowing rich, saturated images to pop off the page. And its one-of-a-kind finish makes it a pleasure to hold in your hands.

Best Ingredients

Everything we put into McCoy is top shelf. From the meticulous selection of wood types and fiber mix to manufacturing and refining our own proprietary coating. It's this uncompromising attention to detail that seals in McCoy's captivating brilliance.

Minimal Variability

We intentionally set extremely narrow tolerances for variability to ensure that McCoy provides a consistent, beautiful bright-white printing surface every time. Paper that doesn't meet our exacting standards is simply remade.

Wide Range of Basis Weights

An expansive range of basis weights offered including 80 to 100lb Text as well as Cover weights up to 130lb. McCoy Silk Cover 130lb, with a caliper in excess of 13pt, is an excellent board grade substitution.

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.
