Sappi has developed a sheet that combines versatility with quality, taking cross-platform printing to a whole new level. Certified on HP Indigo, qualified on Kodak NexPress, suitable for Xerox iGen 3, iGen 4 and other production color digital presses such as Canon, Ricoh, and Konica BizHub. Reduce your working capital by having just one digital cut sheet on your floor that will exceed all of your digital printing needs.
