Beauty and strength, together in one powerful package that's perfect for publishers, direct mailers, catalogers and printers alike. At Somerset, our one-of-a-kind manufacturing process produces sturdy paper with a smooth surface and remarkable on-press performance. With Somerset, you always get stunning results that demand your audience's attention.
Somerset is the only mill that combines papermaking, coating and calendering into a single continuous process. This means a stronger paper with more heft and fewer splices, which is critical to high-volume web printing. The process also creates a smoother surface that allows ink to stay higher up on the paper for superior holdout and print gloss.
Peace of Mind
Somerset is the perfect solution for high-intensity printing environments. Its incredible durability means fewer web breaks and less downtime, which also means less hassle and fewer surprise costs. And the Somerset Mill uses three machines all capable of producing a high volume of multiple weights and finishes helping to ensure your project comes in on time.
Somerset delivers a far more substantial feel when compared to similar basis weight papers. This is critical for publishers and direct mailers because it allows for a lighter weight while maintaining a powerful, tactile experience that your customers will want to keep in their hands longer.
