Find A Merchant


Created out of a passion for doing the right thing.

These days, companies demand environmentally sound partners and purchases—a philosophy embodied by Sappi and LOE (Lustro Offset Environmental). It’s the ultimate sheet for flesh and earth tones with an excellent finish for fine detail and accurate color matching. With its 30% Post Consumer Waste,* FSC and SFI Chain of Custody certifications and its unusually high quality, you can feel good about not having to sacrifice a great look for environmental responsibility.


LOE boasts 30% PCW FSC and SFI Chain of Custody certifications. 100% of the electricity used to manufacture LOE is Green-e certified renewable energy.
*100lb and 120lb Cover weights contain a minimum of 20% Post Consumer Waste

A Trusted Brand

LOE is backed by an over 85-year reputation, starting with the introduction of Lustro Offset Enamel as the first coated paper and later, as LOE (Lustro Offset Environmental), the premium sheet with PCW. It's been the most specified paper of all time.

Unique Shades

LOE is offered in a neutral white shade—unique in a market dominated by blue-white offerings. Ideal for reproducing flesh tones and images requiring warmth and depth.


Superior ink hold out, tried and true surface uniformity and crisp definition provide noticeable pressroom results.

Giving Back

A portion of the proceeds from sales of LOE go to Living Lands and Waters, a 501(c)(3) environmental organization dedicated to aid in the protection, preservation and restoration of the natural environment of the nation's major rivers and their watersheds.
