The interior pages are being printed on a new stock — Rolland Enviro100 Satin — so I am here at Prolific in Winnipeg to press check. So far, everything looks great on this paper. Though it is 100% post consumer recycled and uncoated, its satin finish performs almost like a coated stock. Everything is more vibrant with less dot gain than on the previous stock we used.

Though I was fond of our previous stock, it didn't have any recycled content. With the switch in paper we're saving resources and achieving better print results.
