Astrobrights®

Astrobrights® Fluorescent Papers are easy to print on when following these simple hints. It is recommended to pre-test all printing procedures prior to press time to ensure the desired results are achieved.

OFFSET INKS:

Print Astrobrights like any conventional uncoated paper. We recommend heat resistant, wax free ink if you plan to follow lithography with xerographic or laser printing technologies.

HANDLING:

Keep Astrobrights products wrapped until the moment of printing. It is essential to let the paper acclimatize, for a minimum of 24 hours – longer during cold weather – in the press room while still wrapped in mill packaging. Keep Astrobrights products covered during drying, between passes and prior to any finishing work. Pressroom conditions should be as close as possible to 68 degrees, and 45-60% relative humidity.

VARNISH:

Varnish or aqueous coating is optional as a surface protector or to achieve varnish effects. Pre-test all varnishes or coatings for compatibility.

FOLDING AND SCORING:

To properly score and fold Astrobrights, use a 2 point rounded rule. For the channel, it is recommended to use a minimum width of 2.5 times the caliper of the sheet to be scored, plus 28/1000”. Always pretest any procedures prior to production.

BINDING:

Astrobrights is suitable for all standard binding processes. It is important to plan for proper grain direction in all binding applications. Grain direction should run parallel to the spine for optimum results.

FOIL STAMPING:

It is recommended to pretest foils to find the best release, time and temperature for the size of the foil stamp and color of foil for each specific job.

ASTROBRIGHTS CONTAIN WATER SOLUBLE DYES:

It is not recommended for products where moisture or light may cause bleeding or fading of dyes.

LASER AND INKJET GUARANTEED:

On 60 and 70 lb. text and 65 lb. cover items, subject to printer restrictions.

A classroom staple

My first ream of black copy paper was given to me and I had no idea what to do with it, but I was heartbroken when the package was empty. When displaying student work or posting learning strategies, backing pages with this crisp, clean, black paper gives everything a finished look, unifying everything on the walls. A ream lasts years, so it's a worthwhile investment!

This product met my photo album needs

I was looking for an archivally safe product to use in my photo albums. This product met those needs, including being of the right heft for utilizing photo corners. I should point out that I use polyester album pages, so that the entire rigidity is not held solely on the shoulders of the paper. If it were, I would use a heavier grade.

Outstanding quality of paper

I use this product for "quilling" also known as filgree and black is a difficult color to find. I use only the finest quality paper for my quilling projects and pride myself on the quality of my work. The fact that I use only very high quality paper for these projects,is a trade make my friends, family and cusotmers have come to expect.
