Saint-Jérôme, Québec, November 26, 2013 – Cascades has been once again rewarded at the Canadian Printing Awards with two Gold Awards, the first for Most Environmentally Progressive Vendor and the second for Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Technology for its new Cascades Enviro Jet paper.
The Canadian Printing Awards acknowledges excellence in quality printing, environmental initiatives and industry contribution. Most Environmentally Progressive Vendor has been granted to Cascades for its ongoing efforts. From innovative new products and third party certifications to ecological production processes, this award recognizes the company’s concrete involvement and substantial benefits to the environment.
The newly launched Cascades Enviro Jet has also been rewarded as the Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Technology. This paper is the first and only inkjet substrate with 100% post-consumer fiber made in North America which allows paper users to be colorful, productive and green. According to Normand Champagne, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Cascades Fine Papers Group, “Cascades Enviro Jet was a real challenge for our development team as we wanted to offer a competitive ecological sheet that prints vivid colors and performs on the different types of inkjet presses. Mission accomplished!”
As per Jon Robinson, Editor of PrintAction magazine, “This year’s Canadian Printing Awards program was our most successful to date, in terms of the number and quality of entries submitted from across the country.
