To be in with a chance of winning customers need to place an order, trial or sample request for International Paper’s Alaska Plus or Arktika products before the 25 March to be entered into a prize draw to win.
Commenting on the Easter promotion, the Kent-based speciality paper and cartonboard supplier’s managing director, Neil Skelton, said: “Together with International Paper we are giving our customers the chance to try some great products and win an Easter treat.”
Launched in July 2014, Alaska Plus is a multi-ply virgin fibre coated board, with a double coating on the top side and an uncoated manila back-side. Alaska Plus is available in basis weights ranging from 190 – 330g/m².
Alaska Plus is said to provide both cost saving and environmental benefits; the weight of the packaging is reduced. This enables end users to save money by either; paying less for the same amount of end product, or producing more for the same cost. Chapelton said that savings are also made on transportation as wastage is reduced, lowering the environmental impact of the product.
Manufactured alongside Alaska Plus is International Paper’s Arktika, a high quality, fully coated GC1 Folding Boxboard product with a coated reverse side. Arktika is used primarily for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, greetings cards, publishing and commercial printing. Arktika is available in a wide range of basis weights and stock sizes ranging from 200 – 350g/m².
Alaska Plus and Arktika are available as FSC & PEFC certified and are produced from virgin fibre to ensure a consistent quality of the board. In addition, Arktika and Alaska Plus are ISEGA certified allowing for dry and fatty food applications, and PTS/FFPI certified for inkjet and laser coding on pharmaceutical packaging.
