Agfa and Nekoosa Coated Products have announced today that they have entered into a converting and distribution partnership for the distribution of Synaps, Agfa’s premium offset synthetic paper, in the North American markets. Synaps features a luxurious look and feel on a strong, durable sheet that prints with ease using conventional inks on offset presses. Thanks to its unique qualities, Synaps makes synthetic printing possible for all commercial offset printers.
Agfa is confident that it has found a great partner in Nekoosa Coated Products for the distribution of Synaps in North America, as they have a solid reputation for selling high-quality specialty paper products.
Synaps is available immediately in a wide range of weights and sizes, with sheet sizes as large as 59″ x 81″, through Nekoosa’s network of distributors in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
Because Synaps does not require special inks and also accepts a wide range of finishing processes, printing is easy and efficient. Commercial printers appreciate its exceptionally fast drying time and antistatic properties, which are unmatched by any competitor. With Synaps, high throughput and quick turnaround are everyday realities.
The unique look and feel of Synaps complements its beautiful imaging qualities. Synaps is also waterproof, tear-resistant, and weather-resistant, making it ideal for many indoor and outdoor applications such as menus, brochures, signage, and maps.
