MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Verso Corporation (NYSE: VRS), a leading producer of digital coated papers, today announced that the company will display its brighter, whiter digital coated paper portfolio as a Gold partner at Dscoop’s «Imagine» 2017 Conference March 1 through 4 in Phoenix, Arizona.

«Our customers have been asking for better optics without increasing their cost or compromising press performance or image reproduction,» said Verso President of Graphic Papers Mike Weinhold. «We increased the brightness and whiteness of our entire digital paper portfolio to be brilliantly brighter – elevating it to a level unparalleled in the industry.»

Verso increased the brightness of Sterling® Premium Digital™ and Sterling® Premium Digital™ for HP Indigo from a 94 to 96 brightness and Blazer Digital® and Productolith Pts. Digital® from a 90 to 92 brightness. These products will be displayed and samples available in Verso’s booth #907 during the conference.

«The quality of digital printing has significantly improved since Verso first introduced Futura®, our premier performance brand over 20 years ago and we continue to innovate,» said Verso Director for Digital Papers Dennis Essary. «We are excited to share our product enhancements with the attendees of Dscoop as they look for reliable paper performance and service solutions that meet today’s digital reproduction quality requirements and innovative print techniques. Now, anything that can be done in offset printing can be done digitally, from the use of metallic toners or match colors to varnish-like coatings.»

Verso’s digital papers are known for optimal performance on dry toner and HP Indigo printers, color and black and white laser printers, and digital offset technologies. They are guaranteed for high performance on all production laser equipment and digital offset, and are specifically guaranteed for the Xerox iGen series and the HP Indigo and Kodak NexPress certified by Rochester Institute of Technology.

Verso’s digital papers are precision cut to prevent paper edge bonding jams and duplex registration issues. Strict quality control yields ultra-clean paper, reducing paper dust contamination and increasing print productivity and equipment life. Verso digital papers are available as ream wrapped, carton packed or skid packed and are vapor barrier wrapped to prevent moisture absorption that can lead to curling and jamming in digital equipment.

All Verso digital paper products are made in the U.S. and comply with Lacey Act requirements.
