Debut for Swanline Paper & Board at Sign & Digital UK

Swanline Paper & Board, the recently launched materials division of Swanline Print, will make its event debut with a new range of sustainable substrates at Sign & Digital UK (taking place on April 19-21 at the NEC Birmingham), the UK’s premier sign making, display solutions and digital printing event.

Visitors to Stand H54 will find themselves surrounded by a vista of market-leading graphics that represent the unique proposition from Swanline through its linked supply chain of Swanline Paper & Board, Swanline Print and the joint venture business Corrboard – a manufacturer of corrugated board. The company will be showcasing an impressive new range of products under the Cygnus banner, including single face corrugated, litho top liners, folding box boards, display boards, foam PVC, smooth twin-wall polypropylene and aluminium composite, amongst others.

The company is especially excited about the launch of its Cygnus Display Board that will be unveiled at the show. An FSC certified double-sided coated product, the Cygnus board is ideal for digital printing since its unique manufacturing process gives it excellent stability, ensuring the board remains flat throughout the process.

Swanline Paper & Board is particularly proud of its commitment to providing ‘cost neutral sustainability’ across much of its product range. Managing director, Ross Griffin, explained: “Sustainability is becoming a massive focus for the printing and packaging sector and buy-in from customers is almost universal. However, environmentally friendly solutions have often proved to be more expensive than regular equivalents so companies have had to make a hard choice. That’s where we come in.

“Even as Swanline was being established we made the conscious decision to take a stand for sustainability by focusing on products that could meet industry demands not only in terms of performance, flexibility and innovation, but also from an eco-friendly angle – but for the same or lower cost as the traditional equivalents. The response so far has been incredible and we’re delighted that Sign & Digital will give us the opportunity to show many more organisations how they can make the most of cost neutral sustainability in substrates.”

Swanline Print is the specialist 100 per cent trade-only services provider to the corrugated packaging and point-of-sale markets. The launch of its new Paper & Board division created a linked supply chain offered by no other UK merchant, enabling customers to benefit from this synergy and multi-million pound investments in technology made by the group.

The company invests in specialist machinery and has a team of experts – including an award-winning constructional design team – on hand to advise every step of the way and help to enhance the quality and turnaround time of any POS or packaging project.
