conVerd LLC and Finch Paper LLC today announce that the two companies are partnering to produce substrates for digital wide-format, screen, and commercial applications that require full-color quality with an environmental platform. The foundation of the relationship is the companies' mutual interest in creating recyclable, renewable products. The announcement was made at GlobalShop, where conVerd is exhibiting in booth #827 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, today through March 30, 2011.
Previous joint developments include conVerd Enviroboard, an environmentally responsible substrate for the wide-format signage market, which is otherwise dominated by fossil-fuel based products. Enviroboard garnered significant interest since its debut and is quickly becoming the number one source of sustainable rigid media. The product was also granted the Green Product of 2010, by the International Sign Association (ISA).
Enviroboard is made with FSC-certified fiber and includes 10 percent post-consumer waste fiber. Unlike most substrates used for signage, Enviroboard is made from renewable resources and is 100 percent recyclable.
This closer relationship supports conVerd's environmental position and affords the company access to Finch's expertise in paper manufacturing and forest stewardship; as well as providing it with the supply chain management necessary to meet growing demand among large distributors, retailers and printers.
