YUPOBlue, a premier synthetic paper optimized specifically for HP Indigo presses, carries a three-star certification rating from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). It is produced in 5.9, 8, 9.9, 11.6 and 13.8 mil thicknesses, all of which are available from xpedx. Unlike other synthetic substrates for HP Indigo presses, YUPOBlue does not require surface treatment prior to printing, saving both time and money. Its soft, tactile quality has the look and feel of a luxurious silk paper. Among synthetics, YUPOBlue offers superior dimensional stability and is 100 percent recyclable, waterproof, and tear and stain resistant.
