Tango® Advantage Challenge: MWV's Coated Cover a Cut Above the Competition

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) -  Seeing is believing. After witnessing a head-to-head printing test against competitive board and coated cover products under identical printing conditions, more than 100 top U.S. printers agree that Tango® Advantage coated cover delivers better ink holdout, dot fidelity and runnability, resulting in a better printed image.

MeadWestvaco's Commercial Printing business (NYSE: MWV) started offering the Tango Advantage Challenge two years ago to provide tangible evidence of the product's superior runnability, printability and consistency. The undeniable results have made believers out of the most respected printers nationwide. 

Tango Advantage offers better printability as proven by superior performance characteristics, and an ultra smooth surface for consistency. With clean-white styling that delivers crisper colors and sharper contrast, while maintaining optimal color fidelity on press, Tango Advantage becomes the preferred choice for any printed application where quality, performance and value truly matter.

"The Tango Advantage line was developed to enable printers to produce better, more lifelike, printed images, but we also continued to emphasize what printers tell us is important to them: flawless on-press performance," says Kevin Clark, vice president/general manager, Commercial Printing Business, MWV. "Tango delivers on our promise time and time again… this level of reliability is extremely valuable to our customers."

MWV's Tango Advantage coated cover matching line of paper grades meets almost all marketing and printing needs, for the most demanding customers and challenging orders. For brand owners, printers and merchants looking for a paper stock that optimizes printing and converting productivity, Tango Advantage is proven quality, performance and value.

The Tango Advantage family of products are certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) for Land Management and Wood Procurement and endorsed by The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certifications (PEFC) schemes, the world's largest forest certification system.
