Verso Expands Blazer Digital® Line to Meet Needs of Xerox® iGen® Series of Digital Presses

MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwired - Sep 14, 2015) -  Verso Corporation (NYSE: VRS), a leading producer of digital coated papers, announces the expansion of its Blazer Digital® economy digital coated paper offering with 10 new sheet sizes specifically designed for the Xerox® iGen4™, Xerox® iGen® 150 and new Xerox® iGen® 5 digital presses.

"Verso has been a leader in manufacturing digital papers since digital printing technology first emerged, with specialized expertise, dedicated production capacity and one of the broadest offerings of digital-specific products in the industry," states Mike Weinhold, Verso's Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Product Development. "Every one of our digital products is designed specifically for digital printing."

Blazer Digital® is an economical, coated digital paper with weight and finish choices similar to conventional folio formats. Offered in gloss and satin, text and cover weights, it provides good performance on dry and liquid toner, production color laser printers and digital offset technologies.

Verso continues to focus on the digital print market and align its grade offering to better meet the needs of digital press owners. With the growth of the Xerox iGen series, Verso has added 14.33" x 26" stocking sizes in 80 lb. and 100 lb. gloss and satin text and 26" x 14.33" stocking sizes in 80 lb., 100 lb. and 110 lb. gloss and satin cover to its Blazer Digital® offering. These new sizes are stocked in our warehouses and are readily available.

"These additional sheet sizes allow customers to diversify the type and size of high-end color printed materials using one of the industry's largest digital sheet sizes," said Dennis Essary, Verso's Director for Digital Papers. "It's now possible to digitally print collateral such as six-panel 8.5" x 11" tri-fold brochures, postcards and greeting cards, or extra large book covers and jackets with Verso's new 14.33" x 26" sheet size."

Along with the Blazer Digital® economy product, Verso offers premium digital products such as Futura®, Sterling® Premium Digital and Sterling® Premium Digital for HP Indigo, each with pleasing optics, exceptional surface quality and budget-friendly pricing, and Productolith Pts.
