Paper

Case Western Reserve has selected specific papers that best represent the brand: McCoy by Sappi, a coated sheet, and Cougar Super Smooth by Domtar, an uncoated sheet.

McCoy is a bright-white sheeta versatile paper to which many techniques and varnishes can be applied. It provides highlights and sparkle for powerful imagery, and the choice of finishes provide reflection and shine, understated elegance or softness coupled with low-glare readability. McCoy also suits our brand and our commitment to sustainability because it is 10 percent post-consumer waste, elemental chlorine free and Forest Stewardship Council certified. FSC certification means that all steps in the process of making the paperfrom tree to printerare in compliance with the FSC’s guidelines for economic, social and environmental concerns.

Cougar Super Smooth is a premium uncoated printing paper long-revered for value and performance. It touts a stellar 98 brightness and a balanced white shade with 10 percent post-consumer content. The paper is FSC certified.

One exception to the use of these papers is formal invitations. While McCoy and Cougar Super Smooth certainly can be used for invitations, any other type of white paper also is acceptable. Learn more about designing formal invitations.
