Holmen EPIC is a wood-containing paper that is truly capable of replacing the wood-free alternatives, perfect for magazines and direct mail. The bulk properties of the paper enable a lighter grammage than expected.Order sample pack
Like all our papers, Holmen EPIC is based on fresh fibres. Paper made from fresh fibre has a strong advantage compared to recovered fibre: it has higher bulk. Thanks to the strength and elasticity of the fresh fibres, the paper is more voluminous. The feeling is great, sturdy yet pliable, when you touch or hold the printed material. In other words, the paper weighs less while remaining its thickness.
There are many benefits with high bulk. Since the paper weighs less you can buy fewer tonnes and still keep the same thickness as a regular paper. You can also add more pages while still buying the same amount of paper. Or you can get a thicker end product. Holmen EPIC is available in grammages up to 70 gsm.
In every way, Holmen EPIC is a brighter affair.
