MEMPHIS, Tenn.

“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.
