in her rainbow dress, Brenda strode confidently to the microphone to present the
award for Best Animated Film. Suddenly, Brenda became quite flustered. The envelope
she was opening to announce the winner looked like it was made of ...
someone at the academy simply decided to jazz up the awards ceremony by using
multi-colored envelopes? Or had Brenda's agent secretly slipped in the cutely
coordinated envelope in a desperate attempt to jump start Brenda's faltering film
career and propel her to movie stardom? Who really knows? But you should definitely
know about the power of Tropical Blends, the rainbow looking paper that
can star brilliantly in your next print project.
Like a rainbow, it's true: Tropical Blends is colorful, beautiful, and
oh so sixties, too!
over the rainbow, you'll surely be able to use Tropical Blends. It'll make
your own designs shine, your clients animated, and if the stars are aligned just
right, perhaps even earn a pot of gold for lucky you. Just be sure to read the
rest of PaperView for a more reflective review of Tropical Blends.
fall of 1871, many parts of Illinois and Wisconsin were so dry that even the leaves
on the trees were having trouble changing color. Then, on the night of October
8, 1871, the history of two Midwestern cities changed forever when two terrifying
fires, hundreds of miles apart, broke out at the same time.
the Great Chicago Fire burned wildly out of control, destroying much of Chicago's
downtown, tiny Peshtigo, Wisconsin, also went up in flames. Unfortunately, most
emergency efforts in the Midwest were directed towards Chicago while Peshtigo
suffered in solitude.
badly burned, Chicago and Peshtigo were not beaten and gradually recovered. With
a strategic location near Green Bay, Peshtigo was the perfect place for papermaking.
In the late 1800's, Peshtigo Pulp and Paper began operations. The mill's name
changed to Badger
Paper Mills in 1929.
Badger Paper is light years away from that fateful fall evening in 1871. The fires
still burn brightly at Peshtigo's paper mill, but only in the figurative sense.
Innovation fires Badger's latest history. According to Badger's Mark Neumann,
Vice President of Sales, the mill was at somewhat of a crossroads in the mid-nineties,
offering primarily commodity grades in an increasingly brutal market dominated
by larger competitors. "If we hadn't started the 5 year plan in 1996 to move
into specialty papers like Tropical Blends, we wouldn't be around today."
aggressive turnaround plan has produced not only profits, but specialty products
that continue to surge in popularity. Envirographic Bond/Offset is America's number
one used recycled xerographic paper. The mill's flexible packaging facility produces
printed polyethylene bags of all shapes and sizes. Badger also offers printing
of paper, film, and wax papers.
month's edition of PaperView is printed on Badger's Tropical Blends.
