every day that something so new, yet so natural, is introduced into the paper
world. Is it any wonder then, that even a longtime lumberjack like Jack would
be surprised about something as astonishing as PaperWood, the new woodsy

to achieving design success, just be sure to leaf through the rest of PaperView
for a more solid summary of PaperWood.
Pumpkins and paper sounds like some kind of preschooler's October art project,
doesn't it? Actually, it's a partial description of a unique forest products company
that gives a totally new meaning to the phrase "down to earth." Whether
it's pumpkins or paper, virtually every product produced by Lenderink
Technologies Inc. comes straight from the ground.
course, not many forest products companies can offer products ranging from pumpkins
to paper like PaperWood, but then again not many forest products companies
are like Lenderink. Located about 156 miles west of Detroit, the Belmont, Michigan
parent firm was started in 1970. Today, Lenderink offers many items including
plywood, wood veneers, Christmas trees, and potted yard trees.
wood materials, Lenderink also produces a gigantic variety of adhesives for paper,
veneers, wood, leather, and textiles. And, when you'd like to just relax on a
beautiful fall afternoon, Lenderink even offers trout fishing on their own 15
acre lake! To hook your new clients, however, you should definitely consider PaperWood,
Lenderink's newest product. An unusual, environmentally-friendly material that
prints just like conventional papers, PaperWood is made from veneer.
is simply a thin sheet of wood of uniform thickness that has been rotary-cut from
a log. Micro-thin sheets of veneer between .005" and .008" thick are
used to make PaperWood. First, a patented process treats the veneer with
special EPA approved resins to improve printability. Next, the veneer sheet has
paper laminated to it or is mounted to another veneer to make a two ply sheet
in either a natural, high, or low gloss finish. According to Tom Lenderink, making
PaperWood uses less chemicals as well as less electricity than manufacturing
regular papers and uses no virgin timber.
month's edition of PaperView is printed on Lenderink's PaperWood.
Although ten different wood species are stocked in many standard sizes, PaperWood
can also easily be produced using other species in flexible order quantities.
Eastern Red Cedar is the line's most popular offering. Announcements, business
cards, certificates, folders, greeting cards, invitations, postcards, and even
stationery can all be easily printed on PaperWood. When your printed pieces
need a natural look, pick PaperWood!

A look at
the people who make, market and use paper...
forests involve much more than just images of the Camp Fire Girls and Smokey the
Bear. For years, however, the public's perception of forests didn't appear to
focus on anything more serious than campouts and cookouts. Now, it seems almost
everyone has an opinion on such highly politicized forestry issues like clear
cutting and limits on public access. To develop a greater understanding of today's
critical forest issues, PaperView recently spoke with Milt Reinke, former
Chief State Forester for Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources (DNR). In
an interview with PaperView conducted in his hometown of Madison, WI, Milt
shared some of his insights into the forestry world.
to the chief: Milt Reinke, former Chief State Forester, Wisconsin DNR.
What would you say was your toughest challenge in managing forests and does that
same hurdle exist today?
One of the biggest challenges back then was getting more timber produced because
of a lack of foresters. The big problem now is probably the DNR's organizational
structure. The Chief State Forester doesn't have the authority anymore to order
anyone in the field.
There seems to be a lot of misinformation and half-truths clouding recent battles
between environmentalists and the paper and wood products industry. What's your
take on the situation?
Between 1984 and 1996, Wisconsin forests grew by 650,000 acres, but there are
still huge philosophical differences between environmentalists and the forest
industries. Overall though, I'd say there's very good stewardship of the land
by most private and public enterprises today.
Do you believe there is a greater or lesser appreciation for the environment than
when you retired from the DNR in 1986?
Now, there's a much greater appreciation for the environment as long as it's based
When you flew around the state inspecting forests, you had a pilot named Kenny
Beghin. Any flight escapades you'd care to comment on?
I've flown with a lot of people, and some scare the hell out of you, but not Kenny.
Once, we were in a storm with ice hitting the propellers, but we made it thanks
to Kenny's skills.
A look at
the historical development of paper...
A Newstand Near You!
Massachusetts, 1704: After publishing only one issue, the newspaper Publick Occurences
Both Foreign and Domestick was shut down within four days by British authorities
in 1690. Some fourteen years later, John Campbell introduced The Boston News-Letter.
Campbell's new paper was the first regularly published newspaper in the American
colonies. Later, other newspapers like the New England Courant began to flourish
in Boston. The Courant's publisher, James Franklin, employed his brother Benjamin.
It: The polygraph, one of the first devices to duplicate documents, was invented
by Englishman John Isaac Hawkins in 1803. The machine consisted of two to five
pens connected by adjustable rods resting on sheets of paper.
Soy: Besides reducing emissions of VOCs, soy-based inks create a more consistent
dot pattern and better solids on paper.
Night Football: According to the league office, the average NFL playbook ranges
from 500 to 1,000 8-1/2x11 pages of paper per book, depending on the team.
