The Hop-Syn sales team invites interested parties to call 1-800-524-0757 for a comparison chart or for expert advice about printing on the Hop-Syn durable substrate.
“When given the option, retailers and their print partners choose environmentally-friendly substrates like Hop-Syn synthetic paper, especially when the print quality is superior and the price point is better than other durable substrates,” comments Jack Smith, Senior Vice President, Hop Industries.
High Quality Results
Hop-Syn TO is the leading blockout substrate used by big brands and their print partners. Retailers request it for their double sided point-of-purchase displays and in-store promotions. Print partners value its high dyne level and clay composition, which makes it easy to print via offset, screen, latex, LED or UV inkjet. Hop-Syn’s smooth matte finish ensures thorough ink absorption and prevents scuffing, scratching and cracking when exposed to direct sunlight — up to one year outdoors.
Hop-Syn TO is made from a mixture of polypropylene resin and calcium carbonate. The synthetic paper is durable, tear resistant, and can be easily die-cut, sewn and grommeted, without any pretreatment or lamination. Hop-Syn TO comes in a wide range of roll widths and sheet sizes.
