The National Stationery Show has announced that Mohawk Superfine is the official paper of the 2016 NSS. Both Superfine and NSS are celebrating 70 years in the industry at the show, which takes place May 15 – 18, 2016 in New York. Introduced in 1946, Mohawk Superfine has long been celebrated for its quality, consistency and perfect printing surface. This flagship paper grade has become known as the finest uncoated text and cover paper for offset printing, letterpress printing, and as the benchmark in fine paper for digital printing. It is the paper of choice by designers, artists and authors worldwide.
Following a period of downward price pressure last year, the softwood pulp market stabilized in early 2016 and the outlook is now improving. As a result, a number of global price initiatives have already been announced.
“We know from experience that the spring is typically characterized by stronger demand than the start of the year, and that this is also a time for maintenance stoppages in Europe. That’s why we anticipate that the market will tighten even further”, said Magnus Björkman, President of Södra Cell International.In the expectation of a stronger global market and solid demand, Södra will increase its market price for NBSK deliveries in Europe to USD 810/tonne, effective from April 1st 2016.
