Novalith™ FSC®

Novalith™ Gloss sure is one high performing paper! Super smooth and superior ink holdout make this effective and consistent on the press. We’re talking 1996-Seattle-SuperSonics-Gary-Payton-defensive-player-of-the-year effective and consistent on the press.

Don’t let the “dull” fool you, this is an oldie-but-goodie. Novalith™ is to Dull as Simon is to Garfunkel—a smooth duo with such (ink) staying power, it might even change Mrs. Robinson’s mind.

FAQ About Our FSC-Certified Gloss Coated Paper and Dull Coated Paper  Named Novalith

1. What is Novalith all about?

Novalith FSC’s best features are its finishes. Available in dull or gloss, it is a versatile and reliable coated paper with the ink holdout you can depend on to deliver consistent results, plus 91 brightness. Also, Novalith FSC is available from our Miami and Los Angeles locations, so it’s got the versatility to fit in anywhere and always looks good. 

2. When do I need coated paper, instead of uncoated?

When it’s cold outside! Seriously, though, your paper needs a coat if you want a smooth surface with minimal ink absorption, bringing your imagery to life. Uncoated paper absorbs ink, has a rougher texture, and is better for situations where people will write on the final product, such as if you are printing a survey. Uncoated paper also works for projects where you are printing a lot of text on the paper. If you’re not sure what you want, we’re here with all the paper advice you could ask for. 

3. Should I choose gloss coated paper or dull coated paper?

It depends on the look you want. Gloss paper is aptly named: it’s glossy! Dull coated paper might sound boring, but it’s actually a lot of fun once you get to know it. In this case, “dull” just means that the finish isn’t shiny like a gloss finish. So, which should you choose for your project? It all comes down to the appearance of the finished product. 

4. What are some typical or recommended applications for Novalith FSC?

Novalith FSC is a great choice if you want to print museum maps, children’s books, or yearbooks. Just imagine those smooth pages with vibrantly printed graphics, whether they’re spaceships, dinosaurs, or the homecoming court. That’s all Novalith FSC.

5. What do I need to know about the ordering process?  How do I find out important details such as price, shipping costs, order minimum, and more?

Let’s get to know each other! Case Paper’s friendly representatives are already to give you all the details to make the ordering process smooth sailing. We can quote prices, answer questions, explain shipping, make sure you’re choosing the right product for your project, and name all the state capitals blindfolded! (No one’s ever asked for that last one, but if someone does, we’ll at least give it a try.) The key takeaway here is that while our website provides lots of helpful information, when you need the real scoop, you want to talk to a real human. That’s us. Reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help you with any questions you have! 

6. What does FSC certification mean? What do I need to know about the environmental friendliness of Novalith FSC?

Who puts the FSC in Novalith FSC? It’s the Forest Stewardship Council, a non-profit organization that works with stakeholders around the world to ensure conservation of forests is prioritized as their materials are harvested for uses such as papermaking. FSC certification shows that a product is made of materials that come from what FSC calls “responsibly managed forests.” Basically, this means that when you order Novalith FSC, you don’t have to wonder whether any forests were destroyed to make it. The FSC label tells you that the forests were respected in the process. 

Also, Novalith FSC is made from 10% PCW (post-consumer waste). Turning something discarded into something new and beautiful? That’s the kind of sustainability Case Paper takes to heart and proudly provides. It lines up with our 3 Ps of sustainability: Planet, People, and Purpose, which are at the center of everything that we do.
