Sustana FSC®

Whether it’s jokes or paper, we love recycling! Made of 100% post-consumer waste, FSC® certified, and manufactured with renewable biogas energy, this reliable, recycled uncoated paper is ideal for commercial printing. Its smooth finish makes it an eco-friendly alternative that displays an impeccable look and rich color quality every time.

About Sustana FSC Recycled Uncoated Paper

Looking to source a supply of some super sustainable substrate? We won’t keep you in suspense: Sustana FSC is a sustainable recycled uncoated paper known for its high PCW composition! Check out the three types we offer.

First up is EnviroPrint™, which is known for its impressive 100% PCW and is manufactured with renewable biogas energy (sort of like when you eat too many beans at dinner). Even though uncoated paper tends to be rougher than coated paper, EnviroPrint™ is smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy (though, it doesn’t go as well on a PB&J)! It just goes to show that you don’t have to give up good looking printing to feel good about the environmental impact of your paper.

Then there’s the luxurious EnviroSatin™, which also clocks in at 100% PCW and is manufactured using biogas energy. It might sound like a show-off, but with a satin finish and those environmental credentials, this uncoated hybrid paper really does have it all!

Finally, there’s Opaque® True White Smooth, and you’ll never guess what it’s known for! Maybe you can guess: a gorgeous white color, high opacity, and smoothness, despite being uncoated, just as the name suggests. It’s also made from 30% PCW so it can still be in the Sustana FSC sustainability club

Frequently Asked Questions about Sustana FSC

What is special about Sustana FSC recycled uncoated paper products?

When Sustana FSC products go for eco-friendliness, they commit! While a paper or paperboard product can reduce its environmental impact by being composed of even 10% PCW, Sustana FSC products say, “Hold my beer.” Sustana FSC Opaque® True White Smooth uncoated paper takes it to the next level, with a minimum of 30% PCW, an intense whiteness, and opacity you won’t believe!

Then, we’ve got the Sustana FSC overachievers, EnviroPrint™ and EnviroSatin™, which both have an incredible 100% PCW, while still giving you the aesthetics and high performance you’re looking for in a premium paper. Now that’s something you don’t see every day!

What is PCW?

PCW could stand for a lot of things: Pretty Clear Weather, Particularly Cute Walrus, Potatoes Chew Well… For us, though, PCW stands for “post-consumer waste,” and it means it is composed of materials that were once used by someone else. Can you really make premium paper out of that kind of material? Absolutely! In fact, Case Paper carries many FSC-certified papers and paperboards, all measuring up to our high standards of quality as a premium supplier.

What does the FSC stand for in Sustana FSC?

We know that on a company blog we shouldn’t say the “f” word, but we simply can’t resist: Forest! FSC stands for “Forest Stewardship Council.” It’s an international nonprofit organization with a U.S. division, and the FSC’s job is to oversee the use of forests, ensuring they are managed responsibly and that natural resources are conserved. Without healthy forests, we don’t have quality paper. Simple as that.

When you see an FSC label on a product, it means that treating forests with respect was an important part of its creation. FSC-certified paper ensures minimal environmental impact during its creation. So, choose FSC-labeled paper and feel good knowing you’re making a sustainable choice.

Would uncoated paper like Sustana be the best choice for my project, or do I need coated paper?

Fun fact: coated paper is usually just paper that has a puffy coat to help it stay warm in the winter. In this case, though, it’s paper with an additional layer added on to provide a smoother finish or another specialized functionality. It can provide certain benefits that uncoated paper cannot, but both coated and uncoated paper have useful benefits for printing—it usually depends on the product. 

When should you choose uncoated paper versus coated paper? It depends on the purpose of your printing. If you’re printing something that needs vibrant graphics to be the star of the show, that’s often a job for coated paper’s smooth finish and low ink absorption. 

On the other hand, if you’re planning to print a novel, with tons of text and not much in the way of imagery, uncoated paper is a good bet! Furthermore, there can be a benefit of the higher ink absorption you get with the rougher surface of uncoated paper. That is that if you’re printing something like a journal, where you expect people will write on the pages after they are printed, uncoated paper, like Sustana FSC products, makes a better writing surface. 

I’d like to order some Sustana FSC recycled uncoated paper. How do I do that? 

All you need to know is: talk to a Case Paper representative! Case Paper believes that talking to a real human is the best way to order paper products. Your Case Paper representative will explain our process, get the details of your project, and help you determine which of our products would be the best choice for you. They can give you a quote, give you the shipping details, and place your order. Just sit back and enjoy chatting with some of the coolest paper and board experts on the planet! Much better than dealing with some AI chatbot, in our opinion. Although… how do we know we’re not AI? Are we all part of a simulation? Or some giant mega computer? Is anything real? Regardless—we can help you order, just reach out. Even if we all live in a computer simulation.
