In the future, the expansion of the product portfolio in the business area Graphical Options will also provide printing houses with a broader range for a variety of end uses. Printers can now benefit from an innovation in the Exceo basis weights range of 170 to 250 g/m²: The product characteristics were optimized so that the printed material no longer has to be prepared for the folding.
