conVerd LLC and Finch Paper LLC announce the two companies are partnering to produce substrates for digital wide-format, screen, and commercial applications that require full-color quality with an environmental platform. The foundation of the relationship is the companies' mutual interest in creating recyclable, renewable products.

Previous joint developments include conVerd Enviroboard, an environmentally responsible substrate for the wide-format signage market. The Intl. Sign Assn. (ISA) granted Enviroboard the “Green Product of 2010” designation. Enviroboard is made with FSC-certified fiber and includes 10% post-consumer waste fiber. It is made from renewable resources and is 100% recyclable.

This closer relationship supports conVerd's environmental position and affords the company access to Finch's expertise in paper manufacturing and forest stewardship; as well as providing it with the supply chain management necessary to meet growing demand among large distributors, retailers and printers.
