In addition to the Wide Format Xerographic paper, we also sell a variety of other Rite in the Rain product: such as pens, notebooks, binders and small format paper
- RECYCLABILITY – In spite of the durability, it is totally recyclable as standard paper, which is untrue of synthetic, or poly coated papers. Simply recycle it as you do other white or printed papers.
- POST-CONSUMER RECYCLED MATERIALS – The unique “Polydura” cover and reference card substrate contains post-consumer recycled materials and is recyclable. (Recycled milk, shampoo bottles, etc.)
- ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF MANUFACTURING PROCESS – The process involved in the manufacture of the paper was designed to have ultra-low impact on the environment. The water based coating process emits only steam and all mill off-cuts are recycled back into the paper-manufacturing stream. 100% of printing inks are soy based.
- RECYCLED FIBRE CONTENT – Rite in the Rain All-Weather Writing Paper is a patented substrate created for use in outdoor writing situations. Since this paper is designed for use in extreme conditions it is manufactured with the most durable yet recyclable components available. Recycled content pulp, as a result of the repulping & reprocessing involved in recycling, produces a “weaker” substrate due to the shortened fibres. This inherent weakness reduces the field-durability of paper and as such is not used in the manufacture of the paper. It is one of the rare instances where virgin fibre adds significantly to the end-product function. Papers designed for “office or indoor” uses do not require this strength and as such can contain recycled fibre. This all being said, the wood fibres they utilize for Rite in the Rain are purchased from FSC Certified sources. By doing this it insures the product is manufactured with high environmental and social standards and practices.
ARCHIVAL FOR SURVIVAL
Rite in the Rain papers meet the archival criteria laid out by ANSI/NISO Z39.48-1992 (R2002). This means that it is an archival quality paper and will last several hundred years under normal use. So… not only will it survive the elements, it will survive the attic! All their books and copier papers are made from these grades.
