Rolland
 

A leader in the field of fine specialty paper manufactured to meet the highest environmental standards, Rolland produces papers using biogas energy and up to 100% recycled content.

Since 2007, we've been providing Rolland's recycled papers at the same price as regular virgin fine paper. This was the first offer of its kind in Canada.

The Marquis UV Press

Unlike conventional presses, the Marquis UV press requires no fossil fuel or solvents for ink drying, which eliminates the emission of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere.

Compared to a traditional press, it allows us to reduce paper waste by up to 88% during makeready.

With this new press, ultraviolet (UV) rays are used to dry the ink, which instantly goes from liquid to solid.

Because it crystallizes the ink on the surface of the paper, the UV process allows for the use of porous paper, such as recycled and uncoated products, while guaranteeing vibrant colours and exceptional image quality.

Marquis' eco-friendly papers

 

We offer a wide range of papers containing 30% to 100% recycled material. As an example of our commitment, since February 2007, Marquis has been offering its 100% recycled paper, Enviro 100, at the same price as its regular fine paper! This offer, which in 2007 was the first of its kind in the country, made it possible for many Canadian publishers to be greener. What's more, it's still available!

Also check out one of our best eco-friendly papers: Marquis Opaque, an affordable high-quality paper used for commercial printing on web or sheet-fed presses. It's a great alternative to coated papers for documents of higher quality and prestige thanks to its excellent opacity, remarkable whiteness and superb smoothness.

Marquis Opaque contains post-consumer fibre and is manufactured using renewable biogas energy. The paper is certified FSC™ and EcoLogo.

ECO CALCULATOR

Striving for greater sustainability means adopting everyday actions that have a more positive impact on the environment. Since 2007, Marquis has been using and recommending to its customers many types of recycled paper. Thanks to the eco calculator developed in partnership with Rolland, we are able to measure this positive environmental impact.

Here are the 2019 savings results:
