Crescendo® C1S Paperboard

Unsurpassed for runnability, printability, and consistency, Crescendo® paperboard combines high brightness and clean-white styling with a smooth glossy surface that makes it the preferred choice to convey luxury and premium quality.

Features and benefits

Superior runnability
Crescendo® paperboard offers outstanding ink holdout, sheet cleanliness and consistency in graphical or packaging jobs to help manufacturers optimize productivity to exceed customer expectations.

Clean, white styling

Its distinctive clean white styling delivers crisper colors and sharper contrast while maintaining high color fidelity on press—and produces eye catching graphics that demand attention. For Crescendo C1S, the uncoated backside styling matches the coated side for consistent visual appeal. 

Smooth surface
Crescendo’s smooth surface delivers a visual aesthetic that denotes high quality. It has a full double-coating on the front, complemented by a super smooth uncoated side for a quality image front to back. 

Quality, tactile feel
Its unique fiber mix and finishing process result in high stiffness for a finished piece that feels as good as it looks.

Fade resistanceColor fast dyes provide fade resistance, sharper graphic images and truer color reproduction for shelf life and color integrity.
