Somerset Web

Use high-volume printing to create powerful pieces that are sure to be in high demand.

Somerset Web is perfect for publishers, direct mailers, catalogers and printers, because it’s prepared to deliver in a big way to some pretty big audiences. It’s made stronger with more bulk and fewer splices, which is just one of the reasons it’s ideal for high-volume printing. Plus, the process also creates a smoother surface that keeps ink sitting high for superior hold-out and print gloss, providing rich imagery to maximize the brand experience.
