Celebrating the 15-year success story of PRO-DESIGN®

In 2017, International Paper marked the 15th anniversary of its PRO-DESIGN brand. Since coming onto the market PRO-DESIGN has established itself as a top-shelf product for full color, high quality, laser print applications.

Taking advantage of developments in high-speed inkjet technology, the PRO-DESIGN now provides the inkjet market with the same outstanding results that professional laser printers have depended on for a decade and a half.

This optimization thus expands options for the professional printing industry, and for desktop and office printer users too. To highlight this 15-year milestone, PRO-DESIGN now comes wrapped inside new, more elegant and modern packaging – showing the True Power of Design.

Now with ColorLok® technology

Long the proven choice for professional laser printers, PRO-DESIGN is now optimized to offer excellent results for high-speed inkjet printing as well. The key? ColorLok® technology incorporated into the paper during manufacturing. During printing ColorLok® interacts with the ink pigments to “lock” them at the surface.

In an inkjet printer, PRO-DESIGN with ColorLok® provides more vivid colors, bolder and sharper blacks, faster drying time and reduced smearing. For laser printing, it delivers consistent sheet moisture content and surface smoothness. And the standard filler particle size reduces wear and tear on critical printer components.

There are other benefits too. They include validated surface electrical properties and improved performance to help reduce paper jams and misfeeds.

With this change, will the new product maintain its leading reputation for professional laser printing? No worries here. Blind tests conducted with laser equipment have demonstrated that the product performs as well as previously in laser applications.




99.99% Jam-free Guarantee

PRO-DESIGN brand has attained a 99.99% jam-free guarantee accreditation across the entire range.

This achievement provides a further endorsement of the product’s high performance standards. Thanks to supreme sheet formation, smooth surface and optimal stiffness, PRO-DESIGN guarantees 99.99% jam-free runnability – confirmed in multiple, in-depth tests conducted on leading printing systems and validated by customer feedback.

The following highlights serve as a concise overview and a reference point for the properties we closely monitor in the manufacturing process of PRO-DESIGN and which have significant impact on the print quality of your work.

  • Smoothness: the evenness of the surface of the paper
  • Formation: uniformity of the sheet
  • Whiteness: the visual appearance of the sheet
  • Moisture: amount of water content in sheet
  • Curl: when a sheet takes on a curved quality, losing its ‘flatness’
