Alternative Substrates

Customer demand has led to an explosion of interest in alternative substrates containing recycled fiber. Suppliers have responded to this market demand and there is an unprecedented range available. Many recycled content products are now produced in high volumes and compare favorably in cost to virgin fiber options.
