Candesce® C1S

Looks that last.

Because we make Ancora and Candesce without optical brightening agents (OBAs), your print will look as good next week as it does today, with none of the fading and reversion that can occur when OBA-treated paperboard is exposed to sun or fluorescent lighting.

More performance. Less cost.

What's more, our premium paperboards save you money by enabling trouble-free printing. Our run-to-run consistency minimizes your job start-up costs. And our ultrasmooth, ultralevel print surface means less ink and paperboard waste, saving costs.

FSC® and SFI certified.

Ancora and Candesce are available with either FSC or SFI certification in a full caliper range. And every product comes with the Clearwater Paper customer service that has helped us build one of the best reputations in the industry.
