Colored paper is processed the same way as white paper, only a computerized dye system injects and monitors dyes in the pulp while in stock preparation. The color of the paper depends on the needs of the consumer.
Different types of paper are made for different uses: computer form paper, envelope paper, writing paper, printer paper, napkins, and tagboard. Imagine— all these products from wood chips!
Over 1,500 rolls are handled each day at the St. Helens Mill. That is equivalent to 650 tons of paper. The paper will now await delivery to the customers.
To ship that quantity of paper, more than 40 trucks per day are loaded and shipped out of the mill, six days a week.


Thanks to the folks at the Boise Cascade St. Helens mill for the informative tour!
