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!
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.
ship that quantity of paper, more than 40 trucks per day are loaded and shipped
out of the mill, six days a week.
