The debut of EVO Coated took place at the Hunkeler Innovationdays, the flagship event in the printing industry held from 27 February to 2 March 2023 in Lucerne, Switzerland: here, visitors had the opportunity to experience first hand the technical features of Burgo's new coated papers for inkjet printing.
Burgo Group has focused decisively on the development of the EVO range, its collection of digital inkjet printing papers. With the launch of EVO Coated, the fully coated paper developed in partnership with HP Inc., Burgo is targeting the most demanding segment of the inkjet market: it is indeed a product designed to guarantee excellent image reproduction, combined with optimal productivity and consistent quality.
“Digital printing technologies are increasingly widespread, and our goal is to be present in this market as a valuable partner. To design a new product, it’s required both paper and print technology knowledge, so the partnership with HP allows all our products to be in the front line and ready to always guarantee customer satisfaction.”
Stated Tomaso Esposito, Head of Marketing and Sales Europe for Burgo Group.
EVO Coated is ColorPRO certified, it doesn’t need any primer during printing, and is compatible with all existing HP inkjet presses, even the newest generation ones.
Bret Funke, Global Head of HP Media Supplies & Solutions, remarked:
“The market is growing rapidly year-over-year and it's exciting to see our partner, the Burgo Group, launch a new line of coated glossy papers with HP ColorPRO technology to address the increasing demand from our customers interested in printing high-value applications for their clients and brands."
Burgo's EVO range features two additional products certified with HP ColorPRO technology: EVO Bright Silk and EVO Cosmo. These papers are now joined by the two grades of the new EVO Coated: EVO Coated Gloss and EVO Coated Satin.

The EVO range: evolution in digital printing
