A Day at the Races…fun and a worthy cause!
Several Fischer Paper Products employees and spouses were pleased to attend the annual “Day at the Races” benefit luncheon for NorthPointe Resources in May. NorthPointe Resources 60th Anniversary Benefit Luncheon was held in the International Room with a breathtaking view of Arlington Park Race Course. The room was full of supporters celebrating 60 successful years of providing programs and services to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and/or mental illness.
NorthPointe Resources, Inc. is a not-for-profit provider of intellectual developmental disability (I/DD) and behavioral health services. Founded in 1953 by a group of concerned parents with a desire for quality programming, today NorthPointe offers an extensive system of support and service delivery in the greater Lake County area – where Fischer Paper Products is located. Annually, NorthPointe supports approximately 500 individuals through opportunities that include employment, training, day services, residential programs and an array of service options designed to ensure program participants achieve the highest level of independence.

Fischer Paper Products adds new proofing capabilities
Fischer Paper Products has taken proofing to a new level. We recently upgraded our in house proof and inkjet printing capabilities, with the introduction of the new Epson SureColor Series inkjet printer. A great feature of this new printer is the ability for us to, print a sample proof on the same kraft substrate as the final bag. There are a few limitations, but if you have a digital file we would be happy to create a folded hand sample with your art placed to show position.
Not only does this printer give us the flexibility to print on a sheet up 36", on a multitude of substrates, but by printing on core rolls of in house paper set aside for recycling, we are reducing waste. Doing our part to be environmentally friendly.
Contact us today to discuss the awesome possibilities.
