First up, Mohawk plans to debut two new substrates: Mohawk Synthetic Performance Polyester and the Mohawk Pressure Sensitive Select Collection. The following comes directly from the first official press murmurings.

It’s targeted for the production of:

Expanded Pressure Sensitive Substrates
Mohawk’s expanded line of pressure sensitive substrates now includes Standard, Select and Kiss Cut Collections. As a whole, they “offer a wide range of options for digital labels and signage, including a variety of sizes, calipers, face stocks and adhesive strengths.
“The new Select Collection features white polyester and vinyl labels in the three most popular adhesive strengths: permanent, removable and ultra-removable. With HP Indigo and dry toner optimized versions, this new collection is designed to run on a range of digital printing equipment including light production.”
