BENSENVILLE, IL--(Marketwire - June 15, 2009) - Boise Inc. (NYSE: BZ), a leading manufacturer of packaging products and papers, announced today that Boise® X-9® multi-purpose copy papers, and Boise® ASPEN® 30 premium recycled copy paper, are now available in the Boise® SPLOX® paper delivery system -- the SPEED LOADING BOX™. Since its introduction in 2003, the Boise SPLOX paper delivery system has served the printing and copying needs of customers as a stand-alone brand.

Customers who purchase Boise X-9 papers and Boise ASPEN 30 recycled paper in standard ream-wrapped cartons now have the option of obtaining Boise X-9 and Boise ASPEN 30 papers in a convenient, productive, environmentally sensitive, and safe packaging system.

"We now offer the total package of performance and productivity. Our customers operating in high-production print environments such as in-plants and data centers are sure to be pleased with this unbeatable combination of speed, safety, and performance," said Terry Stepney, Brand Manager.

The Boise SPLOX paper delivery system is functionally and ergonomically designed to improve the speed, ease, and safety of loading paper into printing and copying equipment. Its patented "clamshell" design, featuring an integrated handle and lid, provides direct access to 2,500 sheets of ream-less paper. In addition, the Boise SPLOX paper delivery system has the environmental benefit of being made from recyclable material that can be reused.

Boise X-9 paper is specially formulated for excellent runnability. It gives everyday documents a consistent look and feel while offering exceptional performance in office equipment and high-speed output devices. Boise ASPEN 30 premium recycled paper combines environmental benefits with the runnability performance and document quality customers expect.

By integrating Boise X-9 papers and Boise ASPEN 30 recycled paper with the Boise SPLOX paper delivery system, not only will print jobs run well, producing them will be fast and easy for Boise's customers. This packaging change is accompanied by the introduction of a new tagline featured on the box that brings the attributes of the paper brands together with the unique paper delivery system: "Great Paper.
