MEMPHIS, Tenn., Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Verso Corporation (NYSE: VRS), a leading producer of flexible packaging, technical, and label and converting papers, today announced the introduction of CraftPoint™, a family of premium pressure-sensitive and cut-and-stack beverage label papers designed to make craft beers, spirits and wines stand out on the shelf or in the cooler.

"Our American-made CraftPoint™ label papers are as compelling as the beverages they represent, and are backed by our decades of experience producing high performance wet strength, cut-and-stack, and pressure sensitive label papers."

CraftPoint™ Matte - Matte finish with low gloss that supports high print fidelity
