MONTREAL, Sept. 9, 2013

MONTREAL, Sept. 9, 2013  /PRNewswire/ - Resolute  Forest Products Inc.  (NYSE: 
ABH) (TSX: ABH) today announced that  Canon Solutions America, Inc., a  wholly 
owned subsidiary of  Canon U.S.A., will  be incorporating Resolute's  Ecopaque 
paper into an onsite demonstration live on the showroom floor at PRINT 13, the
most expansive exhibition of digital,  offset, flexo and hybrid  technologies, 
products and services  in the Americas.  The exhibition will  take place  from 
September 8-12, 2013, at McCormick Place South in Chicago, Illinois.

Canon Solutions  America will  produce three  finished books:  "Grimm's  Fairy 
Tales," "Frankenstein" and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" onsite at PRINT
13. The books will be printed on Resolute's Ecopaque paper, part of its Align™
family of high brightness, environmentally responsible mechanical papers  that 
can be used as an alternative  to chemical pulp coated and uncoated  freesheet 
in inkjet, offset  and laser printing.  Produced on the  Océ ColorStream  3900 
printing system, the books will feature premium pigment black inks, along with
full-color covers produced  on the Canon  imagePRESS C7010VP. Canon  Solutions 
America has also  preprinted several rolls  of the same  books, which will  be 
finished on Standard Horizon's Smart Binding System live in the Standard booth

Premium Quality without the Premium Price Tag
Developed  to  provide  today's   marketplace  with  a  more   cost-effective, 
environmentally friendly alternative to traditional offset, all the papers  in 
the Align family are derived from a renewable resource and produced in a safe,
sustainable and environmentally responsible manner.

Made with 50  percent less wood  fiber, Ecopaque has  a smaller  environmental 
footprint  than  traditional  offset  papers,  including  some  which  contain 
recycled content. Yet it  still delivers the  quality print service  providers 
(PSPs) have  come to  expect from  traditional freesheet  paper. A  high-yield 
paper, Ecopaque features higher opacity at a lower basis weight, resulting  in 
significant savings in paper, mailing and transportation costs.

"Our customers  care about  the environment  more than  ever, but  still  feel 
pressure to reduce printing costs,"  said Breen Blaine, Vice President,  North 
American  Paper  Sales,  Resolute   Forest  Products.  "Ecopaque  provides   a 
high-quality, eco-friendly and  budget-friendly alternative  for customers  in 
multiple print environments - inkjet, laser and offset."

From books, magazines and maps to transactional documents, annual reports  and 
direct mail pieces, Ecopaque is  the environmentally friendly alternative  for 
most commercial applications.

"Ecopaque is a remarkable step forward for print service providers looking  to 
be more in tune with the environment, while keeping tabs on their costs," said
Francis A.  McMahon, Vice  President,  Marketing, Production  Print  Solutions 
division, at  Canon Solutions  America.  "It delivers  the savings  they  need 
without sacrificing the quality they have come to expect."

Partnering for the Environment
Print service providers are  increasingly looking for  solutions to help  them 
reduce their carbon footprint and that  of their supply chain. Joint  efforts, 
such as the partnership  between Canon Solutions  America and Resolute  Forest 
Products, serve  to  keep  them  apprised of  the  wealth  of  environmentally 
responsible options available - and what better place to raise awareness  than 
at one of the industry's biggest trade shows.

"Canon Solutions  America is  proud  to partner  with  Resolute to  shine  the 
spotlight on environmentally friendly solutions," added McMahon. "Events  like 
PRINT  13  provide  the  ideal  venue  in  which  to  introduce  PSPs  to  the 
increasingly broad array of environmentally friendly options that will  enable 
them to better respond to their customers' demands."

Resolute is pleased to have been chosen by Canon to provide the paper for  the 
onsite demonstration.

"Customers look to Canon Solutions America to advise them on which papers will
be successful  in  their printers,"  said  Laura Ashley,  Manager,  Marketing, 
Resolute Forest Products. "It  is incredibly meaningful for  us to have  Canon 
lend its stamp of approval to our papers."
