Date:4/21/2008

Boise continues leadership in premium and specialty paper market

BENSENVILLE, Ill., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boise Inc. announced today that Boise BEWARE, its anti-copy/anti-scan paper, complies with federal guidelines for paper-based security in Medicaid papers by offering two tamper-resistant features.

Medicaid prescription papers must meet all three criteria by October 1, 2008. Boise BEWARE currently meets two of the three criteria.

"BEWARE is now in full compliance with the federal mandate effective April 1, 2008," said Steve Kanda, brand manager, BEWARE. "The health care industry can have confidence that BEWARE's superior anti-copying technology keeps them compliant. Boise will continue to go the extra mile to provide the quality our customers have come to expect."

An enhanced BEWARE product is in development that will meet all three characteristics required by the October 1 deadline. The new feature is a coin-reactive, artificial watermark on the back of the sheet. When a coin is rubbed over the back of the sheet, the words BOISE BEWARE will appear. This feature is not reproducible on a copier, fax, scanner or laser printer.
The criteria for the federal guidelines effective April 1, 2008, include:

-- One or more industry-recognized features designed to prevent

unauthorized copying of a completed or blank prescription form.

-- BEWARE has this feature: VOID, COPY or UNAUTHORIZED COPY appears

when duplication is attempted.

-- One or more industry-recognized features designed to prevent the

erasure or modification of information written on the prescription by

the prescriber.

-- BEWARE has this feature: When erasure occurs, it is evident on the

paper as ink is removed in the spot where alteration is attempted.

-- One or more industry-recognized features designed to prevent the use of

counterfeit prescription forms.

Boise BEWARE utilizes AuthentiGuard(R) Pantograph 4000(TM), a technology developed by Document Security Systems, Inc., a leader in proven, patented protection against counterfeiting and unauthorized copying, scanning and faxing.

In addition to medical prescriptions, Boise BEWARE is also commonly used for legal documents, coupons, business contracts, copyrighted materials and visitor badges.
