Paper made at the Domtar paper plant in Rothschild was used by the White House for President Trump's inauguration thank you cards and envelopes.

A high-end paper produced by Domtar called "Cougar" was picked by government officials to print thank you notes to those who attended last Friday's inaugural events.

It's not the first time Domtar has gotten attention from the White House.

Back in 2013 "Cougar" was used to print former President Obama's official White House Christmas cards.

Craig Timm, Manager of Regional Public Affairs for Domtar says the company stays away from any political partisanship, but the 415 employees at the Rothschild plant are honored to have their product in the spotlight.

"A lot of hard work goes into producing it and it's just nice to see an end-use like that, it's kind of unique," said Timm.

Domtar employees have not gotten a copy of the thank you note yet, but expect to see it soon.

The Rothschild plant has been around for more than 100 years.
