The new Gmund Gold paper

Unique, modern gold from the inventor of metallic paper

20. September 2016

In 1974, Gmund Paper developed a unique process which used a special technique to apply pigment to paper.

This is what causes the exceptional refraction of light on the paper – something that never fails to enchant the Hollywood stars every year in that magical moment when they open the golden envelope at the Oscars.

Continuously developed and improved over the years, the end result of decades of research and experience is now available for all to admire in the new collection Gmund Gold. It covers a range of 12 golden nuances, from subtle iridescence to the most dazzling gold in the paper industry.

These include "Helium", with a hint of delicate gold; "Oro", a luminescent, warm golden tone like a sun-soaked Italian summer's evening; "Composition", an exciting mix of silver and gold; "Breeze", a subtle understatement made with fine gold dust; "Value", the strongest, most intensive and most famous gold in the world, which makes a big appearance every year in Hollywood and really stands out with an explosion of pigment; and "Lime Gold" with hints of green, which shines like golden neon.

Gmund's new collection gives every product a luxurious quality, whether boxed, wrapped or displayed on its own – from greeting cards to image and product brochures to packaging for international brands.

Gmund also offers exclusive cardboard envelopes (310 g/m²) in a classic design with straight lines in size C5.
