The Perfect Christmas Gift

Personal, sustainable and ecological

11. November 2016

We all know how it feels to open a Christmas present. As we untie the bow, we experience a thrilling combination of joyful anticipation and delightful excitement. As though a curtain were being drawn back, we eagerly await the actors to appear on stage. A starring role in the play called “The Perfect Christmas Gift” is performed by the card: it’s the herald who shapes the audience’s expectations. Look and feel are the decisive factors in the casting, when we choose the right card. Simply looking good isn’t enough to earn a role on the stage of Christmas presents. The card needs a tangible difference. A special paper combined with a noble printing technique puts our gift into the perfect light.

After the recipient has read our personalized Christmas greetings and placed the card on the windowsill, it’s time for the grand finale: the gift. The more personal, the better! A personal present shows that we took our time and that we know and appreciate its recipient. The photo album from Gmund Paper is an especially stylish gift. This elegantly simple album with hand-bound spine is the perfect start for a lovingly designed photo album.

The Memory Book from Gmund Paper is another real eyecatcher among Christmas presents. As a recipe book or guestbook, for memories or notes, the Memory Books is a permanent invitation to write and sketch. A thick binding securely holds the white pages, each with a discreet watermark. The Memory Book is full of exquisite details, e.g. the unusual Japanese binding. With diverse color schemes and many potential uses, Gmund Paper’s Memory Book is a uniquely special treat to place beneath the Christmas tree, where it patiently awaits its recipient.

The Ecological DNA of gifts from Gmund Paper

Gifts from Gmund Paper aren’t only beautiful: they’re also sustainable and ecological. Gmund’s papermakers achieved during the last 30 years a 70% reduction in the volume of water used when manufacturing paper. And Gmund generates up to 75% of the necessary energy through water power and CHP (combined heat and power). Recycling also plays a major role at Gmund. Every scrap of wastepaper is collected and painstakingly sorted by color so it can be reused in the next manufacturing process. Every paper from Gmund contains between 20 and 25% preconsumer recycled fibers.
