Zanders to present unique paper projects at Creative Paper Conference, Munich

Showcasing innovation in paper and print


Zanders, German manufacturer of high-quality specialty papers and boards, will present itself as a premium partner at Creative Paper Conference, a trade fair for paper innovation and high-quality print finishing, in Munich taking place from 25 October to 26 October 2018. The company will showcase the traditional Chromolux brand, celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, as well as Zanpack and the new product Zangrass, an uncoated multi-purpose paper containing up to 40 percent grass and with an exciting tactile feel.

Zanders intends to present high-quality paper and board grades that allow for versatile finishings at this year’s Creative Paper Conference in Munich. For 60 years, the traditional Chromolux, has been standing for worldwide paper excellence. Chromolux is appreciated for its unique glossy surface, its smoothness and its high bulk properties that enable a brilliant print image and immaculate processing, as well as the complete range of finishings: from blind and relief embossing to hot and cold-foil stamping and all the way to unusual finishing techniques such as glitter varnishing, iriodin effects, flock printing or laser die-cutting. For this reason, Chromolux is said to be suitable for high-end products such as exclusive perfumes and cosmetics, fine confectionery, champagne and spirits as well as fine tobacco goods and other luxury articles as well as a multitude of graphical applications. Chromolux is available in a variety of grammages and colors including elegant pearl and metallic surfaces or embossed versions. The extensive product portfolio is complemented by Chromolux digital which is ideal for small or personalized print runs.

The qualities of the Zanpack portfolio render remarkable printing results and processability. Zanpack silk with its smooth surface presents an attractive appearance. This quality includes one-side double-coated versions with functional reverse side treatment in grammages from 180 to 380 gsm. In addition to cosmetics and healthcare products, these grades are equally well-suited for packaging confectionary, food and beverages, tobacco and non-food items as well as for graphical applications. Zanpack touch with its uncoated surface provides a pleasant, natural-grainy feel. It is especially suited for brands that want to emphasize their ecological orientation. Zanpack touch is available in grammages from 240 to 340 gsm. The packaging design plays with the contrast of the shimmering color effect of the transparent hot foil with the tactile influence of the natural-grainy Zanpack touch.

The solid-colored pulp boards Chromolux tinted and Zanpack tinted present themselves without white cutting edges. Also at spots of folding, die-cutting or embossing, they allow for flawless packaging.

Each sheet is unique

The grass paper Zangrass is the newest development by Zanders and offers a natural, heterogeneous look like no other paper with fine grass dots on a greenish-beige basic tone. Around 20 to 40 percent virgin fibers of sun-dried grass are being used for the new quality. The other part consists of bleached fresh fiber pulp. The natural optical and tactile character of Zangrass is topped off by the uncoated, textured surface. At the same time, the quality has very good stability and processing properties and can be used for flexo printing.

The sixth Creative Paper Conference will take place in Munich in 2018 under the theme “Analogue Revolution” and will presents paper innovation, high-quality finishings and astonishing printing projects. Besides the fair, in which Zanders will be participating, there will also be nine performances and a Pecha-Kucha-block, in which presenters discuss the topics of editorial and corporate design, packaging and production and risography, screen print and typography in under seven minutes.
