111 YEARS OF COLORED PAPER
Gmund Paper is celebrating 111 years of colored paper!
When paper manufacturer and visionary Ludwig Alois Kohler came up with the idea of producing colored paper in 1910, it was groundbreaking. Today, colored paper is no longer a sensation, but the innovation of the great-granduncle of today's owner Florian Kohler laid the foundation for the success story of the paper mill in Gmund am Tegernsee.
Now it's your turn! Use Color!
Gmund Paper grants an 11.1% discount on the Gmund Colors collection and selected stationery items, during the period from March 30 to May 31, 2021, online only at www.gmund.com.

HEMP - Because trees are too slow
Paper is made from plants, is compostable and thus creates nutrients for new plants. A perfect ecological cycle. Gmund Hemp goes one step further. Did you know that hemp can be harvested 3 times a year? In comparison, a tree needs about 7 years or more! The organic fibre material made from the fast-growing raw material hemp is technically – due to the long fibres – much stronger than wood pulp and so pure that it is perfect for the packaging sector. Hemp even improves the future recycling process, since the robust nature of the long-fibre pulp enables additional paper recycling cycles. Not just sustainable, but a convincing alternative.
You can find hemp paper in our collection Gmund Bio Cycle.
An ecological paper with a history: as Gmund Used is made from 100 % used paper. DIP (deinked pulp) is utilized in the production of Gmund Used, thus transforming discarded paper into high-quality Gmund design paper. The cycle is perfect thanks to maximum fiber reclamation. Combining vibrant new colors and high strength, the Gmund Used collection unites all the requirements for the paper of the future.

BOOM – Sustainability brochure
The Gmund Bio Cycle collection enables true organic communication for an eco-friendly brand message with sustainable impact. What does this look like? Together with the design agency hw.design (Munich) and the printing company Eberl Print (Immenstadt), a cooperation of sustainability was created, resulting in the BOOM brochure.
It combines all Bio-Cycle papers in one project: the paper "Chlorophyll - Leafy Green" is convincing as a cover with complex binding requirements, and for the remaining papers, the lightweights were chosen, which are perfectly suited for the inside pages.
A statement for ecological action with striking added value in design, haptics, storytelling and credibility.

STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME
...relies on the Gmund full service team.
STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! makes biodegradable natural cosmetics with the mission to protect, save and donate water. The Gmund retail service was able to fully deliver with its service promise of "everything from a single source". In addition, the two companies share the same ecological values.
The "Gmund Colors Matt 49" paper in combination with an innovative barrier was used for banderoles of the new "Waterless Products" (soaps). The new banderoles meet all specifications: sealable, guaranteed greaseproof, plastic-free, and compostable. Other joint projects followed, such as an Advent calendar, a Christmas kit (made from Lakepaper Extra Matt), folding boxes for a cosmetics line and a tester kit (made from Gmund Colors Matt 49).

CUSTOMIZED PAPER WITH RICE STRAW
"Made in Fukushima" is a book made of rice straw from the decontaminated fields in Fukushima. The rice straw was harvested, dried, cleaned, cut, and then made into paper in Gmund am Tegernsee.

In this project, paper supports the documentation of what happened in a truly unique way.
Idea and production: Serviceplan Solutions, printing: Druckerei Vogl.
