The Metall Ink Project

Paper manufacturer Sappi, producer of metallic and pearlescent pigments ECKART (part of ALTANA Group) and renown finishing specialist GT/Trendhouse 42 have joined forces on an exciting collaborative development – the Metall Ink project.

The aim of this project is to create a sustainable, print-based premium alternative for metallic effects to existing finishing processes.

Together with our partners Eckart and GT Trendhouse 42, we have developed three packaging examples for skin care, perfume and spirits that make the metallic ink effects tangible. These packaging showcase print-based, premium silver and gold embellishments in combination with a multitude of varnish, pearlescent, embossing effects and a variety of stunning pack-constructions, shapes and graphic design styles.
