Folding Carton

Presented by Metsä Board

Metsä Board will be presenting a range of innovative sustainable packaging solutions designed specifically for luxury and creative applications at PCD 2019 Paris (Porte de Versailles, 30-31 January, Stand L17). In addition to its premium paperboards, Metsä Board will feature its range of packaging analysis and design services – which encompass material and structural analysis as well as modification of existing packaging to a fully-customised design, complete with graphics.

Metsä Board will highlight its innovative and award-winning SkinCare 2.0 gift box which uses fibre-based materials to replace plastic. The outer rigid box as well as the tray are made with a new pulp moulding process. Each of the three inner cartons are made of lightweight paperboard and offer a unique opening and reclosing experience combined with maximum runnability performance.

Another gift box on show incorporates pleasing haptics, pigment effects, matt and gloss lacquer finishes as well as laser-cutting and various hot foil embossing effects. The package called ‘Nature’ is a result of a cross industry collaboration project. Metsä Board will also present a ‘golden’ package designed to look and feel like an exclusive branded leather-like clutch-bag that is recyclable at the end of its lifecycle.
