Fun Facts - Gmund Color System

Color Process

Not everyone knows that Color #86 (Key Lime) required the longest set-up time of any color ever: 8 full hours. Reason is, the process is a bit more complex than with any other color. The whole fiber needs to be saturated, creating a not-so-simple process, but impossible to achieve by simply printing on the surface. It's the only way to accomplish such intensive, clear colors.

All this time and labor is no doubt worthwhile - the new Gmund colors are breathtaking.

Speaking of time, it took 3 full years to choose the colors for the new Color System. Gmund color experts find inspiration wherever they look. A cup was the inspiration for Color #92 (Cayenne). A special scarf inspired the beautiful, Teal tone in Color #90 (Dark Teal Blue).

The 48 colors of the Color System spectrum were carefully concocted to be mixed and matched.

Gmund has used this paper...

For envelopes (namely, the VIP invitation for the Cannes Film Festival!), special brochures for international companies, packaging for the world's finest chocolate, for special "ecological" teas and herbs, and, of course, for invitations all around the world - either a wedding in Buenos Aires or a gala night in Tokyo.

Why 48 colors? Why not 47 or 49?

According to Gmund, the story doesn't stop at 48. Don't be surprised if more colors come your way. Soon.

Paper Making Process

Water plays a huge part in paper making, especially for Gmund. All Gmund papers are manufactured using the pure spring water gathered from a mountain's natural fountainhead which runs right over the factory. All of Gmund's incredible products are produced in their private mill, which seamlessly combines traditional methods no longer used anywhere else in the world alongside special high-tech machinery. One machine is from 1883, affectionately known as "The Old Lady", the oldest paper machine in Europe, the other from 1979. It goes without saying that both are constantly updated to be as high-tech and energy efficient as possible. Gmund is fully committed to environmentally conscious methods, as well as preserving and honoring the surrounding woodlands.

Gmund's Green Initiatives

Proudly, Gmund was the forerunner in environmentally responsible methods in the paper industry. In 2007, Gmund established the Environmental Charter. Amazingly, the mill voluntarily committed itself to upholding some pretty strict regulations. New technologies enabled the mill to reduce its water consumption by 70%. So, where does Gmund get their raw materials from, you ask? They're sourced from certified sustainable plantations; impressively, both the resources and the workforce are treated with regulatory fairness and responsibility. Up to 75% of the energy needed for Gmund's paper production is produced by the mill itself: three water turbines, solar power and power-heat contribute toward efficient energy production.
