Monadnock Paper Mills and Spectrum Packaging Corporation Partner to Produce Multi-Substrate, High-End Retail Sample Kit

8 May 2020

Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the U.S., and Spectrum Packaging Corporation, a specialty folding-carton package printer, have partnered to create an interactive sample kit highlighting myriad decorative techniques and paperboard fiber options for luxury brands and retailers.

The Power of Two

Thanks to a new collaboration between two of North America’s leading material and package-printing sustainability pioneers, brand owners, package designers, and high-end retailers have new options to produce packaging. The new product packaging is more sustainable and luxurious, capable of communicating brand value, offering product integrity, and meeting customers’ increasingly sophisticated sustainability expectations.

Designed and crafted by the packaging and printing specialists at Spectrum Packaging Corporation, the interactive sample kit brings the unboxing experience to a new level. The liftaway tray holds nine cubes featuring a broad range of sustainably produced fiber-based substrates with fresh designs, inks, foils, embossing and UV treatments.

Crafted with the environment and brand integrity in mind, Monadnock’s folding box board line comprises a broad range of sustainably produced fiber-based substrates from virgin and PCW recycled fiber on coated and uncoated surfaces, to Kona and cotton fiber.

Key material attributes include:

  • Forest Stewardship Council® Certified ensuring responsible use of forest resources (FSC® C018866)
  • Manufactured Carbon Neutral
  • Manufactured with 100% Renewable Electricity
  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
  • Up to 100 percent PCW recycled content and a blend of plant-based fiber options
  • Recyclable in curb-side mix paper recycle bin

“Spectrum’s attention to detail and commitment to the environment makes them a perfect partner for luxury and lifestyle brands looking to separate their products from the competition,” said Lisa Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing at Monadnock Paper Mills. “The combination of our renewable and recyclable folding box board line and their technical and engineering expertise unleashes new packaging possibilities for brand owners.”

“This sample will put to rest the lingering misconceptions that high-end brand and retailer packaging with a premium look and feel are incompatible with social responsibility and sustainability,” said Mark Mills, vice president of sales and marketing, Spectrum Packaging Corporation. “Yesterday’s package and paperboard printing technical challenges are today’s premium brand differentiators.”
