Mondi, the global packaging and paper Group, has announced that Fenner Paper is their distributing partner for Pergraphica in the United Kingdom. This ensures full availability of the product white range in folio formats and optimal customer service nationwide.
“We launched Pergraphica only four years ago, and we are already seeing award-winning projects in Germany, Russia, Italy, Poland, Slovakia or the Czech Republic printed on our premium paper. I’m happy that we have now found a great partner in Fenner Paper to continue our creative journey in the UK”, says Johannes Klumpp, Marketing and Sales Director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.
Even before the agreement, a prestigious book project was realised on Pergraphica in Great Britain: “AOP50”, celebrating the 50 years anniversary of the Association of Photographers. Further creative projects are showcased on Pergraphica’s Instagram account.
PERGRAPHICA®, paper for perfectionists
Pergraphica is Mondi's exclusive design paper range that fulfils the needs of the creative and professional printing industry in the premium segment. Pergraphica meets the highest requirements for demanding, high-quality print projects and meets the strict criteria of numerous renowned international sustainability standards, such as FSC® or EU Ecolabel.
Its range is characterised by excellent printing properties and is available in two different surfaces (rough and smooth), in five colour variants (High White, Classic, Natural, Ivory and Infinite Black) and in six grammages between 70 and 350 g / m² in Folio and digital formats.
At the beginning of the year 2018, Mondi launched its "Vienna Stories" campaign for Pergraphica. Its centerpiece, the Pergraphica Collection Box with the book "Vienna Stories", won the Special Prize for Paper for the Paperazzo Haptics Award 2018. Several customer projects realised with Pergraphica, such as the special issue of the Hamburger Abendblatt for the opening of the Elbphilharmonie, were awarded creative prizes. In addition, the programme leaflets at the Moscow Bolshoi Theater, the current yearbook of the Creativ Club Austria and the Czech design magazine Barlife are printed on Pergraphica, among others.

“What is special about Pergraphica is that the brand is not only committed to premium print quality, but also to inspiring paper lovers everywhere. It’s all about creatives inspiring other creatives, and that absolutely fits our idea of working with the industry”, says Justin Hobson, Marketing Director at Fenner Paper.
“With the Vienna Stories campaign and a beautiful book on the creative scene in Pergraphica’s home town, Mondi has shown that they are more than just great papermakers. They get the emotional power of paper and print.”
