Arjowiggins has launched an innovative new colour matching tool to make it simple for designers and brands to combine products from two of its complementary creative paper collections - Keaykolour and Curious Metallics.

With this new tool Arjowiggins demonstrates its command of colour creation, development and matching and reaffirms its position as the ‘International standard for colour’ in creative papers.

The new tool, designed by creative partner North, comes as a dual box set and highlights perfect colour matches, complementary colour families and the opportunities for creative combinations within the different range finishes.

The box set comprises a Keaykolour box and a Curious Metallics box, each holding a set of specially-designed loose sample cards which showcase each range in its entirety. A choice of ten box colours are available for each range. A clever die-cut design enables customers to change the top sheet to view different colour combinations, and each box in the set can also be used individually.

A selection of ten pairs of sample cards across the two ranges are printed with identical graphic designs using a variety of print techniques including embossing, foiling and offset. They showcase colour matches such as Metallics’ Electric Blue with Keaykolour’s Royal Blue, Metallics’ Magma with Keaykolour’s Chili Pepper and Metallics’ Ice Silver with Keaykolour’s Pure White.

The practical A6 size, coupled with the loose-card and die-cut format of the box sets, allows customers to explore and discover other unique colour harmonies and pairs, underlining the strength of the two palettes and Arjowiggins’ commitment to widening creative possibilities for its customers.

Jose-Anne d’Auvergne, Head of Marketing at Arjowiggins, comments: “We are constantly listening and looking to respond to the needs of our customers. To this end we have created this very practical and interactive alternative to the traditional sample book. Colour remains one of the key attributes of any creative paper and is very often the first criterion in the selection of paper for graphic printing or design. Our Keaykolour and Curious Metallics ranges exist beautifully on their own but have been carefully crafted to work harmoniously together.

“This new tool will enable customers to approach our paper ranges in a new way. The loose card format encourages customers to play with papers and colour; finding new and unexpected combinations that they may not have imagined with a traditional bound book. The new tool also uses less paper, making it a more sustainable option.”

Keaykolour is a collection of natural, wove textured, high-rigidity papers and boards in 48 sophisticated mid-tone colours, arranged in nine chromatically harmonised colour families. It also includes a choice of 100% recycled products as well as a range of 13 embossing patterns. The Curious Metallics collection brings a shimmering lustre to eight coherent families of muted and natural tints, along with a small number of resonant, contemporary colours, across a wide array of papers and boards.

The 48 colours of Keaykolour coupled with the 30 colours of Curious Metallics create a harmonious palette that reveals the power of creative combinations between the refined, natural texture of Keaykolour and the ever-so-subtle shimmer of Curious Metallics.

The new colour matching tool is available through Arjowiggins’ network of merchants and is available either as a set of two boxes or as two individual boxes.

Customers are being invited to share their favourite colour combinations on Arjowggins’ social platforms @arjocreatives on Instagram and @arjopapers on Twitter using the hashtag #myarjomixandmatch.

Arjowiggins is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of creative papers with over 320 years of expertise in papermaking and a mission to continually set international standards.

The management team of leading paper manufacturer Arjowiggins Creative Papers has announced a successful management buyout of its UK operations, protecting hundreds of jobs and safeguarding two historic paper mills in Aberdeen and Kent. 

The company has been trading in administration since January 2019 following insolvency proceedings against French parent companies Arjowiggins and Sequana. The business will now be led by an eight-strong experienced leadership team headed up by current managing director Jonathan Mitchell.

The management buyout covers Arjowiggins Fine Papers, which runs the group’s Stoneywood mill in Aberdeen plus an office in Basingstoke, and Arjowiggins Chartham, which operates the Chartham mill in Canterbury. Following the MBO, the new company will have 559 employees.

Both mills dates back to the 1700s. The Stoneywood mill pioneered the production of fine paper in the 1800s and now manufactures products for designers, printers and clients worldwide under well-known brands such as Conqueror, Curious Collection and Keaykolour. The Chartham mill is one of the oldest employers in the area, specialising in the production of translucent papers, in particular the Gateway range which is recognised today as the world’s leading brand of tracing paper.

Jonathan Mitchell comments: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured the future of a strong and sustainable business which has such a long heritage in the UK. Arjowiggins Creative Papers has world-renowned market-leading brands and products and a passionate and talented team.  We are looking forward to taking steps to further strengthen the business and continue to provide first class products and customer service to our clients.

“The last nine months has been an unsettling time for the company and we are extremely grateful to the administrators, FRP Advisory, for having allowed the business to continue to trade while we found a workable solution. The support we have had from our staff, customers, suppliers and the Scottish Government has been incredible and without them this deal would not have been possible. There has been a real combined will to keep this historic business alive.”

2019 10 21 091807

The deal has been financed by Shawbrook Bank and SQN Asset Finance Income Fund as well as a number of strategic customers. Significant financial backing has also been received from national economic development agency Scottish Enterprise.

In Aberdeen, where 75% of employees are based, a Common Purpose Group was established by Jamie Hepburn MSP, Scottish Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills, with a focus on securing a long-term future for the Stoneywood mill. This was led by Scottish Enterprise and included representatives of the company’s management, Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire councils, Opportunity North East, Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce and Unite.

Mr Hepburn said:  “I am delighted that the future of this historic mill has now been secured through a management buyout. This is great news for the employees and their families, and indeed welcomed across Aberdeen, the Northeast and further afield. 

“The Scottish Government, through Scottish Enterprise, has been working intensively with the administrator, management team, UNITE and local partners throughout this entire process to secure this positive outcome.

“The priority now is to work closely with the new owners to realise their plans for the long-term success of the business, and identify future opportunities in the sector, which ultimately benefits the local economy and wider North East economy.”

The completion of the MBO in the UK is the first in a two stage process and the management team are also in advanced discussions with French administrators on the acquisition of the company’s non-UK operations which include Spanish mill Guarro Casas and Quzhou mill in China.

Arjowiggins Graphic, the leading manufacturer of environmental and specialist paper solutions, is collaborating with automatic screen printing machine manufacturer, INO, and digital printing system manufacturer Ricoh to demonstrate the print performance of their DigiPeel HD papers at this year’s FESPA Global Print Exhibition.

One year since the product was launched at the same event, the qualities of DigiPeel HD will be displayed through live demonstrations on the INO semi-automatic screen printer machine VS6 500 and the Ricoh Pro C7100x. The demonstration will be supported by an exclusive viewing of a promotional video showing (below) the value of DigiPeel HD for industrial digital printing on textiles.

argo print

Arjowiggins Graphic’s DigiPeel HD has been designed to create the best results for industrial textile printers and garment manufacturers. Using heat transfer, with both cold and tepid peel to ensure smooth easy release, DigiPeel HD is ideal for printing logos and images onto textiles using digital press and screen printing. Full colour printing capabilities create photo realistic printing results with optimal reproduction of original colours, whilst the use of gang run printing customisation and no pre-printing or drying time create a much faster transition between jobs and efficient production. An added benefit, when screen printing on the INO automatic screen printing line with its optical registration, is that it enables the backing to deliver a precise and high quality print.

Fabienne Cocheteau, Specialities Marketing Manager of Arjowiggins Graphic says: “A year since we launched DigiPeel HD, we’re delighted to be able to demonstrate the product’s performance using INO’s screen printing machine and Ricoh’s digital press, validating the product on some of the most advanced digital and screen printing technology available on the market.

At FESPA we have been able to demonstrate the quality of the product. Designed to provide the flexibility and full colour brought by digital printing as well as the soft touch and washability resistance given by screen printing, our DigiPeel HD papers are the best paper solution for textile printers, graphic digital printers and garment manufacturers.”

Arjowiggins Graphic and Antalis have today launched a new campaign to showcase the superb colour capabilities of recycled paper.  The campaign will see 2,500 brand books from Hakkasan Group’s Ling Ling bar and club concept distributed to printers, designers and corporates highlighting the excellent print capabilities of Cyclus Offset and Antalis’ Digigreen Gloss.

The award winning brand books, designed by North, were originally created to support the global launch of the naughtier and more vivacious sister to Hakkasan restaurants, Ling Ling.   Designed to represent the unique and hedonistic atmosphere of Ling Ling, the design featured stand-out bright and beautiful photography, 10 different covers and five different spines with variable text and a high level of vibrant colour.

The book covers have been printed on Digigreen Gloss 350gsm while inside pages feature Cyclus Offset 100% recycled 140gsm.  The campaign, which incorporates digital promotion and PR and also features substantial direct mail, with each book accompanied by a personalised card of eight different designs  printed on Cyclus Offset 300gsm.

2017 09 26 141446

On paper selection, Jeremy Coysten from North Design says: “For the original print run for Ling Ling we used a high gloss laminated cover to achieve a high-end fashion magazine feel, with Cyclus Offset selected for the inside because of its remarkable print performance which allowed us to keep the richness and colour really punchy.  The challenge was applying binding tapes to the spine as the glue wasn’t sticking to the gloss lamination so the printer had to sand back the gloss laminate by hand. To overcome the problem for this longer print run we used Digigreen gloss for the cover”.

The book, which was printed by FE Burman using their HP Indigo presses, won Best in Digital Print at the Antalis Review in 2016. 

The reprinted radiant books are an excellent demonstration of the high quality colour results recycled materials can achieve. Paul Regan, Director of FE Burman, says: “The mix of print quality of both Digigreen and Cyclus Offset and also the efficiency and technology of the HP Indigo presses, has enabled us to produce a product of excellent quality and colour vibrancy”.

Angela DeVorchik, Operational Marketing Manager, Arjowiggins Graphic UK, says: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to re-print the award-winning Ling Ling book, and are very proud of the performance of Cyclus Offset in such a demanding colour print project. We’re excited to share the re-printed book with printing and design experts, and to demonstrate the stunning results achieved when using recycled materials in vibrant and colourful printing”

Mike Bennett, Marketing Manger, Antalis UK  says: “This is an exceptionally well designed and printed book that truly reflects the character of the brand and how it appeals to its core audience.  We’re really pleased with the role our paper plays in achieving the overall quality of the printed product”

Arjowiggins Graphic, the leading manufacturer of environmental paper solutions has launched a creative campaign with HP to showcase the excellent print capabilities of sustainable papers and to celebrate innovation in digital printing.

The campaign will feature two stunning, limited edition, Art Deco style posters printed on Cocoon Silk 100% recycled 300gsm B2 paper.  It aims to educate and inspire graphic designers and printers to the endless possibilities of digital printing on sustainable papers using the unique HP Indigo 12000 press, which launched at Drupa last year.

2017 03 17 083135

‘The Girl with the Perfume’ poster capitalises on the trend for customised content.  Using the HP SmartStream Mosaic application, Arjowiggins Graphic is creating 2,000 personalised and individualised prints so that every single one is totally unique.  Each beautifully designed print will include a customer name and a unique background demonstrating print possibilities of HP SmartStream.  HP SmartStream helps create sophisticated, custom prints through a simple variable data tool that allows designers to individualise any print job image, text, and colours, creating virtually unlimited variations of the design to maximise impact.

‘The Girl with a Cap’ poster incorporates the new HP Indigo Electroink in Fluorescent Pink in its design. Due to the fluorescent characteristics of the ink, the poster’s striking image will even glow under UV light.  Both technologies are available on other HP Indigo presses and B2 size paper can also be printed on the HP Indigo 10000 press.

With this campaign, Arjowiggins Graphic and HP will demonstrate that it is possible to create prints which have a lower environmental impact and achieve innovative, high quality and unlimited design possibilities with cost effective short runs, or even individual prints that allow micro-segmentation, delivering a more personal, unique and emotionally engaging message.

Angela De Vorchik, Operational Marketing Manager, Arjowiggins Graphic UK says: “Sustainability and the environment are increasingly on everybody’s agenda, making these issues of key importance for designers and printers. With this campaign we are not only able to demonstrate print innovation but also the print excellence of Cocoon and recycled paper generally with a visually compelling and truly beautiful product.  Cocoon is comparable to virgin fibre papers in whiteness and print quality yet saves energy, water, wood, CO2 and greenhouse gasses – diverting waste from landfill”.

Carlos Lahoz, sustainability and environmental manager at HP says: “We’re delighted to be able to demonstrate HP Indigo digital printing technology using Cocoon recycled paper.  Our partnership with Arjowiggins Graphic started in 2012 as Alliance One partner, and we’ve continuously worked together to ensure that our industry-leading digital printing technology perfectly support sustainable papers.  This campaign not only demonstrates the versatility of Arjowiggins Graphic’s recycled papers but also provides a glimpse of the power of personalisation and individualisation using some of the most advanced digital printing technology available on the market, the HP Indigo 12000.”

The campaign, which launches on 14 March 2017, will be supported by the launch of a new Cocoon swatch and website, available in five languages and with an improved customer experience.  It will also offer designers the opportunity to participate in free workshops to discover and explore the infinite possibilities of digital print.

CyclusPrint is a 100% recycled matt-coated natural white printing paper for use in both full colour and black and white printing and ideal for a variety of uses whilst Cyclus Offset is a 100% recycled uncoated natural white paper that accentuates the creative message, where touch and feel combine with and support – the visual image. 

Angela De Vorchik, Operational Marketing Manager at Arjowiggins Graphic UK, said: “Our partnership with the NGO ChildFund International enables us and our customers to make a genuine difference to the life of a child. Cyclus is rich in environmental and ethical principles including being manufactured to the most stringent environmental certifications therefore joining forces with ChildFund International is a natural fit.For this year’s Cyclus campaign we have chosen an impactful approach as we encourage our customers to view the insightful videos showcasing how important it is for children to have a safe passage to get to school.”

Lisa Gaspar, Communication Manager of Un Enfant par la Main, a partner of ChildFund International, “Our action towards helping children, leads us to meet passionate men and women, as well as committed companies who want to participate into building a better world. Thanks to Arjowiggins Graphics’ support, whose vision and commitment enables associations such as ours to carry out our work, 100 young girls from isolated and remote villages in India will be able to receive much needed education transport. With Arjowiggins Graphic, we share common values based on respect, listening, careand humanity”.

Un Enfant par la Mainis very proud to count Arjowiggins Graphic amongst its generous donors , who through its Cyclus brand will increase awareness of our cause to their customer base.”

The campaign is being rolled out in the UK by Antalis a stockist of Cyclus.  Mike Bennett, Marketing Manager Antalis UK comments: “We are proud that this Cyclus campaign supports children across the globe. Through this partnership approach we are able to showcase to businesses the high-end shade and finish available for their printed communication as well as the first-rate green credentials of this innovative range. When compared to the manufacture of non-recycled papers the manufacturing process reduces energy consumption, uses less water, diverts waste from landfill and the CO2 emissions are substantially lower. This environmental story helps contribute to a business’s message and has been neatly included in the campaign mailer to assist customers.”
