FSC® Magazine 2016
PERGRAPHICA is FSC-certified, and the FSC Germany trusts PERGRAPHICA.
Sustainability you can touch and feel
FSC® Germany was looking for a high quality FSC®-certified paper to print its annual magazine. They wanted a paper that conveys a high value when the readers hold it in their hands, and also underscores the demanding quality and sustainability standards of the organisation. PERGRAPHICA® was chosen, as it fulfills all of these demands thanks to its unique touch-and-feel as well as the environmentally friendly production methods.
The world of forest certification
The goal of the FSC® was to take the readers on a journey through the world of sustainable forest certification and give them an impression of what socio-ecological certification based on FSC® standards means for the forests and certified wood and paper products. In doing so, it was important to take the most important groups and subject areas of the FSC® into consideration while providing readers interested in sustainability issues with a high quality and interesting magazine using the limited resources of a non-profit organisation.
Natural quality of the paper
In line with the topic, PERGRAPHICA® Natural Smooth was chosen – which has a soft white shade that gave the pictures in the FSC® Magazine a natural vibrancy. The highly detailed embossing on the cover stands out perfectly on the 300 g/m² paper. FSC® Germany is very pleased with how well its annual edition turned out. Many members and stakeholders provided positive feedback and praised the quality of the paper, the design, the processing and the print.
With PERGRAPHICA®, we were able to increase the quality of our FSC® magazine significantly, which each of our readers noticed immediately, and for which we received a great deal of enthusiastic feedback. Of course, as an international certification organisation, we need to ensure the paper we use carries our certification and fulfils high environmental standards.
