Grafische Groep Matthys wins Invercote Award 2015

MatthijsThe Grafische Groep Matthys (Turnhout, Belgium) recently won the international Invercote Award 2015 in the ´Best Design´ category for their exclusive luxury folding carton packaging for saffron. “This prize is a recognition for the special products made in Turnhout using the innovative in-line cold foil printing process.” Using this technique they make luxury graphics products for clients throughout Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and France, with a small number of clients in Germany and the United Kingdom.

The printers recently invested in a high quality cutter and complete folder/gluer for processing the remarkable folded carton packaging. The exclusive folding carton packaging for saffron was the entry for which the jury awarded the prize to Grafische Groep Matthys. The design department of the Turnhout printing company created the luxury packaging for its client ‘Golden Result Saffron’ in the Netherlands. It was produced on Invercote cardboard using the in-line cold foil printing process and given a soft-touch lacquer finish.

Iggesund and the Grafische Groep Matthys will be presenting it in De Monsterkamer in Amsterdam on Thursday 19 March. The prize winning saffron packaging will also be shown.
