Josh Garcia, director of creative and marketing at de Boulle, oversaw the design and production of the magazine, “The goal of the magazine is to showcase product, lifestyle and luxury. This magazine is truly a first for de Boulle. The unique layout and design features professional models photographed by industry leading photographers Judson Baker and John Parrish, who captured luxurious product and lifestyle images to uniquely communicate the de Boulle story.”

The Boulle family, with a longstanding appreciation for finely crafted, premium products, selected Mohawk Superfine when it came time to print.

Garcia says, “We looked at many different (paper) samples before we selected Mohawk Superfine. We wanted a premium paper that was uncoated and could capture the details of the photography.  We selected Mohawk due to its performance on press and how Superfine conveys luxury through thickness and texture. Many luxury retailers are utilizing a glossy stock – so Superfine differentiates us from our competitors. Superfine exemplifies luxury, so it easily communicates our products, plus the color hold out and timeless appeal are amazing! Superfine was the perfect choice.”
