Mohawk, North America’s largest privately-owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, is unveiling a new resource called TWELVE, designed to showcase a versatile and growing collection of expertly engineered packaging papers and folding boards.

The TWELVE kit highlights samples of Mohawk’s tactile papers for premium packaging. The outside container for the TWELVE kit is a memorable marriage of 2 very different papers: Curious Collection Skin Pink with its signature smooth surface and super-saturated color, laminated to Curious Collection Particles Snow featuring subtle, snow-like flecks and 100% post consumer waste. Pasting these two sheets suggests the possibilities The Curious Collection offers to creating a memorable and high-impact packaging design.

“Whether a project calls for sustainable materials, rich color, or beautiful textures, Mohawk has assembled a versatile portfolio of papers available worldwide which bring sophisticated visual appeal and superior performance to a brand’s most demanding packaging product,” says Chris Harrold, Vice President and Creative Director, Mohawk.

The TWELVE packaging kit contains a dozen die cut boxes featuring a selection of tactile packaging papers. Shimmering metallics, distinctive textures, and exquisite colors showcase the understated elegance of the Mohawk, Arjowiggins and Curious Collection packaging paper lines:
