EBB has introduced Lessebo Colours, a new range of environmentally friendly uncoated coloured papers, designed for ‘maximum expression and minimal [environmental] footprint’ with a palette of 48 shades specially developed for luxury packaging applications.

Compatible with both dry toner and inkjet print technologies (though not guaranteed for HP Indigo), the papers are manufactured by Lessebo Paper at its mill located in a densely forested area of Småland, Sweden, and is described as ‘one of the most climate-friendly papers in the world’. Lessebo has over 300 years of experience in the paper industry and a track record in sustainability:  timber has been harvested from the same forest and water used from the same lake since 1693.

All production site energy is generated solely from biomass fuel, with excess renewable energy used to supply district heating to local homes. Lessebo Paper claims to have one of the lowest CO2 emissions in the paper industry at 25kg of CO2 per tonne of paper.

EBB is stocking 40 colours plus a Design White, with the option to order the remaining eight shades from mill stock. The range is available from 80 to 350gsm in a variety of sizes. There is also the option to have stock embossed with one of 18 different textures.
