For smart, sophisticated brand packaging

Carta Elega - folding boxboard (GC1)

Carta Elega is a fully coated bleached paperboard with coated back, available in a basis weight range of 205-380g/m² and suitable for offset, gravure, flexo and digital printing.

Carta Elega provides premium print quality with superior visual smoothness. Its blade coating on the reverse adds to its versatility for smart brand packaging applications.
