At the end of September, Monaco hosted LUXE PACK, the premier international trade event in the luxury packaging field for over 30 years.
Every year, the fair brings together manufacturers of creative packaging from more than 30 different countries. The undisputed advantage of this event is that it showcases both big international names in luxury packaging and small firms offering highly specific know-how.
The quality and distinction of ARCHES® papers are well known to the exhibitors at this fair. Some of them use them in their packaging designs. Here is one example:
Wine label for the Carcenac estate printed on ARCHES® Expression paper by Lorenz Boegli at the Atelier für Siebdruck, a Swiss screen printer always on the lookout for new printing techniques. The label is printed with retroreflective ink to produce a graphic that is only visible in a flash of light.

Design and innovation take centre stage at LUXE PACK, but there is more evidence on show than ever before of how the industry is mobilising to reduce its environmental impact and guarantee ethical sourcing. Eco-design, green innovation and sustainable packaging feature prominently among the concerns expressed by consumers. A “LUXE PACK in green” prize is awarded during the fair to highlight and reward exhibitors’ sustainable packaging innovations and responsible approaches.
