Antalis gets exclusive on Eska Black: bridging the gap between sustainability and luxury

Antalis UK and Ireland has been named as the exclusive stockists of Eska Black – a black solid board with natural texture and minimal environmental impact. Specially designed for luxury graphical and packaging applications, this 100% sustainable board also boasts minimal environmental impact.

Eska Black extends Eska’s renowned range of products, offering a deep black, sustainable packaging and graphical board application option, which has low impact carbon emissions. Antalis is set to launch the new range in May 2021, giving consumers a fashionable, premium board solution.

The board is sturdy and strong, with a natural texture and excellent converting properties. Eska maintains a promise that its boards lay flat and stay flat, even when they have been processed into end products; and Eska Black is no different.

Eska Black’s high rigidity adds to the luxury feel of the board, while its clever three-layer construction, with the core layer made of 100% recycled fibre, sandwiched between two deep black virgin fibre liners, results in a top quality, 70% recycled solid board – the perfect balance of sustainability and opulence.

Available in three weights: 1000mic, 1500mic, and 1750mic, all of which are easy to cut, die, crease, score, gouge, mill, punch, drill, and emboss/deboss.

Antalis graphical board development manager Steve Chappell commented: “Eska Black is a solid black, due to its black core. It is a robust product that is very cost-effective. Like all of our products, it can also be fully carbon offset via a choice of schemes offered by Antalis. We are delighted that Eska Black has recently been used for the cover and stand of the prestigious Dorchester 2021 calendar.”
