On 20 July 1969, a historical milestone took place: Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the Moon. His now-famous words were: "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." This memorable event was not only influential for the space research but had also a huge impact on popular culture because of the everlasting influence the Moon has always had on the Earth.
The Moon not only influences, but it is always there during the night harvest. It is part of a worldwide practice that’s increasingly the norm for harvesting grapes, in the dead of night. It results in better wine, lower energy costs and greater efficiency. Night harvesting got its start as early as 1970 or 1971, just a couple of years later of the “giant leap for mankind”.
But the Moon is not only influencing the Earth, but especially the humankind. Poets, writers, painters (etc.) have always been inspired by the same Moon all over the world.
For all these reasons and for the importance that the Moon covers and has and will always cover, almost like an homage, the Arconvert’s Moonlight is born.
Moonlight FSCTM Certified is an uncoated paper produced with wood-free primary pulp from responsible sources and a small percentage of synthetic fibers. The colour is a natural white shade and the texture has a pleasant vellum finish featuring high printing versatility. Moonlight´s most particular characteristic is a special technology that provides an elegant watermark effect with blind hot foil stamping. Moreover, the paper high substance makes it perfect for premium product labels featuring embossing or debossing finish. Combined with the brand new Arconvert’s permanent acrylic adhesive SH-9020TM this distinctive self-adhesive paper provides a perfect label adhesion to the bottle.
In bright sunlight, at Packaging Innovations 2019 the visitors will also find a preview of the self-adhesive paper Moonlight – just one of the innovations that Arconvert will be presenting at the upcoming edition of LabelExpo Europe 2019.
