Lecta's Cartiere del Garda in Italy introduces addition to its GardaPat 13 range, which features acid-free, FSC-certified woodfree coated papers with matt surface, high bulk; new GardaPat 13 Bianka grade, unlike other products in range, is pure white

BARCELONA, Spain , October 21, 2013 (press release) – Cartiere del Garda, part of the Lecta Group, is proud to introduce a new product from the GardaPat 13 range: GardaPat 13 BIANKA.

GardaPat 13 BIANKA is a paper with all the characteristics which have been the success of the existing GardaPat 13 products:

  • Woodfree coated paper with matt surface and high bulk -
  • Guaranteed 1.3 volume
  • Velvet surface
  • ECF - Acid free
  • Age resistant
  • Always guaranteed as FSC® certified


The distinguishing feature of this new paper - compared to GardaPat 13 KLASSICA, which comes in a warm natural shade, and to GardaPat 13 KIARA, in natural white - lies in its pure white shade, similar to that of the other papers from our “Excellent Collection.”

GardaPat 13 BIANKA is available in 115, 135 and 150 gsm.

Despite challenging economic conditions, Cartiere del Garda continues to invest in the research of innovative products, anticipating its customers’ needs and combining maximum quality with environmental respect.

The entire GardaPat 13 range is now produced with new technology that enables even higher product quality and superior printing results, including:

  • higher printing gloss
