To be part of the Group's anniversary, the French postal service, La Poste, has achieved a technological feat with an original postage stamp that combines innovative mirror-effect printing and the traditional copperplate engraving technique. The stamp’s mirror effect echoes Saint-Gobain’s historic business while at the same presenting one of the four of its 350th anniversary pavilions. Engraving is used for the historic glassmaking building in the village of Saint-Gobain, which gave its name to the Group. The franking stamp shows another of the four pavilions created for the Company’s anniversary and exhibited on Place de la Concorde in Paris (France), from October 15 to 31, 2015. The stamp, engraving and stamp-collection document are available in selected post offices and online.
