Letters from the sky

Every snowflake is unique and what each one looks like depends equally on chance, temperature and the route from the cloud to the ground. At the end of the 1950s physicist and snow researcher Ukichiro Nakaya gave snowflakes the more poetic name of “Letters from the sky”.

Peter Dahmen, the designer of our 2016 unique greeting card from Iggesund, visited Iggesund on a snowy day in November when it literally poured down “letters from the sky”.

How can seven snowflakes transform into 44,000 unique ones?

Every snowflake is unique. A cloud holds both ice crystals and water in an unstable mixture. When the temperature falls, the ice crystals grow at the expense of the water droplets and build snowflakes. The basis of the 2016 greeting card from Iggesund Paperboard is seven snowflakes, which can be folded to create 44,716 different versions.
