Plastic Free Option Available Now!

We all know that we need to minimise our impact on the planet. It’s no secret that plastic can be damaging to the environment. That’s why we have decided to introduce a ‘plastic free’ option. Our packaging solution is a small peelable sticker which secures both card & envelope together. We acknowledge that each stockist will have unique needs when it comes to packaging, which is why we are making ‘plastic free’ a choice.

We care about the planet very much

  • All of our envelopes are made from either recycled paper or FSC materials.
  • To reduce our carbon footprint, we print our greetings cards in-house.
  • We only use FSC certified materials for our greetings cards, jotter pads & notebooks.
  • All of our packaging is recyclable & where possible we reuse packaging.

Things you should know 

Earlier this year, we did a survey regarding the use of cello wrappers & the vast majority of independents told us that naked cards weren’t right for them right now. This is why as standard, our cards will come packed in cello wrappers. If you’d prefer your cards to be plastic free this is no problem, however you will need to let us know. Plastic free cards will be supplied packed in 6’s in a large cello bag for protection during transit. There is no price difference to our usual trade price due to duplication of production & storage process for additional stock. The positioning of the peelable sticker will vary depending upon the card design – we will ensure words are not obscured. The minimum order is 6 cards per design & it may take us slightly longer than usual to process orders which are plastic free, simply because it’s a new process for us.

Ordering online?

If you’d like your order to be plastic free, please pop us a note in the comments box. The minimum order for plastic free is 6 cards per design. Bear in mind our online ordering system will allow you to order 3 cards per design, and if you do so & choose plastic free, your order may be delayed whilst we get in touch to discuss this. 

Ordering via an agent?

Please ensure your agent pops a comment on the order form if you’d like your order to be supplied plastic free.

We have a passion for paper, fonts, colour and design (not to mention a slight obsession with envelopes). It’s all about the details. We create timeless designs with a few quirky additions to make us smile.
