NZ Made Greeting Cards. Birthday Cards, Everyday Cards and more.
The Paper People are based in a small studio in Dunedin. We design all our greeting cards in house & have them sustainably made in NZ. We believe giving cards and receiving cards is one of the special things in life but they don't have to harm the earth.
More About Our Cards
The paper we use for our cards is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and our printer is Chain of Custody certified for printing on FSC® paper stocks. This means our paper comes from a forest which is managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner with wood being tracked from forest to card!
Our printing method gives a very soft matt finish much like traditional offset printing methods but with a digital machine which uses compostable ink and allows us to print small runs with no waste. This clever printing machine is incredibly eco-friendly taking into account the full product lifecycle, supply chain, and end of life.
We’ve taken great care to ensure everything including our packaging from the awesome people at R3pack is recyclable. That’s why though it looks pretty we’ve stayed away from any foiling with our designs as they usually can’t be recycled.
