Sustainable Cards Designed & Made in NZ
Happy New Year! We are back from our Summer holidays and all orders are being shipped as normal.
The Paper People are based in Dunedin. All of our cards are designed by us and are locally printed on sustainable paper. We believe giving cards is an important part of being human but they don't have to hurt our environment.
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 protecting indigenous people’s rights to the methods of felling trees.
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 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.
