Christmas Cards for 2020

Here at the Paper People, Christmas has come early with preparation under way to launch our collection of eco friendly and sustainable Christmas cards for you to shop online here in NZ. As always our Christmas cards are designed and printed in New Zealand and are made from eco friendly and FSC certified card stock. We don’t use plastic wrapping or metallic foils and all elements of The People's Christmas cards are easily recycled right from package you receive in the post through to the beautiful 120 gsm envelopes made by the excellent craftspeople at Encore Envelopes.

My inspiration for Christmas cards this year comes from our collection of heirloom Christmas ornaments and my favourite is the nutcracker - passed down to us from family in Germany. Our children have always been fascinated and a little wary of the Xmas nutcracker especially when small fingers have unwittingly been gently nipped in the nutcrackers ferocious teeth much to their surprise!

According to German folklore, nutcrackers bring good luck to your family and protect your home and is said to represent power and strength, serving like a watchdog guarding your family against danger. The nutcracker bares it’s teeth to evil spirits and serves as a messenger of good luck and goodwill. What better figure to gift on an NZ made Christmas card to your family and friends this Christmas.
