Many people, when they think of “recycled cards” think of cards that have a brown paper stock ‘industrial cardoboard box’ look to them. Well, not anymore. The technology for making paper from post consumer recycled paper has really taken off. Now, you can get cards on recycled paper that don’t have the ‘recycled paper look’ to them. In fact, you’d probably have a hard time seeing the difference between a card made from recycled paper and one that is made from non-recycled paper.
Here at CardsDirect, our line of recycled cards has proven so popular this year that we are looking to increase the number of cards printed on recycled paper.
So, for our Earth Day recycling series, I thought I’d put together a list of our top five selling recycled cards…none of which look even remotely like a cardboard box.
This is a modern and fun little birthday card with foil trim and a modern watercolor look. It’s an all around recycled paper birthday card that works well for anyone.
The ‘great events’ card can be used for any group celebration around the office. This is a good one to have handy as it can be used for anything.
Bright blue and silver foil make this card a popular choice. The dancing balloons are a fun way to celebrate someone’s birthday.
