Green!


Welcome! Here’s the DeeperCards Green Statement…

DeeperCards greetings cards no longer come with cellophane wrap of any kind – the cards are all plastic-free and fully recyclable!

Regarding shipping and packaging, I try to use as little wasteful materials as possible. If you order 50+ cards they’ll be sent wrapped in recycled and reused grey-brown paper (also fully recyclable). If you order fewer than 50 cards they’ll be sent in a reusable envelope, or loose in a reused and reusable jiffy bag.

Regarding producing the cards, see my printer’s Green Policy below:

1) PAPER:
All our paper is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. They make sure that 7 trees are planted for each one felled. We use 9 Lives 100% Recycled Paper for our offset and 9 Lives 55 silk for our coated range of flyers, business cards, folders, posters, letterheads and comp slips.

There are no cost effective 100% recycled coated papers available on the market at this time. However, the coated gloss and silk paper we use and endorse have a recycled paper content of 55% and is a certified FSC Paper.

2) INK:
The inks we use on our digital and litho presses are soy or vegetable based rather than the standard oil based inks.

3) SEALANTS:
Inert water based protective coatings are used rather than polymer based for litho work.

4) PROCESS:
We use low alcohol or alcohol free printing presses for litho.

5) WASTE:
All waste we produce is segregated, reused or recycled.
