As stationery personalisation isn’t limited to design, your choice of paper/material can play a major role in the way your artwork is perceived and appeals to your customers. Introducing recycled products such as eco jotters, recycled greeting cards or green scrapbooks to your range is a positive step towards helping to conserve the Earth’s natural resources.

It obviously does not mean that you should exclusively go green giving up on anything you’ve done so far. But it is more than worth looking into it, trying it and eventually adopting it. This article will give you the reasons you should consider eco-friendly recycled products and how it can be beneficial for your brand.

 

What is recycled paper printing?

To make it short, it is as simple as it sounds. Eco-friendly printing can consist of many mediums (inks, printing volumes, etc) but printing on recycled paper simply means that card paper stock is supplemented with recycled paper. Which for example can be old greeting cards or used craft papers that will be given a second life instead of being thrown away.
