Sizes and Materials

What paper can I choose?

You can choose from four different paper types:

Invercote

Invercote has a smooth matt coated surface on the print side with a tactile uncoated reverse side for easy writing on the inside.

This material works well for all types of card designs.

Uncoated Board

Uncoated board is a brilliant white shade and gives a tactile, porous feel to the work. Good stiffness and a natural look and feel.

Silk Coated

Silk finish board is exceptionally smooth and coated on both sides creating a low shine but without glare, it is a bright white shade and great for fine detail.

Accent Antique

GF Smith Accent Antique is a premium quality textured material in alabaster (high white shade).

Unrivalled look and feel and works beautifully for traditional designs or to give an exclusive appearance to cards.

Climate Neutral Printing

How does climate neutral printing work?

Your greeting cards will be printed climate neutrally using presses powered by solar energy.

With help from ClimatePartner we calculate the CO2 emissions of the specific printed product, the emissions caused by the production of the raw materials, the print process and transportation are all taken into account.

The CO2 emissions are offset by supporting a recognised carbon offset project that reduces CO2 emissions effectively, our chosen project is Kasigau Wildlife Corridor, Kenya.

On completion of your cards we will email you a certificate verifying the calculation.

We make the contribution to climate protection on your behalf, we are your partner.
