As a design and print company, we have made our own efforts to help with the struggle of being an environmentally friendly parent. Here’s how:
Paperless Alternatives: All the stationery designs in our births and children ranges are available on a download-only basis. This makes it easy to distribute your baby birth announcement cards and christening invitations templates digitally instead of printing.
- Digital Stationery: Along the same lines, we have recently launched a collection of electronic invitations and announcements for smartphones. As part of that, we have launched digital birth announcement cards, and christening invitations for WhatsApp and text message. This gives you virtually zero carbon footprint.
- Carbon Offsetting: For some products, like photo baby thank you cards, they really are best when printed. For printed products, we have launched our micro-offset printing service. This allows you to balance the carbon emissions of whatever it is you are printing with us. Find out more about carbon neutral printing
- Sustainable paper: all of the excellent stationery card stocks we use on our site are taken from sustainably managed forests. This means minimal harm to global carbon sequestration, and to indigenous peoples or endangered habitats. Find out more about what we are doing to become an eco-friendly stationer.
