Our greeting cards are plastic free
  • We do not use cellophane bags for our greeting cards they are supplied without cellophane.

  • In this way we save tons of plastic waste going into the environment.

Card Group is an FSC certified company. 
(Forest Stewardship Council)

  • All our greeting cards are printed on FSC certified paper.

  • All envelopes used for our greeting cards are made from FSC paper.

  • Bows & Ribbons packaging material is ECO friendly. All plastic packaging has been removed and replaced with paper packaging.

  • Balloons packaging material is ECO friendly. All plastic packaging has been removed and replaced with paper packaging.

Timber regulation
  • We follow the timber regulation. Paper products come under the EU Timber Regulations (EUTR), which prohibit the importation and use of illegally harvested timber and timber products.

Printing ink
  • We use soya ink (plant base) for printing and water-based sealers as standards. This ink meets the EU REACH standard.


  • This means the printer uses vegetable inks & the environmental benefits of using these are that they are a renewable resource, conserve petroleum supplies, reduce VOCs (volatile organic compounds). At the end of the” life” of the product vegetable inks can be easier to” de-ink” during the recycling process and therefore easier to recycle.
