Holiday Cards – Eco-friendly options

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Ordering holiday cards online is getting better every year so that now it is has evolved to be the easiest fastest and most painless process! There are many great companies to choose from.

Many people sing the praises of Minted.com They have a unique approach where they hold monthly design challenges amongst graphic designers from all over the world and their community selects the best designs. This guarantees you’ll always be presented with the best hip and happening designs as well as the old tried and true. You can choose between several paper choices with a premium 100% recycled thick paper being among the choices. Options include using your own photo(s) to create your card or choosing from one of the over 240 non-photo cards. Postcards are also available at Minted.com

 


 


Night Owl Paper Goods is another online company worth checking out. Their designs are cute with a distinctive vintage look. They also have many designs available to work around your photo(s) as well as many “no photo” options. The unique feature is their materials …your cards can be printed on wood (eco-friendly sustainably-harvested birch) or paper (eco-friendly, FSC certified paper made with zero-emission wind-generated power). Either choice is sure to be a holiday hit. Many of their designs are created to be reused as holiday tree ornaments which makes them even more precious to the card recipients.

 

Recycled Hand Painted Sardine Can – Mexican Folk Art

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

I love a good sardine! Is this creepy or cute? This Etsy artist surely got his daily dosage of omega3 fish oils before creating these wonderful pieces of Day of the Dead folk art. This piece is dated and hand signed by artist Joe William Crabtree.

Let the Halloween season begin!
