Auroraprint - eco-friendly business cards and stationery.

Recycled (and recyclable) Business Cards and Stationery.

Recycled and Environmentally Friendly (Eco-Friendly) Business Cards and Stationery: stock types and foil print.

Nearly all the business cards and stationery items we produce are printed on environmentally friendly materials, either using recycled card or card produced from FSC® certified materials.

Many card manufacturers are now offering 100% recycled card, or card that is FSC® certified, meaning that your business cards and stationery don't need to be harmful to the environment, either in their production or after they've fulfilled their purpose.

Can foil printed stationery still be recycled?

Foil recyclability
(the following information is from Foilco, one of our main foil suppliers):

Foil stamping is eco-friendly and you should have no concerns about any negative long-term effects that your printed materials will have on the environment.
Foil stamping is a totally dry, solvent free process.
Paper & board that has been foil stamped can be recycled.
Foil has no visible effects in slowing down the rate of biodegradation of the paper & board.
Foil also does not affect the re-pulpability of the paper substrate.
