Eco Friendly Paper : Baron Cards Peacock Quills Wedding Invitations

Eco Friendly Paper
Baron Cards Peacock Quills Wedding Invitations

There’s just something about peacock quills — the vivid colors, the magical graphic patterns found therein — that I find irresistible. Baron Cards has a lovely, whimsical representation of the beautiful quills in their Peacock Quills wedding stationery set. You can have the wispy, colorful quills on everything from your wedding and shower invitations to RSVP cards, programs, and thank you cards.

If you’re planning a “green” wedding, then Baron Cards will be right up your alley. They focus on eco-chic (love that term) wedding stationery and print their invitations on earth friendly papers, including 100% tree free paper made from 100% recovered cotton fibers. They’ve also designed their current collection to have only 2-5% ink coverage and use vegetable based inks to reduce the eco-impact of their print production.

Closing Up Shop

Apologies for the lack of posting this week. I’m in the process of closing Beccalights, my online candle shop, and am working hard to keep on top of the orders that I’ve received since announcing that I’m closing up shop. As a result, posting on Paper Crave will be sporadic over the next couple of weeks, but I’ll be back to posting regularly soon!

Treeo Design Pompom Chicken Gift Boxes

Treeo Design is an environmentally friendly, upstate New York based shop that specializes in fun, modern gift wrap and gift boxes (it looks like they also have wallpaper and fabric designs on the way).

All of the paper that Treeo uses in their products is FSC Certified, which means that no trees were unnecessarily harmed during the printing of their products. They also use vegetable based inks to print their designs.

I’m quite partial to Treeo’s “Pompom Chicken” design, available on both gift boxes and gift wrap, which I find absolutely irresistable!

Eco Friendly Paper : Porridge Papers Plantable Herb Cards

Eco Friendly Paper
Eco Friendly Porridge Papers Plantable Herb Seed Cards

I’ve talked about the trend in plantable cards previously, and I love the idea of a card that keeps on giving and is friendly for the environment. Since I also love to cook with fresh herbs, I was naturally drawn to these plantable pretties from Porridge Papers. The set of five letterpress cards is printed on Porridge Papers’ handmade, herb embedded papers, which grow into basil, chive, parsley, dill, and thyme when planted. This is such a wonderful concept, and the cards would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to garden or cook. $15.00 for the set.

If you’re interested in handmade papers, Porridge has some fantastic lines, including the Super Tasty Collection, the Super Fresh Collection, and the Super Dazzle Collection.
