Custom Eco-Friendly Invitations, Announcements & More ~ Paper Culture

With the art of personal, hand-written letters and notes becoming something of a lost art in this age of texting,  Skyping and connecting via social media networks, this Mom is insistent about maintaining this important, albeit old school, social skill with my own children.  Thoughtful gestures, kindnesses and gifts are acknowledged with a personal, hand-written note, often sent with a piece of artwork.

Personalizing these notes and thanks does not mean the stationary we use needs to be plain.  My children appreciate having their own stationary stock to use for their notes.  After the Teen Diva attended what seemed like easily over 100 graduation open house events this early summer, our stock of stationary was dwindling precariously low.  I was pleased to have an opportunity to explore the stationary products offered by Paper Culture, an eco-friendly online resource.   With some many custom options in Thank You cards and note cards, it was quite hard to choose for our initial order.

To replenish our every occasion stock, we selected simple cards with colorful graphics, personalized with each child's name that allowed ample space for adding their personal messages.  The brightly colored circle would be appropriate for nearly any note writing situation.

Using the ordering system at the Paper Culture website was simple and quick, once I chose a design from the wealth of options available.  I found announcements, invitations, thank you cards, as well as holiday cards and even bamboo wall art.  I appreciated the wide variety of options in each category, both gender specific and neutral, with fun to sophisticated graphics, as well as numerous selections that could be further personalized with my own photos.  Within the ordering system, customers are welcomed to contact the Paper Culture design specialists for assistance in customizing or placing their order.


Almost immediately upon placing my order with Paper Culture, I received an email confirmation, assuring me that all was well and my order would soon be on its way.  Our note cards were shipped quickly and arrived within one week.  I was pleased to note the quality of the card stock and that my order was exactly as I had anticipated, with correct spelling and colors matching the design I had selected on the Paper Culture website.   I love that the white-faced simple note cards we were shaded in a color that complemented the design on the  reverse of the card.  The weight of the stock was also immediately noticeable and spoke to the quality of these cards.  I learned that Paper Culture uses 130 lb stock, as opposed to most companies who offer their products on 80 -110 lb stock.

Perhaps even more important that the wide selection, excellent service and high quality level of my order, is the commitment of the Paper Culture company to providing eco-friendly products for their consumers and their commitment to green operational practices.   On the reverse of each note card was a simple statement, with Paper Culture's pledge, "Every Order Plants A Tree".  As of the most recent count, Paper Culture has planted over 200,000 trees.

Adorable cards. I love that they are "green"

I agree with you that writing is becoming a lost art and lots of schools are now not teaching cursive so I think it is very important to teach our children how to stay "green" and convey our messages through the art of writing. I enjoyed these fun designs.

Sometimes I will write a note and pop in the main just because it has become so unexpected these days. I like the idea of using a card for it :)
