Artcadia strives to practice progressive, eco-friendly printing where possible. Our letterpress and hot foil items are printed on 600gsm 100% cotton papers. These are made using recycled cotton rag by a UK Paper Mill. Being eco-friendly doesn’t compromise the luxurious element of our stationery. Our papers are super thick, luxurious and have a tactile texture.
Our non-metallic letterpress inks are made from soy, these are 'greener' than more commonly used rubber based inks.
Our digitally printed items are produced using FSC accredited papers, some 100% recycled wood pulp. Our digital printer, a HP Indigo, is one of the greenest on the market to date.
We often advise customers to use wedding websites where possible for their 'further details/particulars'. We also suggest using an email address for RSVPs. Cutting down on the number of insert cards not only saves a little money, but also makes for more eco-friendly stationery.
