Our Green Statement

The world is a beautiful place and we are doing our part to keep it that way.  Heartstrings Paper & Press loves creating beautiful and memorable invitations,  stationery in a sustainable manner.

As we see it being green isn’t a trend, it’s a lifestyle. It’s not new, it’s the way we’ve always done its.In the paper and printing business, that’s no easy task. From our offices to our eco-friendly product mix, making responsible choices influences all that we do.

No matter the color of our products, they’re all green. We strive to work with companies that support sustainable forestry and/or use alternative energy in production. Most of the papers in our collection have components of recycled products and are made without chlorine chemistry. By eliminating chlorine, the pulps have a high tear and fiber strength. The stronger the paper, the great it’s ability to be recycled.

We have 3 stocks that are made with 100% post consumer fiber, and 9 stocks that are 100% tree-free made from either cotton or bamboo fibers. We carefully maximize the yield of each stock saving paper and money.

We’re environmentally conscious even when it comes to shipping our products. All of our packing materials are biodegradable or recyclable. Made from natural vegetable starch, our packing “peanuts” can be dissolved in water or planted into a compost pile.

Heartstrings Paper and Press actively seeks ways to shrink our carbon footprint. We us online invoicing and proofing, (clients are provided with one hard copy proof)
