Eco-Modern Carducopia

22Jun06

As much as I love greeting cards (and used to design my own), these days I seem to always find myself short-handed when that special birthday or thank you moment comes. No discretionary time!

One solution: the Cardstock Box from Set is a veritable cornucopia of minimalist cards for every occasion you’ll need this year. Birthdays, valentines, mother’s day, father’s day, holiday and new year’s cards–all printed on 100% post-consumer paper.

I’m also attracted to Set’s line of foil-stamped chipboard postcards which give scrap stock from local paper mills new life and new purpose. They’re handsome, modern and oh yes, affordable ($8-16 for sets of seven or eight). All are made in the U.S.

Although traditional inks are used for printing, Alison Riley at Set is considering a switch into soy inks in the future (which is still being perfected in the graphics world). Stay tuned.
