In an effort to cut down on plastic waste, we're excited to announce that we're beginning the transition to Kard Klasps – a new way to package greeting card and envelope together with no plastic and no damage once removed! This one small step will help us eliminate thousands of plastic sleeves each year, supplying you and your customers with a 100% recyclable product. Together we can make a difference one step at a time.
We know you probably have questions! Hopefully this will answer a few of them:
Q: When can I expect this change to happen?
This will be a slow transition. It will likely be that you may receive some cards in sleeves and some cards with the kard klasp for the first few months as we transition our production process. Our letterpress cards will continue to be sleeved.
Q: I have price stickers, what do I do?
Option 1: Place the price sticker on the back of the Kard Klasp Option 2: We can send you cello sleeves with your first order of cards with kard klaps to help ease the transition. Please make a note on your order that you need sleeves.
Q: Why not just use the biodegradable cello?
We have looked into and talked quite a bit about this option internally. These sleeves only degrade at certain temperatures and specialized facilities, which don’t make them as ideal is one would think. We feel that the klasp is an overall better option.
Q: Won’t the cards get dirty?
We have talked with several other manufacturers who have transitioned into using this product. They have experienced minimum damage of their products, with the majority of their customers appreciating how clean the products look on their shelves. We encourage you to try them, and if you start experiencing extreme damage, we will work with you on replacements!
We know that this transition is not going to make everyone happy but we hope that the long term benefits of this will ultimately weigh out in the long run. We appreciate you!
