Did you know there are a number of interesting, recycled boards and papers available that can add a real difference to your marketing collateral? If you’re looking for a sustainable approach to your printed materials, then we’ve listed a few below for you to consider:
It’s Pooped! It’s Pulped!! It’s Printed!!!
One of our absolute favourites is the Pooped, Pulped and Printed range. Poo papers and boards are made from 50% recycled fibre, which includes 10% pulped dung and the remaining fibre is sourced from a mill using only FSC pulp (see images below). Other papers and boards available in the Pooped, Pulped and Printed range include Ellie Poo and Rhino Poo. However, the ultimate ‘Pooped’ option that we consider perfect for Christmas cards is the Reindeer Poo board, which comes in a 280gsm board weight.
A number of years ago, we promoted the Ellie Poo papers and boards, but as digital printing was in its infancy, it proved to be too expensive for most businesses. However, today this is not the case, as recycled boards are more readily available. And, as digital printing has improved dramatically, this has also made it much more cost-effective when it comes to producing short run items using more expensive boards. Therefore, if you’re looking for a fabulous recycled option for your printed marketing, it is now possible for almost every budget. So, talk to us today if you would like to choose the Pooped, Pulped and Printed range for your marketing materials.
Natural plants and flowers
How about a lovely, textured recycled board that contains dried seeds and petals? This board weight is 240gsm and, as it is a fairly bulky board, it works well for business cards.
Reused materials for weddings
Recycled confetti board and recycled glitter boards are fabulous options for wedding stationery. Did you know there is even a recycled bank note board available?

Moving onto one of the fastest growing, renewable resources in the world… Bamboo! Growing up to 1 metre per day, bamboo absorbs more CO2 and releases up to 30% more oxygen than its equivalent mass of trees. Plus, it’s anti-allergic and has low VOC emissions (Volatile Organic Compounds). Did you know that you can buy bamboo clothing, bedding, pillows, beer and even wine?!! The list is endless…
At The Practical Printer, we have a great range of bamboo and recycled papers, boards and envelopes. So, if you’re looking for eco-friendly, printed marketing materials, just get in touch or call 0116 253 1222 – we’d love to help you promote your business.
