Tree-Free Cards to be printed in the UK! (News updated 25th October 2018)

We have some very exciting developments regarding Tree-Free Greeting Cards to share with you! Very soon, we will begin printing Tree-Free Cards and Envelopes right here in the UK, with all cards available to purchase as an individual item (rather than packs of 6), including their matching envelopes.

What does that mean for you? Well, it means that we are able to print on demand and supply you with the goods much quicker. There will also be an extensive range of back catalogue artwork to choose from, with none of the current designs being discontinued. You'll also be able to order on a single item basis with no minimum order quanities. But be rest assured, that this does not mean there will be a price increase, you will simply be able to purchase on a single card basis. Phew! 

So don't worry, we will still be using the same eco friendly production techniques to create them, as the same blank card is used! Meaning that this new printing method, still meets the Tree-Free brands standards and ethos.

During test prints and runs, there was NO noticeable difference whatsoever, between a card printed here or a card created within the USA. 

This new printing procedure is expected to take effect the week commencing 29th October 2018, as our data wizards now work on making these product changes to our website and ordering techniques. So you will shortly be seeing, individual card prices on our website.

Say NO, to single use plastic! (News updated 1st October 2018)

Plastic seems to be a hot discussion of late, with the word keep popping up in news articles, on the TV, on the radio, or just generally with people talking about ways we can help to minimise plastic waste.

Now, while plastic has become a part of everyone’s daily lives, there are ways we can promote the reuse of everyday items to reduce the amount of plastic waste.

The majority of the brands we sell, are supporters of eco-friendly production and work towards producing products that can be reused or even have been produced economically. For example The Mountain uses environmentally friendly dyes to create their artwear apparel, and Tree-Free Greetings print and production is generated from 100% solar energy.

Here are just a few of the products we sell, to support reusable items within your store:   

Tote Bags

Tote Bags from The Mountain are a great handy little shopper bag, to carry around with you throughout ones day. Whether that be to use when doing the supermarket shop, nipping into town, to carry your lunch into work or even bringing that paperwork home!

CLICK HERE to check out all of our current tote bag collection.

Barista Tumblers

Barista Tumblers, from either Tree-Free greetings or The Mountain, are a great way to minimise single plastic use waste. Coming in a range of designs and colours, there is a travel mug to suit just about every personality. These barista mugs are great for people on the go, and are designed to keep a beverage cold or hot for up to 12 hours. A lot of cafes and restaurants now for instance, are encouraging their customers to refill there bottles in store, free of charge.   

CLICK HERE to check out our range of Barista Tumblers.

Sportiva Water Bottle

The Sportiva water bottles from Tree-Free Greetings, are designed for a high flow are and even come with an internal straw, which can be washed and reused, rather than just ‘chucking out’ one time use plastic straws. Great for taking to the gym or wherever and grabbing by the easy to carry loop handle.
