As you might’ve spotted, we love colour at MOO, and today our favourite colour is GREEN – but not in the way you might think. Since we launched our Green Business Cards over nineteen months ago I’ve continued investigating, testing and generally sticking my nose into the world of super eco friendly papers.
While we’ve loved the paper we launched with, new papers are being developed all the time. My goal is always to keep one step ahead – with what I think are best possible papers available. Where recycled paper is concerned, it should not only should it make your work look amazing, but it should be so eco friendly it would make Mother Nature herself break into a smile.
So I’m pleased to announce that on the 22nd March we will be replacing our current green stock with our new ‘super eco friendly paper’. At 352gsm / 15.5pt this new, smooth white, non-laminated stock is one of the heaviest eco stocks guaranteed for our unique Printfinity presses.
The treatment applied to the stock allows you to print crisp photography or illustration with a fantastic tonal range and vivid colours. We’ve never thought that recycled stock should equal a compromise in quality, and I’m excited to say that with this paper, the difference between the Eco stock and the MOO Classic really is just the finish.
Made from 100% Post Consumer Waste and FSC certified, the eco credentials for this are even more amazing than our previous paper. It’s made with electricity generated by renewable, non polluting wind power from Green-e. (Green-e is the nation’s leading independent certification and verification program for renewable energy products, they ensure strict environmental and consumer protection standards.) Process chlorine and acid free, the paper has been manufactured in compliance with the standards set for alkaline papers by the American National Standards Institute.
In short, it’s as green as we can get it, without picking it straight off the tree.
The New MOO Green Business Cards are slightly more expensive than our previous stock, but for the rise in quality and credentials, we really think it’s worth it.
50 cards – £14.99/$24.99/€17.99
200 cards – £47.99/$79.99/€57.49
PS – Just so you know, the padded bags we use to send out individual orders are 100% recyclable too!
Would it be possible to get a sample? It would also be great if you had free sample packs with postcards, stickers, etc. so that we can see the quality before ordering. Thanks.
I just got the email about 100%recycled and FSC certified cards- I’m so so happy. I loved Moo before, and I adore it now. Thanks for responding to your customers’ and planet’s needs so well!
i love them!!!
please print more than just business cards on the eco paper!!
Would it be possible to get a 10 sample back made from a previous order with the Photo enhancement added to the card? I’d love to see the difference as I followed the instructions the CS rep told me and I’d still like my cards to be a bit more contrasty. Is there a way we could try that?
This is FANTASTIC! Thankyou so much moo
I have been searching for recycled paper cards… you are AWESOME!
Will be making my order soon
I would like to share an idea: kind of Postcard in the format of a Bookmark. So you can write a message on it and the receiver can use it as a bookmark and you are always with them…. Boookmark is about 2 x business card in length.
I was happy with the old eco paper. Nothing wrong with that, so I’m actually rather disappointed by this new recycled paper as it’s more expensive.
It would have been more reasonable to discontinue a product and replace it without notice if the price remains unchanged.
same as above, would be great to have a sample of the new eco paper. I was a bit disappointed by the quality of the previous one (had ordered a 10 pack sample) and ended up ordering a 200-pack of the matte finished ones… cheers! (and big congratz for greening your biz!!!)
You launched your green business cards 9 months ago? I bought some in December 2008, so either I went time-travelling or you’re having the same difficulty I am in remembering that it’s nearly April 2010 now!
That’s awesome! My first order was with the Moo Classic cardstock, but I’m definitely going to try out this new Eco stock next time I buy business cards. Thanks for caring about the environment; I wish more businesses were doing this.
i’d like to see the minicards be eco friendly, also but don’t mess ‘em up i love the quality of the paper as it is! but you go green team
yes, please offer more products in the green paper!
Je serais très heureuse de recevoir votre Pub en Français, car j’aime beaucoup votre Entreprise .
This is good news but I confess to being a little disapointed as when I first read the mail I thought it said that Moo was replacing ALL of its stock with green, environmental friendly card. But no. Just updating the current green stock
Please, please, please provide eco options on all of your products, please! Thanks. With hope in the power of Moo to do the right thing x
As I do photography, I would like a glossy business card. I don’t care what paper it is printed on.
It’s fantastic! My clients always ask me about printing in this paper. Would it be possible to get a sample wiht the differents products can I printed on this paper to see the quality before ordering? Thanks.
It’s great to see you’re taking this issue seriously. I’d love to see all your products printed on eco-friendly paper.
I don’t usually get excited about business cards, having been involved in producing print for over 20 years, but my new Moo cards in their little box are just superb. Yes, I’m a sucker for Moos’ quirky packaging, but the cards themselves are ideal for my funeral-related business – understated yet smart with their matt finish. Lovely job!
I’ve just received my first set of eco business cards from Moo, using some of the designer’s designs. They are beautiful, simple and I love the box they come in. It is also great to be able to order a small amount as I seem to have stacks of old cards lying around that I don’t know what to do with.
Ditto to some of the above – would love to see green minicards and postcards – would def. order some!
We know that lots of you are great ambassadors for MOO and so we've been thinking of a way to say thank you. Which is why you can now actually earn money off your next order when you refer friends to MOO.Find out more
