Made with people and planet in mind

Every little helps and we can all do our bit to help look after people and the planet. Few can claim to be completely eco-friendly but the Studio aims to be responsible to avoid excess and waste where possible. Learning along the way!

 

Semi-custom event stationery

  • Paper used is FSC certified (sourced from sustainably managed forests).

  • Recycled paper or post-consumer waste paper are used as an alternative. Post-consumer waste is things that people have used and recycled instead of discarding to landfills. This could be any paper product: milk cartons, books, junk mail, magazines etc.

  • As standard the Studio uses recycled kraft envelopes produced by FSC accredited British envelope manufacturers.

  • Coloured envelopes come from traditional British paper mills and are consistent in colour depth quality across the entire envelope face.

  • Large format signage (A3 size and above) is made from cardboard which prints full colour and can be recycled.

 

 

Multi-use note cards

  • Paper used is FSC certified paper (sourced from sustainably managed forests), recycled paper or post-consumer waste paper.

  • As standard the Studio uses recycled kraft envelopes (as above).

  • All note cards are intentionally designed not to be tied to a specific occasion and can be kept and framed by you or your recipient.

Art prints

  • The Studio's art prints are printed on archival art papers using high quality ink that outlasts your average art print. Your art print is guaranteed to last up to 80 years and maintain the excellent printing results with defined reproduction of colour and detail.

  • The Studio's printing partner for art prints is 100% carbon neutral which means where they can, they minimise their energy usage and use suppliers of renewable energy. Where unavoidable, they offset all of their carbon emissions.

Studio setup

  • The Studio is making attempts to find online options and solutions for any primarily paper-based tasks wherever possible and use digital/cloud-based solutions to reduce the need for storage of paper files.

  • The Studio now has zero printed marketing materials. The note cards that are sent with deliveries are printed on eco paper with minimal ink and specifically designed for multi-use to allow that same card to be used for general correspondence, orders, thank you's and so on.

  • Meetings are done via video conference or telephone.

  • The Studio works with a group of trusted suppliers due to their sustainable and eco-friendly credentials. All partners use papers sourced from FSC certified mills and sustainable sources.

  • Walks and use of public transport to drop off deliveries. Printing is bulked together to limit the number of delivery runs and items larger than A3 are drop shipped directly to you.

Packaging

  • Goods sent out directly from the Studio use pre-used boxes or boxes made from recycled materials. No pretty, luxurious packaging just a brown or white box with a sticker on so you know its from the Studio. Products are usually wrapped in plain tissue paper for protection and sometimes padded with shredded paper (or reused bubble wrap from deliveries!).

  • In general, items are sent out in paper bags, envelopes or cardboard boxes and the Studio uses compostable cello bags for protecting art prints.

  • Bubble wrap from deliveries are re-used so if you get a parcel with bubble wrap that's why. Items drop shipped directly from supply partners may also arrive bubble wrapped! ​
