Paper & Print FSC-Certified

We’ve been printing on paper with recycled content since 1996. Our primary paper source is processed chlorine-free, which means the mill uses no toxic chlorine in the paper making process. Post-consumer recycled paper is typically bleached to remove the ink, which releases toxic gases into the atmosphere. Most Avanti cards have 30-35% recycled content, with 10% post-consumer content.

Our printer is FSC-certified. The intention of the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is to change manufacturing processes in order to eliminate habitat destruction, water pollution, displacement of indigenous peoples and violence against people and wildlife that often accompanies logging.

Our paper mill is FSC-certified and carbon-neutral, producing all of their own power from 100% biomass fuel. Biomass is a waste wood removed from landfills, which is then converted into clean carbon-neutral energy.
