Paper Culture Makes Your Holidays Mod and Green

I'm not a holiday organizational whirlwind by any stretch of the imagination. My friends and family are more likely to get a festive belated email or text message from me than timely holiday cards. It's especially embarrassing because I am also a total design snob. I love typography and a well-composed holiday photo on a family greeting. I just need to get started early if I'm actually going to send anything out.

Paper Culture makes it easy to create a gorgeous holiday card or holiday party invitations with a minimal amount of effort. With a few simple clicks, anyone can create a customized, modern design. Even better, they're an eco-friendly company and use only 100% post-consumer recycled paper for their cards and envelopes. Far from being flimsy, though, the recycled paper is 130 lb heavy stock, with signature die-cut rounded corners– much nicer stuff than most holiday greetings are printed on.  They are shipped in a signature logo box, also made of recycled paper, which keeps your cards safe and secure until you get around to mailing them. Here's how mine came out:

I love how minimal they are. They get the point across without too much ho ho ho or glitter.

If you're a particularly bad procrastinator, Paper Culture will stuff, address, stamp and mail your cards for you for FREE. (The only charge for this service is the actual cost of the stamps!) You can also choose to print a unique, personalized message on the back of each card to make it more personal.

The Paper Culture mantra is “be modern. be eco.” I think they're onto something.

What kinds of holiday cards do you like to send out?

  1. I like the styling and shape a lot, but I have to admit that I have fallen out of the habit of sending cards. I guess I've moved so much that I got tired of keeping up with it all!
