Paper Culture is an online stationery company offering modern eco products such as baby announcements, holiday cards, baby shower invitations and many other types of eco-friendly, personalized stationery. We believe that you don’t have to give up design in order to be good to the planet. In fact, we’ve built our entire business around offering modern stationery designs that are eco-friendly and that include some serious conveniences to make your life a bit easier.


All of our designs are printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper and are 100% exclusive, which means your stationery isn’t just like the Jones’ – it’s better. We focus our designs on clean lines, a modern point of view and we spotlight bold colors and fresh typography. Once we know your stationery looks great we help simplify your life by taking on the addressing, stuffing, stamping and mailing of your cards. Paper Culture can even individualize each of your cards with different message on each one, making thank you cards a snap.


Paper Culture has been featured in Real Simple, People, Martha Stewart and at the Tony Awards. Paper Culture’s designs are printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper and Paper Culture plants a tree in a US national forest with every order. And, through working with Carbonfund, Paper Culture is a Carbonfree Partner. For more information, please visit us at


Environmental Commitment


A strong environmental focus is one of the three foundations that Paper Culture has built its business upon. We think that protecting Mother Earth is not only good for the world, but it’s good business, too. We believe this so much that we went beyond the competitive “eco-friendly product lines” and created an eco-friendly company.


Paper Culture doesn’t just market sustainability, we live it. Every one of our cards is environmentally responsible. We minimize the resources we use and the impact they have by using recycled paper for our envelopes, recycled paper for our packaging and even environmentally friendly products in our corporate offices from the paper in our printers, to the CFLs we use to light our office, to the non-toxic cleaning products in our kitchen. And finally, for the carbon footprint we can’t eliminate, we work with Carbonfund as a Carbonfree Partner.


“In choosing Carbonfund, Paper Culture wanted a partner that had a strong, auditable record of driving additional greenhouse gas reducing projects. When we looked at their marquee list of partners that includes names like Staples, Discovery Channel and Virgin, when combined with the audit trail provided by Environmental Resources Trust to verify the various Carbonfund projects, our decision was made.” – Christopher Wu, Paper Culture
