Producing Closer & On Demand
In contrast Cardly only prints a card when ordered. We also produce our cards from the location closest to the recipient, meaning faster delivery and less fuel used for transport. Add to this the fact we never need to retrieve unsold cards and transport them a second time to be recycled and you have a product that's much better for the world.
Furthermore, Cardly exclusively uses paper stocks that have excellent environmental credentials. Every stock we use is either FSC certified or made from fully recycled paper where possible.
FSC stands for 'Forest Stewardship Council', which is an international, non-for-profit organisation that promotes responsible forestry and certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards. Stock that is certified as FSC means that the timber source won’t negatively impact the world’s forests. FSC is endorsed by the major environmental charities including WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and the Woodland Trust.
Unlike the cards you might find in a retail outlet, Cardly does not use glitter, foil or plastic coatings on our cards, meaning when your recipient is done with them they can easily be recycled. We also don’t put our cards in a plastic sleeve as you might find them in a store, resulting in less plastic waste making its ways into our oceans to harm marine life or taking space up in landfill.
