Offset are the only Charity greeting card publisher totally committed to eliminating all plastics from our range. We only supply products which are recyclable, bio-degradeable and sourced from sustainable sources.
• Plastic Free Christmas Card Packs, Gift Wrap, Money Wallets, Reindeer Food.
• We do not apply additional finishes to our cards due to the environmental impact.
• Foiling uses vast quantities of polyester in the finishing process, which is not recyclable, is non-biodegradeable and ends up incinerated or in land fill.
• Plastic Glitters enter the eco-system with detrimental effects on the environment andwildlife. Even bio-degradeable glitters are attached with oil based adhesives.
• Our Christmas cards are only supplied in cardboard boxes. There are various plastic bag materials, but all have serious environmental issues. This includes compostable bags, which due to lack of facilities and awareness do not end up being composted.
• In this country 96% of post consumer plastic film waste is not recycled and goes to land fill or incineration.
• All cards and boxes are printed on FSC accredited board from sustainable sources.• All inks used are vegetable based and we only use water based varnishes.
• By manufacturing in the UK with locally sourced board and envelopes, in our own factories in Basildon, we minimise our carbon footprint.
• Even our shipping boxes are sealed with paper adhesive tape.

The range they offered perfectly suited our needs and at a very reasonable price. The process for ordering, proofing and delivery was very smooth and we would thoroughly recommend Offset to any charity.”
