Between summer parties, wedding showers, and the possibility of actually making it to a conference this year, I’ve had more “paper needs” than ever before, so I was excited to try out Paper Culture, an eco-friendly, hip and modern paper goods store. They offer everything from Christmas cards to save the date cards, and just about anything you can think of in between. The best part: what they don’t offer, you can pretty much wing with the products they do offer.
Customizing Your Paper Culture Experience
For me, I wanted something with my site info on it. Not really business cards (I need to work on those too soon!), but something more substantial that I could hand out to friends, family, and non-business contacts with just the basic info. Since I couldn’t find a category on Paper Culture that specifically filled that need, I made one up myself. I just went to the Events heading, dug through the Moving Announcements for a picture that would work well with my site’s info, and changed all the wording on the announcement to fit what I wanted.
It took less than five minutes to put together, and it came out really cute. The finished product obviously doesn’t say ” Paper Culture” across it, I just couldn’t take a good enough picture of the card itself so I used the proof. I also took out my address, because while I’d love to have all my readers over for coffee, I’d at least like a head’s up so I can actually get out of my jammies!
The proof was emailed to me within a few minutes after placing my order, and after approving it, I received my cards less than a week later. In fact, I think they arrived like three days later! It was really fast. The card stock is great quality, and they look a million times better in person. Considering how cute they looked online, that’s saying a lot.
About Paper Culture
Paper Culture has set out to deliver bold modern design through eco friendly products. Over 130,000 people have become fans of Paper Culture on Facebook, and Paper Culture’s products have been featured in People, Real Simple, Daily Candy, the Wall Street Journal and at the Tony Awards. Paper Culture uses exclusively 100% post consumer recycled paper for card and envelope. In addition, Paper Culture plants a tree with every order and has planted over 200,000 trees to date. When you place your order, you’re taken to a screen where you can dedicate the tree, which I thought was a really cute touch.
If you want to save yourself a little extra time, 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 even add a personalized message to the back of each card! Overall, I was really impressed with Paper Culture’s level of service and quality, and would recommend them for all your paper goods needs.
