Kelsey’s business card is an exceptionally important point of contact and we wanted to achieve a substantial thickness without resorting to cotton-based papers. We stumbled upon Neenah Environment – Folding Board (an easter egg find, as it is not listed in their commercial paper swatchbooks), a 172#, 100% postconsumer cover stock that proved to be the perfect media for our purposes.
The paper performed extremely well in our initial test run. However, since this cardstock is intended for large-run packaging projects, the minimum order was a pallet (we needed about 20 sheets). Determined, we decided to purchase it despite this roadblock and have since sold some of the remaining sheets to a local printer. Long story short, the drive for sustainability can lead you to become an occasional paper merchant.
