When you’re running an indie business advertising is key to getting the word out. Having stacks of business and postcards on hand is invaluable when you’re trying to wrangle in new customers and business contacts. But if you’re running a business with the goal of being environmentally responsible, then all of that paper and printing can seem wasteful. Well, fear no more because there are plenty of earth conscious printers working to help you promote your projects in a responsible way.
Greener Printer is a great source for all of your typical promotional needs: business cards, postcards, brochures, newsletters, and much more. They make use of recycled paper, vegetable and soy inks, and 100% wind power to produce their entire line of paper goods. They’re a Certified Green business, can ship your goods Carbon Free, and even offer a nifty “Eco Audit” that calculates the environmental impact of each individual order you place.
Pinball Publishing is a great resource if you’re looking to produce more diverse items like booklets, album covers, calendars, concert posters, and CD sleeves. Based in Portland, Oregon, Pinball is a “Mom & Pop” committed to running their business with the environment in mind. They also make use of recycled paper, vegetable and soy inks, and renewable power sources to create their goods.

Thanks for the tip! I have been wanting to get recycled paper cards and a source for printing on recycled paper for a green zine project I am working on!
Timothy, glad I could help. Best of luck with your zine project!
I’m still looking for more options when it comes to selection of blank greeting cards at these printers. Also colors. sigh.

Leigh, I’m also still on the search for more colorful options when it comes to recycled papers. I’ll be sure to post when I find them 🙂
