Cards are something that we all collect and give for almost every occasion. Whether it’s for a birthday, a wedding, or a baby on the way, we all take time to look for that oh so special card for that special someone. I absolutely recommend Smock’s Letterpress cards! Smock, which is based in upstate New York, is a true environmental stationery line – in addition to printing on sustainable bamboo and 100% post-consumer recycled papers, Smock is wind powered and practices progressive green printing methods.
Smock partnered with non-profit Earthworks in creating the Fracking card, to raise awareness on the dangers of hydraulic fracturing (which is often referred to as fracking), an earth-damaging process used for oil drilling. The cards come with an anti-fracking temporary tattoo and Smock has created a Tumblr for customers to upload photos of themselves with their tattoos along with their stories and concerns.
The original card in the “Change the World” series, Sunflower, focuses on the plight of honeybees and colony collapse disorder. Sunflower is one of Smock’s best sellers for 2012: the card includes bee-friendly organic sunflower seeds for customers to plant while alsobenefiting the Pesticide Action Network of North America.
With beautiful graphic images and well thought out notes, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect card for any occasion!
