What makes noissue Cards eco-friendly?
noissue Cards are printed with soy-based inks, water-based inks, or non-toxic HP Indigo ElectroInk on materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC): 100% recycled paper (which means no virgin pulp was used to produce them), recycled FSC mix, and recycled post consumer cards. Unlike most on the market, we forego silicone/plastic coatings for our cards to keep them 100% compostable and recyclable when you're ready to dis-card them!

What finish do noissue Cards have?
If you're ordering from the UK or EU, your cards will have a more matte finish. Otherwise, the finish of your noissue Cards will have a soft shine, with 1 side having a matte coating. To keep our cards 100% compostable and recyclable, we don't use any plastic or silicone coating, but instead, we use a light soy varnish to protect any printed colors.
How are noissue Cards printed?
We use digital and offset printing in CMYK colors for noissue Cards, which means we can print as many colors as you'd like for your card design. Double-sided printing is also available, so you can really let your creativity shine!
