What is PEFC certified paper?

Our new cardstock paper is certified by PEFC – the largest forest certification organization in the world. This means that from now on any 14 pt cardstock product you order will be printed on paper made from 50% recycled post-consumer products and PEFC certified.

In addition, our Book Weight paper is “proudly made in the USA” and is PEFC and SFI® labeled. The SFI® or Sustainable Forestry Initiative® label means we are buying book weight paper products from well-managed forests which is backed by a rigorous, third-party certification audit.
