Eco-friendly Business Cards and Stickers

Eco-friendly Business Cards and Stickers All

MorningPrint has several environmentally friendly options to choose from in both our paper and plastic selections. Ranging in color, texture and material, they each have their own characteristics.

1. Vintage Kraft

Eco-friendly Business Cards and Stickers Vintage Kraft

Vintage Kraft

Vintage Kraft is made of recycled paper pulp creating eco-friendly paper for business cards. Since it is made of recycled pulp, at times it is possible to feel a hairy texture on this paper. It also has a rich brown color, similar to the color of cardboard. Due to its dark coloring, black prints the best of all the other color choices.

Vintage Kraft Stickers

We have also turned Vintage Kraft into a sticker, becoming one of the two eco-friendly sticker options from MorningPrint. It is also possible to choose this paper for both our post card sizes, 4×6 and 5×7.
An excellent finishing option choice for this business card is Foiling.

2. Aquarelle/Heavy Aquarelle

Eco-friendly Business Cards and Stickers Aquarelle

Aquarelle with Raised Ink

A matte, creamy white textured paper Aquarelle and it’s thicker partner Heavy Aquarelle are another option for eco-friendly business cards. Both have received a certificate with a five star rating from the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) saying these papers meet their standards for forest management. As a watercolor paper, both absorb color well and reflect watercolor designs the best.
Aquarelle is available in our postcard sizes 4×6 and 5×7.
Our favorite finishing option to pair with this paper is Raised Ink.

3. Yupo

Eco-friendly Business Cards and Stickers Yupo

Yupo

Yupo is a creamy white synthetic paper, which makes it an eco-friendly business card. Ironically, it does not have natural paper feel as it is cool to the touch and quite smooth.
At 9pt it is also our thinnest paper selection for environmentally friendly business cards. However, it is also our most durable because it is both waterproof and tear proof.
This paper was also made into a sticker, called Durable Sticker, for our strongest sticker and second eco-friendly sticker option.

4. Plastics

Eco-friendly Business Cards and Stickers Clear Plastic

Clear+White Plastic

Contrary to popular belief, the majority of our plastic business cards are made of PET plastic. PET plastic is recognized as a safe, non-toxic,  lightweight and flexible material that is 100% recyclable. This material is very thin, around the thinness of a water bottle.
We have a variety of options to choose from such as Clear, White, Silver and Hologram plastic business cards.

  4. Business Contact Email: tina@sodaback.comDesign of the Month March 2018
  5. Please give us a brief history of your business and some of the services you provide.
    We specialize in graphic design and marketing for hospitality and beverage companies. These types of businesses are our primary focus as we have a background in event planning and bartending. We provide logo (brand identity), menu, business cards, event flyer design and more! This particularly wedding-invitation set was done for a bar consultant colleague and his fiance.Design of the Month March 2018 Save the Date Back
  6. What was the goal of your design?
    The wedding invitations we did for Sarah and Aaron were meant to capture the spirit of their celebration in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The textures and colors pull directly from the buildings and flowers of the city. The map on the backside is an abstract representation of the location and energy of the wedding festivities.
  7. Why did you choose the Standard Coated papers?
    They are a true matte finish with durability and great ink absorption. Colors are always very vivid and rich!Design of the Month March 2018 Map Back
  8. Our favorite part of your design is the map on the back of the Parade Card. How did you create that effect for the back of the card?
    The map was created from a rough sketch of a city map that was altered in proportions to include all the wedding festivities. The affects and textures were created using watercolor and paint brushes in Adobe Illustrator. The couple asked for special elements such as the bride and groom, plants and flowers and their two pups. These tiny details made the map feel truly customized and special.Design of the Month March 2018 Save the Date
  9. We have never seen a black wedding never seen a black wedding invitation set, and yet it works beautifully. How did you decide on the color pattern, including Matte Gold Foil of the invitation and parade card?
    The couple wanted a richness and colorful celebratory mood to their wedding invitation set. Matte Gold Foil was an absolute must to give the invitation a little bit of polish. The colors come naturally from the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel cathedral and surrounding architecture of the city of San Miguel de Allende. The black seemed like a no-brainer that gave this invitation a rich contrast and helped make it feel more personal, more like them and less like other wedding invitations you see.Design of the Month March 2018 Invitation
  10. What made you choose MorningPrint?
    I’ve used Morning Print for the last 5-6 years. Their paper quality is the main reason that I love them, plus the ability for metallic foils and spot UV. They are absolutely my go to for an affordable and beautiful business card or flyer.
  11. How was your experience with MorningPrint? Would you recommend us to others?
    My experience was great. I did have some difficulty uploading larger files to their website (the wedding map file) but was able to dropbox them to their team, and they added the files to my order.
    Yes, I would definitely recommend MorningPrint.

 

Postcards: Marketing and Invitations

MorningPrint’s postcards fulfill many purposes, depending on the final design. Postcards are used for both business necessities and personal reasons. These postcards come in a range of paper options, including matte, metallic, glossy, texture, thick and thin papers. Depending on the chosen paper, different finishing options are available, such as: embossing, raised ink, foiling, and spot uv. When asked, we can do a folding service for those who want to created a folded postcard. Another special option we can address is that a postcard can be made into a bigger size, however the client will need to be flexible on the type of paper that is used and on the sizing.

Our postcards come in two sizes, 4×6 and 5×7 cards for the following papers:
Standard Coated 14pt/matte
Standard Coated 14pt/glossy

Small Business/Company Uses:
The most primary use for our postcards in regards to businesses, is for marketing material. Marketing material can range from anything such as announcements to professional holiday cards. For those businesses which deliver, these postcards are an excellent choice as a Thank You card inside the package. Those in the fashion industry use these postcards to have images of their clothing or styles. Artists use the postcards as an actual postcard with images of their artwork on it. Those in the food industry use images of food on their postcards. These cards are also a good option for corporations who use postcards for sending professional holiday cards and reminders to their clients. Online companies use these postcards to provide extra information for a purchased product.

Postcard Thank You

Personal Uses:
These postcards are also appropriate for personal uses. Some examples include invitations (ranging from wedding invitations to party invitations), thank you cards and holiday cards. In our experience, 4×6 tend to be more popular for RSVP cards and some menu cards. 5×7 postcards tend to be used for either invitations or menu cards or holiday cards.

MorningPrint Products and Services

As a truly customizable printing company, MorningPrint offers a wide range of services and products. We understand it can be difficult to know which product works best for your design. In this article we offer a quick generalized overview of our various products to help guide you to whichever product works best for your design.

Paper Business Cards
Our paper business cards have the most choices of all the papers. Ranging in more than just thickness, we offer textured paper, metallic paper, matte paper and even black paper. We encourage everyone to read about our products before creating your design to choose the best paper for your design. For additional special effect we can add foiling, embossing, raised ink (also known as thermographic printing). Please check
the specific paper to know which finishing options are available.

Embossing
Texture Papers range in thickness and amount and type of texture. Tant is the thinnest and most textured paper, while Heavy Aquarelle is the thickest paper with a watercolor texture. Read What You Need to Know: Texture Paper to learn more about Tant, Heavy Aquarelle and every textured paper in between.
Metallic Paper such as Heavy Star Dream and Keaykolour Metallic range not just in thickness and the type of shine each paper features. Keaykolour Metallic has two different colors to take into account, the off white paper and then the brilliant frosty
shine. To learn about each metallic paper, read What You Need to Know: Metallic Papers.
Matte Papers include the Nouveau and Heavy Nouveau: The Blank Slate and Sumo Nouveau: The Thickest Paper. The Nouveau family is all made with a creamy and luxorious white true matte paper. These papers are thought of as elegant and are universally liked.

October DOM
Black Paper is the richest black a design can achieve because it is naturally black. This type of paper only does foiling, no ink printing. To learn more about this specific type of black paper, read Black Paper: The Deepest Black.
Plastic Business Cards
Our plastic business cards are all made of PET plastic, which is an environmentally friendly material. As such, they are quite thin, and flexible. This thinness does not mean these plastics are flimsy. All our plastic business cards are waterproof and durable.

Clear Plastic is like looking through a glass, and every part of your design that has white ink will be clear. We recommend avoiding soft colors and thin fonts as this could create an issue with legibility. We do offer a clear plastic which can print white ink, it is called Clear+White Plastic. To learn more about these two plastics, read Clear Plastic Business Cards.
Opaque White Plastic has a thin layer of white ink to the entire card which is ideal for those with many small, white details. Meanwhile the Frosty Plastic is slightly thicker than the other plastic cards, and can only do foiling, no ink printing.

Silver Pearl
Silver Plastic Family includes several types of metallic plastic cards. The solid silver plastic card is as reflective as a mirror while other silver plastic cards have sparkling glitter throughout the cards. Read our What You Need to Know: Silver Plastics to learn more. The Gold Plastic Family involves solid gold as well as gold plastic cards with sparkling glitter, both solid and transparent. Read What You Need to Know: the Gold Plastic Family for more details.

Die Cuts

Die Cut Tag
Die Cuts are the most customizable form of printing. We offer templates for over 50 shapes. Some of our standard shapes include circles, ovals, houses, and dog bones. However, if the client wishes to create their own custom shape, we can do this as well. These shapes are automatically printed on the Standard Coated 14pt Matte, but you can choose any type of paper you like for our Die Cuts. Doing so, will alter the price, but it is possible. If a paper that is compatible with Raised Ink is chosen, we are able to add this finishing option to your order as well. Finishing options offered with the Standard Coated 14pt Matte include foiling, embossing and spot uv. If you wish to learn more about our Die Cuts, please read Die Cuts: The Most Customizable Cards.

Stickers

Stickers come in several types of options, such as Uncoated, Coated, Silver, and Durable. These types of stickers come with individual characteristics. For example, Coated Stickers had a bright shine and some slight durability against any type of wear and tear. Uncoated stickers are made with matte paper, meaning no shine. We also offer a Strong Adhesive Sticker which includes an extra strong glue. These same types of stickers can be used in our standard, as well as custom shapes. All stickers are able to offer foiling. MorningPrint also offers metal stickers, in both gold and silver. A highly customizable sticker, pricing must be done through our printing team.

Other finishing options such as foiling, embossing and raised ink are also possible depending on the chosen paper. Postcards can be used as invitations, holiday cards, and business supplies.

Wedding Stationery: Special Touches

Hello there,

It is Ava and I’m here to talk about how you can add special touches to your wedding stationery using the latest trends. Let’s get started.

Wedding Invitation Blue
1. Monograms are a big hit. You can use our Metal Stickers to create a personalized monogram to decorate all your wedding invitations. Metal Stickers come in two colors, gold and silver. Intricate, delicate designs really stand out on this material. With such a strong adhesion, they can be applied to just about anything such as menu cards, invitations, etc.

 

2. Custom shaped papers, called Die Cuts, are becoming a must have for people who want to showcase their individuality. They can be cut to any size or style and useful for your extra, but necessary information; such as accommodation, transportation etc. We published an article on Die Cuts last week. If you wish to read about die cuts in more detail, please follow this link- Die Cuts: The Most Customizable Cards.

3. Using plastic or leather for wedding stationery is another exciting wedding trend. We offer Opaque White Plastic Postcards, in both the 4×6 and 5×7 sizes. Our Opaque White Plastic is made of a PET material, meaning it is environmentally friendly. It is durable, being both waterproof and tear proof. Depending on your design, Opaque White Plastic can be modern, futuristic or fun.
Clear Plastic Invitation

4. Texture is another big trend for those who wish to use paper choices. Textured paper, such as Scotland can give the organic, woodland feel which is popular for Fall. Heavy Linen has a woven pattern and will always  look upscale or outdoorsy. according to the feel of your wedding. Aquarelle  has a watercolor paper texture, which gives it a natural romantic feel and will work well to set an outdoorsy ambiance.
Wedding Invitations Embossing
Now, if you like the idea of the texture trend, but prefer a smooth paper stock, like Heavy Nouveau, we have an out of the box idea for you.  Add Embossing or Raised Ink to put a twist on the texture trend. Your guests will be able to see and feel the imprint of both these options on your stationery, giving you slight texture.

5. Foiling, especially Gold Foiling, is a classic and this style is still going strong. However, to the metallic color trend, other foiling colors such as Silver, Matte Silver and Bronze are rising in popularity as well. For those who have a different color scheme, but would still like to include foiling, MorningPrint also offers Pink, Blue, Red, Green, and Hologram. These last colors also fall in the category of another wedding trend, bold colors.

Wedding Invitation Foiling

*Special Note: You can combine embossing and foiling to create a raised and metallic effect. Since both finishing options are pressed on, we can do both at the same time and guarantee a beautiful outcome*

Geometric Wedding Invitations

6. Geometric designs, both modern and art deco are all the rage this season. Most use foiling to create their designs, and it looks beautiful. However, if you prefer a more subtle way to incorporate the geometric trend into your papers, we suggest considering Spot UV. Spot UV is a flat, reflective, transparent material that can be seen but not felt. Those interested in this special feature will need to order Standard Coated 14 pt Matte.

Linen: The Most Professional Paper

Designing the right business card can be a long, detail oriented process. One would want to represent not just the business, but also the style of the company in that card.
It can be difficult for those with a more formal culture to make their card stand out without betraying their philosophy. By far, the best paper for such companies is Heavy Linen and Linen.

With it’s subtle woven texture, Heavy Linen and Linen would be just perfect for businesses with a more formal company culture. Combined with a simplistic design, the texture will make your card look interesting while keeping the focal point on your business information.

IMG_3157

This paper also boasts the brightest white out of all the other paper stocks, which is both fresh and professional. the clean look accentuates the professionalism and credibility of the person and company.

IMG_3091

Examples of simplistic designs on Heavy Linen

For those who would like a little extra impact, but keep the same level of simplicity, should really consider coloring their paper. Linen and Heavy Linen display bright colors vividly. A couple of tips to keep in mind when coloring your linen or heavy linen cards would be:
1. Due to it’s thickness, Heavy Linen will require more coloring than it’s counterpart, Linen.
2. Especially avoid busy designs if you color your paper, because the color will make the woven pattern of this paper more obvious.
3. Maintain a stark contrast between your words and the background color. If the shades of the colors are too similar or too light, it will be difficult to read your cards.

If you keep these tips in mind and maintain a simplistic design with the focus on your information, your cards will be elegant, professional and still stand out due to their credibility.

Linen and Heavy Linen is versatile enough to also be used in company cards and advertisements. As seen below, when styled properly this paper can be luxurious enough to represent Beverley Hills, yet fresh enough to represent all natural soaps while maintaining the formality of a business.

Linen and Heavy Linen are papers that should be embraced by the professional and more formal business community. It adds credibility and beauty to any card.

 

 

Wedding Invitations

Wedding season has arrived.
From May to the start of September, everyone you know seems to be either getting married, planning weddings, attending weddings, or announcing their own engagements. And MorningPrint is no different. We have our own beautiful bride to be, Ava, who is recently engaged and beginning the plans for her own wedding.

Hello!
My name is Ava and I am the office assistant at MorningPrint. This past March, I got engaged to a sweet man. Since then, I have started wedding planning, and it is more overwhelming than I ever thought possible. Locations, venues, caterers, wedding planners, is a lot to learn and take in.

Engagement Ring

My engagement ring!

The only aspect of wedding planning I am not completely overwhelmed with is the different wedding papers: invitations, save the dates, menu cards. etc. Working at MorningPrint taught me a great deal about paper, paper products and printing. I thought it would be nice to share my inside knowledge with my fellow brides using our MorningPrint products. Even if you do not use our service, the information will come in handy for all those wedding paper details. I hope it takes a little of the guess work out of wedding planning.

For some time now, MorningPrint’s wedding process is that brides would order one of our postcard sizes, upload their design to the postcard, which we would then print with our usual efficiency. Our postcards come in two sizes, 4×6 and 5×7. We offer the following stocks in postcards: Standard Coated (14pt/matte and 20pt/matte), Standard Coated Glossy (14pt/glossy), Aquarelle, Nouveau, Heavy Nouveau, Linen, Heavy Linen, Scotland, Heavy Silky Matte, Star Dream, Heavy Star Dream, Vintage Kraft, Opaque White Plastic.

Our current most popular stock choice is Nouveau and Heavy Nouveau. Nouveau and Heavy Nouveau are essentially the same, except Heavy Nouveau is thicker and heavier than Nouveau. However, both have the same quality and the same smooth feeling when you hold them in your hands. The one adjective that comes to my mind whenever I handle these two cards is luxury. Those couples planning on having a very formal or high end type of wedding should seriously consider using this paper family.

IMG_3027

Left: Nouveau with bronze foil / Right: Nouveau with glossy gold foil

Nouveau and Heavy Nouveau are good in a practical sense too. Both are such thick papers that pressed or stamped finishing touches (such as foiling and embossing) do not leave their imprint on the other side. 

Our 2nd most popular choice of paper and one of my personal favorites is Aquarelle. It is an European style paper with a similar texture to watercolor paper. This sort of texture not only means it absorbs color well, but it also has a versatility in feeling. You want your invitations and other papers to reflect the atmosphere of the wedding day. Aquarelle‘s texture will be able to give you a wide range of feelings to choose from. This paper can perfectly reflect a romantic, vintage, whimsical, fairy tale, fun or elegant day. Depending on your design, it can reflect one or more of those I listed. Personally, I consider it to be one of the most romantic papers you can pick and for that reason, I will most likely be choosing this paper for my own wedding.

Aquarelle.jpg

Aquarelle postcard 5×7

In terms of practicality, Aquarelle also has the ability to hold pattern well, while being thick enough for your pattern not to pass through to the other side. Do you recall the Aquarelle invitation pictured above? It has a detailed pattern on the reverse side but it is only possible to see through when holding it up to the sun on a very bright day. That is a substantial paper.
Last, but not least, Aquarelle is an acid-free and eco-friendly paper, so you would not be harming the environment and your work would be preserved longer!

Background pattern Aquarelle.jpg

Our third most popular choice is a tie between our family of Standard Coated papers and our family of Silky Matte papers. Both families of paper are ideal when the couple wants to use their engagement photos as their save the dates, engagement announcements, or in their Thank You cards. Examples of both are pictured below.

Black and White Trio.jpg

From farthest back to front: Standard Coated, Heavy Nouveau, Heavy Silky Matte

Standard Coated would be my recommendation for those who are having large events and would like more affordable pricing. You will still get quality paper, just at the best deal possible, and who doesn’t like that? That is the one huge advantage Standard Coated has over our other papers.

Interview:

Q : Jessica, briefly tell us about your business and its history:

A : I have been running a photography business for a few years and recently moved to another state and so decided to rebrand my business to better suit the market

Q : How did you select your designer for this project?

A: Well he is my husband! LOL And he also had just started his own design business so I knew I would get a great design and also a good deal.

Q : Where did the fox theme come from?

A: Our family shield features a fox so the theme runs through into our businesses.

Q : What direction did you give your designer? How did you like the final outcome of the project?

A: I explained that I wanted something simple and yet elegant, something not over the top but that would grab your attention.

Q : Bjorn, please tell us a little about yourself as a designer, and the services you offer:

A: I have been working in partnership with a very talented young designer by the name of Sebastian Pizarro for a while whom is now the other member of Fox Design Corp. We offer services to various niche markets like wedding stationary, greeting cards, and personalized stationary for individuals, along with logo and website design or a whole identity for a company as we have done for Jessica.

Q : Your design inspires us, what inspires you?

A: I think that the things that I admire most are always the simplest and yet convey a strong message with very little, whether it is words or just a few lines. This is mostly because when you start with an idea it is very cluttered and it is taking the time to remove the clutter that leaves you with something poignant and interesting.

Q : This order used a variety of options for this project, Spot UVFoilingRaised inkRounded Corners. How did you decide on the options?

A: MorningPrint offers many different printing options that I have been wanting to try for quite some time, so when the client said that she was happy to try anything we recommended it was hard not to try all of them LOL. I think that foiling gives things a sense of class along with rounded corners and the cards won’t bend in the corners and maintain a more pristine look. The raised ink and spot UV also add a texture that give the cards a real premium and tactile feel that also shows off the pattern we designed in a subtle way.

Q : When working with your clients, how do you get to the bottom of the style / design / products you will offer them?

A: I think as a designer it is important to understand the clients business, and therefore how the design will help the business stand out and also how they will use their stationary, in order to offer them the best solution. For example if my client is a plumber we might try a simpler design to make them look more upmarket instead of a tacky graphic and slogan and I would steer them more to plastic cards due to their water resistance and ease of cleaning in case they get them dirty. I would not try and steer them to something that may be more premium but that would not be particularly functional or useful for the business.

Q : Any tips for our clients to consider when they are creating their business cards?

A: Given the amount of cards people receive all the time it is worthwhile putting some effort in making something memorable in both design and feel so that you have more chances of potential clients keeping your cards and not throwing them away.

MAKE-A-WISH

Hey guys! Happy March to you all, the year seems to be chugging by quickly it seems like 2012 just started but here we are mid March. So much has been going on here, we have introduced our black paper stock, change the website layout, updated our file uploading system etc. All in all 2012 has been off to a great productive start.  It is our goal to make MorningPrint as user friendly as possible while offering you the best products.

As a small growing company we understand that life is not just about business but that there is a bigger picture out there. One of our new year’s resolutions this year was to reach out and give back.  The more we grow the more we want to give. As members of the Irvine Chamber of Commerce we were able to get in touch with a couple Make-A-Wish representatives. Since then we have been able to partner with them by offering our services to help promote their organization.

If you are a bride to be or maybe you know a bride to be here are a few ways you can help:

  • In Lieu of Gifts: Consider asking your guests to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Orange County and the Inland Empire in lieu of purchasing wedding gifts.
  • Wedding Favors: Your guest won’t quickly forget your generosity when they see that you have made a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in their honor.
  • Charity Gift Registry: By creating a gift registry with the I Do Foundation, up to 10% of your guests’ gift purchases from partnering stores will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
  • Make-A-Wish Money Dance: Have your DJ announce that all the money raised during your money dance will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
  • Sell your Dress: Thinking of selling your dress after the big day? Why not donate the proceeds to the Foundation? It’s a great way to give your dress even more meaning.
  • Gift Cards and Toys: Instead of wedding gifts, ask your guests to bring gift cards or unwrapped toys to your bridal shower or wedding.

Together we can make a difference!
