GalleryCollection.com Supports FSC Greeting Cards and Envelopes

RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - GalleryCollection.com, the leading business birthday cards and corporate holiday cards publisher, today announced its support of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper stock which is now used to produce its greeting cards and envelopes.

As of this month, the greeting cards company offers 83 designs printed on FSC certified stock, and many more designs will be added as old stock is sold off and new cards are produced. Additionally, all of GalleryCollection.com's traditional envelopes are made with FSC stock.

The FSC is a non-profit organization that promotes responsible forest management through the development of standards for sustainable forestry. It is the first worldwide certification system to provide consumers with the choice to purchase wood and paper goods from certified responsible sources.

"Everyone has the option to choose sustainable products versus less responsible alternatives," commented H.L. DeVore, Chief Marketing Officer of GalleryCollection.com. "We are proud of our green efforts. They affect every aspect of our business, from the type of energy used to produce our paper to the type of forests our paper is harvested from. Being a greeting cards publisher, we feel it is our global and environmental duty to diminish our impact on the planet, and FSC paper is helping us to achieve that."

GalleryCollection.com's FSC certified greeting cards and envelopes are validated by the chain of custody (COC) certification, which maintains that the raw materials used to produce the company's paper stock is harvested and replenished in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
