Vistaprint Answers Customers' Calls for Recycled Paper Options

"Over the past year, one of the most common questions asked by our customers has been 'when are you going to offer recycled paper?' Our product team has since looked for a solution that would address this need while keeping it within our customers' budgets," said President, Vistaprint North America, Wendy Cebula. "Needless to say they succeeded with today's launch, so now on top of getting low-cost, high-quality marketing materials for their businesses; this new option gives our customers the added element of social consciousness."

Prior to incorporating recycled paper into the company's portfolio, the product marketing team conducted extensive research to assure the highest quality option for customers. The stock chosen by Vistaprint exceeds current industry norms with a 100 lb. paper stock made from 100 percent post-consumer waste. This new paper option offers limited contamination and is nearly as smooth and white as standard stock. Adding recycled paper to business cards, postcards and oversized postcards is easy, and customers can select the option after designing their products from the main product pages or when re-ordering their existing marketing materials. Customers can also place orders and learn more about Vistaprint's efforts to reduce the company's impact on the environment at
