Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States, is expanding its popular Envi Card Stock portfolio with the introduction of Envi PC 100 Card 28 pt., crafted from 100% post-consumer waste fibers.
In the last 10 years, more than 10 billion gift, membership, and loyalty cards have been produced on Envi Card by the world’s leading retailers, restaurants, hotels, and brands . This is testament to the viability of converting PVC card programs to engineered paper. The “Un-Plastic® alternative,” a drop-in replacement for legacy plastic and PVC substrates, will be particularly attractive to issuers looking to enhance their sustainability portfolios. Envi Card has been qualified by printers and card manufacturers around the world.
Like all Envi Card Stock materials, Envi PC 100 Card is manufactured in the U.S. and is FSC® certified, manufactured carbon neutral (VERs), and made with 100 percent renewable Green-e certified wind powered electricity (RECs) under a third-party certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.
“We’ve improved the world’s most sustainable card material with our new Envi PC 100 Card,” says Julie Brannen, Director, Sustainability Solutions, Monadnock. “This is an easy and cost-effective solution for brands looking to improve their environmental profile with a renewable, recycled and recyclable option.”
Retail and hospitality brand owners, gift card managers and purchasers, gift card printers, agencies, and designers specify Envi Card products due to their performance and premium look and feel. Envi PC 100 prints crisply using standard offset printing techniques; accepts magnetic stripes, scratch panels, bar codes, and signature panels, and can be embossed, foil stamped, and laminated.
“Brands are carefully navigating the post-COVID era, which so dramatically altered consumer behavior,” notes Brannen. “Gift, membership, and loyalty cards will play an increasingly important role in building and maintaining brand equity in both the online and in-store retail environments.”
