Eco friendly ID & Membership cards

Eco friendly recycled paperboard ID and membership cards custom printed

As we all try to reduce our use of plastics, we provide business customers with an alternative to printed plastic ID cards, with modern layered recycled eco-card a superb short-term alternative for single and occasional use products.

Plastic is a great choice for long term and heavy use items like credit cards and loyalty cards, however it's rarely necessary for occasional or single use items, such as PVC cards for indoor music events, short term loyalty cards, or single use security passes.

Modern layered paperboards are a very thick and tough card which prints beautifully and has substantially less impact on the environment, both in its manufacture, and what happens to it after use. The layered card material is similar to the classic beer mat but more rigid, so it can stand up to a splash of drink or rain but is best suited to indoor or summer events.

Made in exactly the same way as paper or card, our eco business cards are made from recycled stocks and can be recycled again, as well as being biodegradable and composting back into the eco system when thrown away.

Some of the key features of eco-card ID cards and event passes include:

  • Sustainable, paper-based product
  • Made from recycled paper and card
  • Recyclable, biodegradable and compostable
  • Perfect for occasional or single use products
  • 2mm thick tough, layered card materials
  • Highest quality full colour two sided printing
  • Available with laminate coating for added water resistance

Our eco-cards are often used to create promotional or business cards, passes for indoor and summer events, single use visitor IDs and more; we are very happy to advise customers on all of our membership and event card printing services and those which work best with a recycled eco-card base material.

Optional laminated gloss finishes for increased splash resistance

Eco-cards can also be produced with a laminate coating, improving their water resistance and general resilience.

The laminate is biodegradable and often described as eco-friendly, though in truth it degrades into micro plastics which are not compostable, and prevent the card being recycled.

Using laminated card rather than plastic does significantly reduce the amount of plastic being used, but we recommend avoiding the laminate whenever possible and making eco-card your short-term and single-use solution; our bamboo ID cards are a great higher use eco-alternative which is much more resistant to water.

The most environmentally friendly choice isn't always obvious

Green Cards

Working out the best product for your carbon footprint can be complicated; eco business cards are one of the best options, but have their limitations if regular use or water resistance is important; how a card is used is crucial.

Plastic remains the best material for products like loyalty or credit cards which are used regularly, and can have a lower carbon footprint than an eco-friendly alternative like bamboo if it has to be replaced all the time due to wear and tear.

We've spent a lot of time looking over the various benefits and drawbacks, balanced carefully against levels of use so that we can help you calculate exactly which material will give you the most environmentally friendly option.
