Can there be too much green?
Depending on the true intent of this question, your answer may vary. Green may refer to “eco-friendly”, but the context of this post is as simple as green can be, it’s all about the color green. This may be the perfect time of year to have too much of a good thing.
This is a popular time of year when many shoppers ask about getting green paper or envelopes. We have so many options, which can make this quest exciting or cumbersome, depending on your personality.
If you are thrilled to browse around, I’d direct you to our Shop by Color and simply say “hit Green“. Otherwise, you may be asking specific questions which would then prompt different thoughts. Here’s a few suggestions based on potential project needs.
Customer says: so little time and so much to do – doing mass mailer – need nice product at budgeted price. —> I would suggest, Mohawk Britehue, color option Green.
Customer says: quality product, average price, but I cannot use metallic/shimmer envelopes, it must be envelopes made from “regular” paper. —> I would suggest, Basis Green Envelopes, yet, if you are worried this green may be a bit too dark, then consider Pop-tones.
French Pop-tones offers 5 shades of green. (Spearmint, Limeade, Sour Apple, Gumdrop and Jellybean)
Customer says: I want shimmer/metallic options —> I would suggest, Curious Metallic Botanic has been a very popular choice and other thoughts would be Stardream Fairway, Shine Lime Satin, Shine Moss and Malmero Emeraude (non metallic). (All shimmer has limited envelope choices and we do not have envelope options for the last 2 suggestions)
Customer says: I need to run these on my home printer. —> I would suggest, be sure to consider printer obstacles…(example: confirm print will show on paper color, confirm envelope or paper size will work with my printer and paper or card stock is an acceptable weight for my printer) THEN, we can move to answer… All the above suggestions will work with Inkjet and Laser printers with one exception.. Stardream brand is only laser friendly, it does not work with inkjet (it will smear)
Customer says: anything goes but I need to see the color —> I would suggest, Consider purchasing a sampler pack we call Favorite Greens. This will allow you to see and touch the quality of the paper. Also, make note that envelopes are converted from the text weight version of the paper and it is also important to confirm with a customer service representative as to whether your preferred paper does in deed have envelopes converted in the size you may need. Additionally, if you need another sample, ask a rep to include it in your box so you are in a place to make the best choice.
Happy Green exploring!
