Why Paper?

Sourced from Monadnock Paper Mills based out of New Hampshire, this sustainably-minded company produces a premium paper alternative to plastic gift cards. 

  • 100% Biodegradable
  • Turbine powered, Earth-friendly manufacturing of materials
  • Renewably sourced paper cards through responsible forestation
  • Comparable thickness of a credit card, delivering a similar quality to our plastic gift cards

Please Note: Paper Gift Cards can be torn in half and are water-soluble. If you require a more durable gift card, please see our Plastic Gift Cards.

Printing Instructions

Gift cards printed can have up to a 1/8" margin of error regarding how images are centred due to the card cutting process. This is an industry-standard, which can occasionally result in up to a 3mm off-centre image in any direction for the artwork, and would not be eligible for replacement.

Return Policy

Due to the nature of physical gift cards, we are unable to offer any returns/refunds on gift card orders once they have been printed. If a card order has moved to the proofing stage but not printed, a €15 charge will apply, which will be taken from the refund provided. For more information please visit our Physical Gift Card FAQ.
