Touchnote is all about breathing life into digital photos. It’s a funky little card which is quick and easy to create. You upload and personalise your own digital photos on the website, add your personal message and they print it and post it for you anywhere in the world. Great to use for usual occasions such as sending out birthday cards and party invites…but also for ‘remember that great night out, ‘saw this and thought of you’ -type cards…. sent as one-offs, or ordered in bulk. It’s a really nice way of sharing memories and getting in touch in a more personal way. The cards cost from as little as £1.99 falling to 99p when purchased in bulk.
Is it green? Touchnote uses unlaminated and recyclable paper. The paper used is 75% made from recycled sources and 25% from workshop off-cuts. It’s all FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) Chain of Custody certified, so that they know where their paper comes from and that it is has been responsibly sourced.
The company also works with ‘Excellent Development’, an award-winning environmental partner, who recently won the UK Charity Award for Best UK charity. They make sure that Touchnote minimises its impact on the environment by helping them offset their carbon emissions. They do lots of work to help provide sustainable water – building sand dams, digging terracing, setting up tree nurseries, and installing water piping systems.
Touchnote also works with them on a nice feature which allows you to plant endangered and medicinal trees in Africa.
