  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    Sustainability is one of our key pillars at The Art File. We are constantly reviewing our product and its raw materials, and how we can be more sustainable in our offices on a daily basis. Most recently, a large proportion of our Christmas boxed card formats for this year's festive campaign have been redesigned and repackaged in to better, stronger, and most importantly 100% recyclable packaging. This means that both the card and indeed the packaging are now 100% recyclable.
    Sustainability initiatives
    We were one of the first greeting card publishers to offer our card stock completely plastic free, as well as being one of the first independent publishers to launch plastic free Christmas product at Spring Fair earlier this year.
    Pledges for the year
    We pledge to continue to roll out sustainability checks across our entire product portfolio in a manner that does not affect our day to day high level of service.
    Sustainable Products
    The Art File Luxury Boxed Christmas Cards
    This year's luxury boxed card collection is one of The Art File's most popular and successful festive products, and this year has a new look to it. Now in 100% recyclable packaging, this stunning format still commands its luxury price point as well as being environmentally friendly. Each pack contains 8 large embossed cards and envelopes, and retails for £10.
    Christmas Trio Boxed Cards
    One of best selling Christmas formats to date, our trio boxes have a new, plastic free look. Each box contains 12 cards, 4 each of 3 designs.
    Christmas FORM 3D Pop-up Card Boxes
    This is perhaps the largest change in our quest for plastic free festive packaging. Previously, these bulky acetate boxes of 5 hand folded 3D pop up cards took up space in store, and contained lots of plastic. Now, we have a completely plastic free, smaller and more agile box that is 100% recyclable. The customer will also be supplied with a free corresponding sample card that is designed to sit on top of the stock for display purposes, thus saving space and helping the environment by being plastic free!
    Social equity at your company
    This has been a necessary action for us as a business and employer since we began our business 24 years ago. As a family business, we treat our staff like they are family.
