My Good Greeting: Photo Greetings on Recycled Paper

Just Married Wedding AnnouncementIt’s about time someone offered a service that allows you to create your own photo greeting cards that are printed on eco-friendly paper. My Good Greetings does just that.

For the first time, beautiful custom photo greeting cards, announcements and invitations, with matching envelopes and address labels, are completely earth-conscious – from printing to packaging – every step of the way.

“First and foremost, we offer great designs on a website that makes it easy for customers to create their own custom cards,” said Rene Bross, co-founder and lead designer at My Good Greetings. “Finding a cost-effective way to print cards on beautiful papers with the highest recycled fiber content available completed our vision.”

Mygoodgreetings.comfills an important niche that was previously missing from the custom photo cards, invitations and announcements market. Using a Certified Green Business printing company means that everything is printed on digital presses with biodegradable toners, and even a water-based coating. The 100% recycled Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified recycled card stock meets strict environmental and socioeconomic standards, is produced with a high Post Consumer Waste (PCW) content fiber and responsibly harvested forests – never from old growth timber stands or rain forests. Even the electricity used to produce the stock is offset with Green-e® certified renewable power sources.

The paper’s superior archival quality is acid-free for long lasting color that won’t fade.

“Our family has been sending photo greeting cards for years,” said Tom Bross, co-founder of My Good Greetings. “Last year, trying to make green choices where we can, we wanted to print our photo cards on recycled stock but were shocked to discover how difficult it was to find recycled paper options. So we created My Good Greetings because we know that other people are looking for this kind of solution too.” offers birthday cards, announcements, invitations and holiday greeting cards that range from hip, fresh and contemporary to simple, clean and classic in design. A sophisticated, yet easy-to-use online interface lets customers choose from a wide selection of designer cards.

Ordering is as easy as uploading a favorite photograph, customizing the text and approving the final design. The impeccably designed, reasonably priced custom greetings will be printed and sent within 7-10 days.

Why buy green? Because Green is Good.™

Located in Spokane, Washington, My Good Greetings was founded on the principle that it is possible to make a lasting impression in print, and be environmentally conscious at the same time. Utilizing Rene Bross’ 20 year experience as a graphic designer, the company has created sets of impeccably designed Custom Announcements (new baby, new puppy, new home, wedding, save-the-date, etc.), Custom Invitations (baby and bridal shower, birthday party, etc.), and Custom Stationery (thank you cards, address labels, etc.).

My Good Greetings uses a printer certified as a Bay Area Certified Green Business that utilizes environmentally safe products in every stage of their printing process, including biodegradable toners and digital presses, which emit 90% less Volatile Organic Compounds. The card stock is manufactured by New Leaf Paper with renewable energy. The paper is 100% recycled, contains 50% post-consumer recovered fiber and is processed chlorine free.
