As my subscriber base has grown it has occurred to me that buying in cardboard to secure the safety of prints is both expensive and a little bit of a waste. I don't want prints to get ruined in transit and the card does make the prints look nice just for propping up on a shelf, so it isn't going anywhere but I feel like I can do better. I feel like I should be recycling.
With recycling in mind I called in at a local DIY business this morning and asked if it was alright to take some card from their paper/card bin. I was really pleased to see that they had a bin for recycling in the first place but even more pleased when they said yes to me having some of it.
The card is clean, it does have a few poked holes in it but nothing massive and more importantly it is perfectly reusable and free.
The question is, are my Patreons and art fans alright with the use of recycled card?
Please let me know your thoughts.
