Insurance giant, Aviva used plastic cards as name badges for their investor, corporate and internal events. The true definition of single use plastic – cards over printed with attendee’s name and organisation details that were used for a few hours then discarded. 

When Aviva heard about Green Gift Cards then asked us to create a solution that would be compatible with their Magicard Enduro 3 desktop printer that used a black only resin ink to overprint the name cards. Paperboard is compatible with our DoD thermal inkjet personalisation but does not work with desk top printers as the surface is too fine for the dye sublimation process used. So to overcome the challenge we applied a cellulose gloss laminate from Celanese onto our cards to create a successful solution. 

Aviva is now using plastic free name cards for all its events. A small but important change for good

Introducing our range of plastic-free cards

Since 2006 we have been innovating and disrupting in the card market to develop what is a leading range of environmentally-friendly card solutions. So what sets us apart?

Well that’s the thing, there’s a number of reasons why Green Gift Cards are renowned in the world of card production. It is the material we use for our cards and the certification that the cards come with. It is also the compelling environmental story (we urge you to watch the video) that is behind all of our cards and the fact that, once finished with, our cards are compostable and can be recycled in normal household waste streams. Oh and we’ll say it again – being environmentally-friendly doesn’t mean they are more expensive. In fact they offer great value compared to plastic cards.
