On a recent search for Christmas cards, I thought it would be nice to buy American made cards. I thought I’d put together a list of what I found. Of course this is just a sampling. Anyone know of others?
Made in Illinois:
Stockwell Greetings (Chicago, IL)
Fantus Paper Products (Chicago, IL)
Just a Few Cards (Rockford, IL)
Made in USA:
Greenfield Paper Company – Very interesting products including cards you plant in your garden!
Leanin’ Tree: “All greeting cards and envelopes are printed in Colorado on recycled paper using soy-based inks.”
Pumpernickel Press: “Our goal is still the same today as when we began in 1998, to inspire individuals with unique, high quality greeting cards that are eco-friendly and made right here in the USA.”
