We are delighted to announce that we have designed a new plastic free Shakies range. We are calling the range Paper Shakies.
The collection currently includes birthday cards, age cards, occasions and spring seasons. You can view the entire range here.
We’ve been manufacturing our Shakies cards since 2003 and they have undergone quite a few style changes, but the glitter and confetti shaking around within the card idea has more or less remained the same.
At the beginning of the year we set ourselves a goal to produce a plastic free design. This has proved challenging but we solved it by printing onto tracing paper using specially formulated inks. Paper confetti shakes around behind the image.
The cards are sold unwrapped by default with a specially designed clasp label which holds the envelope in place. We’ve even produced a biodegradable waxed paper bag to replace our plastic outer pack bags. We will supply the cards individually cello wrapped if our customers require this.
Our plan is to convert our entire Shakies range to Paper Shakies by the end of 2020.
