We love this note from Kristen, the designer:
I think living a worthwhile life is about taking risks, valuing time & experiences, doing what you love even if it doesn't even seem feasible, being who you really are even if to doesn't meet the expectations of others, going outside, devoting yourself to a practice, doing something creative and being vulnerable even if you are scared, not taking the easy route on purpose, surrounding ourselves with people who we love and who lift us up, creating and nurturing another life, spending our lives doing the things we feel really matter. All of these things are about energy awareness, strength and self-emergence. What do you want to put your love and energy toward in the only life you know right now? How can we free ourselves from things that are NOT worth our while? How can we expand fully? This underlying current is what fuels my creativity. Even if it is subtle, I hope this energy of exploring and learning and loving to be alive, through the hard times and the good, is reflected in my work.

Recycled kraft paper sleeve.
Designed, printed and assembled by Worthwhile Paper with love in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
Worthwhile Paper is a family operated business by a wife-and-husband team. They pride themselves on using water-based screen printing inks and recycled white and kraft paper stocks from French Paper Company, a Michigan paper mill that operates on 100% hydropower.
Additionally, they like to use their resources wisely - ganging up cards on larger sized sheets to save energy and materials, using leftover ink from other jobs to make new inks, using leftover scrap paper to make their promotional materials, re-using cardboard boxes from the shop's shipments, etc.
End of life
Recyclable and compostable.
