Our first entry, Hunter, is in the Green category. Engraved in Dandelion-yellow ink, this invitation is not just printed on recycled paper but also reduces paper by combining the invitation, reception card and response all-in-one. Neenah's Environment Grocer Kraft paper and envelopes, a premium recycled paper, is made with 30% post-consumer waste and raw wind power. The envelope liner is screen printed on handmade recycled paper.
The Trendy Awards recognize the latest trends and the best in the industry in greeting cards, gifts and all things stationery. Retailers and others involved in the industry are invited to vote on each of the entries, using either a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" vote. At the end of a two-week window, March 2-16, the votes are tallied, with the top 10 entries in each category being selected as finalists. At that point, the panel of industry judges will be invited to vote on the finalists. Judge votes will be tallied, and a winner named in each category. Winners will receive editorial recognition in an issue of Stationery Trends magazine, as well as an award to display in their offices.
