Trying to be more Eco-friendly? Then why not try our Bamboo cards?

Robust, printed, bamboo ID cards and bamboo event cards

ID cards, membership cards, festival passes and other similar items use vast amounts of plastic, and if your business or event is looking for ways to reduce environmental impact, wood based cards are a beautiful solution.

As our awareness of environmental impacts grow, it's important to challenge our use of plastics in every part of business, and whilst plastic data cards can still be a better choice for long-term and high use cards, there are some great alternative materials available, such as sustainably sourced bamboo.

Bamboo absorbs huge amounts of CO2 as it grows, and is one of the fastest growing woods in the world which makes it an entirely sustainable forest crop; ethically sourced bamboo in no way reduces bamboo forest habitats in the wild.

With a wooden grain and texture to them these bamboo ID cards look gorgeous and radiate an environmental message. Absorbing full colour print beautifully, the entirely wooden substrate biodegrades and composts back into the ecosystem when they're thrown away.

Some of the key features of bamboo ID cards and event cards include:

  • Sustainable, fast growing bamboo substrate
  • Completely biodegradable and compostable
  • Ideal for occasional or short term use
  • Unique wood grain and texture to each card
  • Robust and resilient; real wooden ID cards
  • Available printed in highest quality full colour
  • Single or double sided print designs

Bamboo cards are very tough, but not quite as tough as plastic and we recommend wood substrates for membership cards, promotional business cards, and as a great replacement for plastic cards at festivals and music concerts. Our team are very happy to advise on all of our ID card printing services and the ones best suited to bamboo treatment.

If your carbon footprint is an important part of your choice in card materials, switching from plastic to bamboo can be a great start, but it's crucial to consider how the cards will be used.

Plastic is still the most robust and long lasting substrate, ideal for credit cards, loyalty cards and other things you may carry on you and use regularly. This kind of heavy use can wear out a bamboo card which means it has to be replaced more often, and that creates an environmental impact; bamboo grows in Asia & The Americas and has to ship halfway round the world.

Part of our service is understanding these balance points and advising our clients on the ideal card substrate for their purposes, we've spent a lot of time researching it so you don't have to!
