Beautiful eco-friendly stationery is no longer an oxymoron thanks to a handful of talented artisans and papiers, like Lisa Wong Jackson. Eschewing the grainy and weirdly textured card stock of old in favor of sustainable paper and soy- and vegetable-based inks, Jackson’s Good on Paper Design is everything you want in a design company — one of a kind images, exquisite lettering, and environmentally sensitive, hand-pressed printing.

Everything she produces just looks special, from the line of recycled stationery to the custom wedding invitations she prints on either tree free or sustainably sourced paper. It’s a little more expensive than your typical Hallmark offerings but we think it’s well worth it. After all, if you’re going to spend the time and effort to send a letter, invitation, or announcement to someone, you want it to look, well, good on paper.
