Staccato: A Complete Vision

Staccato Stationary is so excited to be exhibiting at this year's Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase!

A little more about Staccato... Staccato’s mission is to bring eco-friendly luxury to the stationery industry. Unlike other invitation companies, we don’t have a small department, or a couple of pages in a book devoted to recycled papers. Everything we offer is made from recycled or renewable fibers. We use non-toxic, eco-friendly inks when possible for our in-house printing, and work only with vendors who have an environmental policy that aligns with that of our company.

Staccato proudly features invitations on plantable seed papers. Instead of tossing your invitation after the big day, guests can plant it indoors or out for a mini wild-flower garden!

Our Signature Collection invitations are little hand-made indulgences of the most luxurious recycled and cotton papers on the market.

Instead of a traditional wedding favor, consider plantable place cards! We can customize a place card design that utilizes your wedding colors and theme. You may have a personalized message on the back such as, “We are so very glad you were here to celebrate our wedding. Please plant this card and think of us when wildflowers brighten your day!”

A lovely idea from one of our clients was to make a donation to an environmental organization in lieu of a favor. They used the back of each plantable placecard to include a message to guests about the donation.

Staccato is a home-based business, meaning we have not expanded our physical footprint to serve our customers. In our home office we utilize Energy Star rated appliances and equipment, eco-friendly detergents and cleaning supplies, and CFL light bulbs. We recycle 60% of our business and personal waste after re-purposing what we can. We re-use packaging and shipping materials when possible, and purchase only recycled new boxes and labels. While our products may be green, getting them to you contributes pollutants to our environment, so we offset our shipping-related carbon through the purchase of carbon credits.
