A stored-value card has monetary value or data physically stored on the card and is commonly used by retailers in the form of gift cards, loyalty cards and bounce-back cards. These are often made with materials that are not recyclable and have a greater negative impact on the environment.
Neenah’s ENVIRONMENT Retail Card, made from 40-percent recycled fiber, is FSC certified, manufactured with Green Energy and recyclable. The new card is available in both gloss and silk finishes in 97 bright white, making it the brightest paper-based gift card available. It offers excellent printability on both finishes and can accept embossing, foil stamping and laminates as well as magnetic stripes and bar codes. With a lifespan of one to two years based on moderate use, other uses for the ENVIRONMENT Retail Card include loyalty membership cards and hotel room keys.
