On this page you will find the most frequently asked questions about Norra cards!
Why do you use paper from the Netherlands?
As I am very much concerned with the environment, I wanted to print my Nordic nature designs on sustainable paper. In my quest to find a sustainable alternative to virgin paper, I stumbled across multiple alternatives. While there were also some sustainable options offered by companies in Sweden, they did not entirely meet my requirements. As a minimum I wanted the paper to be thick, unbleached and recyclable. Therefore I decided to look beyond the borders of my new home country. This is how I stumbled across Veezel©. Do you want to read more about why I chose Veezel©? You can read it here.
How long does it take until my package arrives?
The delivery time depends on where you live. On this page you will find an overview of the usual delivery times. Please note that in general, it might take longer due to Covid-19 (shortage of personnel, transportation restrictions). Besides, be prepared that just before the Christmas holidays there are also usually some delays in delivery.
What is sustainable about your product?
Norra cards are printed on paper made from recycled grass, recycled roadside grass and only a small portion of virgin paper. This process saves water and energy and prevents chemical pollution (no bleaching) and paper waste (by recycling paper). By re-using the roadside grass, this natural resource gets another purpose after it is mowed, instead of being turned into natural waste. Since all the resources (recycled paper, roadside grass and virgin paper) are sourced in the region where the paper is produced, the CO2 emissions of transportation are limited during the production process. What is more, the designs are printed with bio-ink, which is based on vegetable oil (an in-exhaustive natural resource) instead of petroleum (an exhaustive resource).

Why do you focus on Nordic nature in your designs?
Before I moved to Sweden, I had already travelled multiple times through Nordic countries. I simply fell in love with their beauty. Because I am living in Sweden now, I wanted to make a tribute to all the amazing creatures that live in the Nordics.
