Coloring Book Craze!

Adult coloring books have taken a recent rise in popularity. As quoted by fans of the genre in, Inside the Adult Coloring Book Craze,

“I love it,” said Nichole Schmidt, a stay-at-home mom. “It’s very meditative. It gets me away from the kids. And this is my Zen.”

“Far more people are looking for things that are unplugged,” said Ann Garbarino, an advisor at the Small Business Development Center at Stony Brook. “And it’s something that a lot of generations can agree on.”

Printing in ECO mode

We recently switched our printers to economy mode which reduces the amount of toner used on each page.  Not only does this help keep our costs low it also reduces the number of toner cartridges used. All our toner cartridges are returned for refilling when empty.

Wouldn’t it be cheaper to print labels with a commercial printer? Commercial printers require large print runs to be cost effective.  As a small company we don’t ship enough product to meet the volume numbers required for offset printing. Printing our labels in-house allows minor corrections and adjustments to labels with no waste. We are always looking for ways to reduce waste and keep costs low.

Rhinos in White

Cardboard Safari has joined with the International Rhino Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to the survival of the world’s rhino species through conservation and research, to spread awareness about the plight of the rhino.  Rhinos have existed on Earth for more than 50 million years. In the past, rhinos were much more diverse and widespread (occurring in North America and Europe as well as in Africa and Asia).  Today, only five species of rhinos survive.  All rhinos are under threat of extinction, and all but one species is on the verge of extinction.  Without drastic action, some rhinos could be extinct in the wild within the next 10-20 years.

Cardboard Safari offers premium-quality animal figures made of recycled cardboard.  Rhino, Deer, Moose and Bison heads are currently available in both brown and white cardboard. Each animal puzzle is laser-cut for precision fit, easily assembles using slotted construction and is made to mount on the wall.
