Green Day

We wanted to put down our wheatgrass shots and take this opportunity to talk about how "green" we actually are. The earthy bandwagons have come and gone, but being green is a major part of Luscious Verde’s lifestyle. It’s even in our name for cryin' out loud!

We have many FSC-certified, green-seal-certified, post-consumer fibers and mill-certified recycled papers. Our Web site has all of the knowledge that you will need to turn your event green (without using food coloring).

Reuse is a term we use daily by shipping boxes of scrap paper to schools and programs both locally and nationally. We also use our excess paper and create amazing thank you notes and smaller gifts to liven up our UPS boxes. So, if you want to get a little greener with your stationery needs, look us up. (And with every single order we ship, we plant one tree through a great partnership with Trees for the Future!)

Big Love

Every day, we answer phone calls from across the country from our unique retailers. Thankfully, not all of them have the word "paper" listed in their name, but some of them are pretty darn interesting. Now, before we drive ourselves batty, we would love to have the answers to these burning questions. Don’t be timid. You can ask us anything (even about our ex-boyfriends) and we still won’t break up with you.

1. Who actually is Anne Grace from Anne Grace Designs?
2. What does Papery and Cakery prefer: paper or cake?
3. Are there parfaits at the Paper Parfait, and when can I get one?
4. Who won: Rock, Paper, or Scissors?
5. Who is Ethan Niles?
6. The Paperia on the Hill: is your favorite show One Tree Hill?
7. What does AGI in AGI Events stand for?
8. Why is Cambridge Street Papers located on Main Street?
9. What Have You Heard?

Hoop Dreams

An eagle-eyed friend of Luscious Verde snapped this photo from TV during the (relatively) recent N.C.A.A. men's basketball championship. The fellow is Korie Lucious, a freshman guard for the Michigan Spartans, who lost the final game to the University of North Carolina. After the loss, we offered Mr. Lucious a job here at Luscious Verde, but he unfortunately did not pass the required proofreading test.

The Color of Love

For those of you still looking for that special someone, don't ever say the world of design can't do anything for you. Check it out. Personally, I'm a Blue with a mix of Orange. I don't see a listing for Burnt Umber, though...
