All our paper products are made from waste from the graphic industry. We actively look for residual materials and examine them in detail. After that, we start thinking of our design and the beautiful products and planning tools we could make of the available materials. This makes our production process different from the usual process. We start from the available waste materials before we start designing our product.
We do not add new paper, so there is no new waste created. Sustainability is in the DNA of Redopapers. We apply our sustainable approach to every aspect of our company. For example: we ship orders in used paper materials, we use ecological paper tape to seal your orders and we limit our transportation as much as possible.
No, we do not extract new raw materials, instead we use existing materials. Within every industry - in our case the graphic industry - raw materials inevitably end up being waste. That's the point where we change direction. By giving new life to paper waste from print companies and cultural institutions, we are getting closer to a circular economy. Besides: we love paper! This specific way of working gives us the opportunity to process beautiful sheets of old paper into a practical and aesthetically unique design product.
Yes, the covers of our agendas and booklets are made from plastic banners from the cultural sector. In our blocnote we also glue fabric remnants of (fashion) designers.
Although paper is our main raw material, we consistently look for waste streams to give new purpose to.
Redopapers produces locally. Our raw materials come from local print companies and cultural houses. Almost all steps in our production process take place in and around Antwerp.
Redopapers cooperates with the non-profit organisation Katrinahof, Koca and the ZNA Psychiatric Hospital Stuivenberg. People in a socially vulnerable position help us in our studio. We provide defined tasks, based on their personal talents. They are an indispensable link in our production process.
We start from waste. First we look for the available waste streams, only then we start designing our product.
The selection of the paper we use is done personally and by hand at local print companies. The prints that are chosen determine the identity of our planners, to-do lists and notepads. It is incredibly exciting to cut different misprints each time. The result that emerges is always surprising. This way, every product is unique.
At print company Zwartopwit, we print our designs directly on their paper waste streams. This means an enormous amount of time saved for Redopapers and above all: less paper waste. Curious how this works exactly? Read more about it here.
In our notebooks that have a coptic binding - the blank notebook and bullet notebook - you can see a chain stitch on the back of the book. The coptic binding ensures that the book falls flat open. This way, you can make full use of every page. The binding is firm, but also offers a lot of flexibility.
Most of our products consist of a mix of paper types. The variation in weight and structure gives a surprising end result. All paper types are uncoated and therefore easy to write on. Both with a normal pen, a fountain pen and a pencil. Of course, we cannot guarantee that every paper type will suit you well.
We use original binding and gluing techniques to design a beautiful product. Therefore, we do not sell loose paper separately.
Yes, all Redopapers products can be recycled. But before you start recycling, there are still many options left. How about wrapping your next gift with our prints? Turn it into a nice envelope, stick it on the wall or frame it. Write from left to right and from right to left and use every little piece of the paper. When there is nothing left to use the paperware for, put it in the bin for old paper.
Do you have a product with a plastic banner? When the book is completely full, cut the cover loose from the paper and sort the materials by type.
At checkout, shipping costs are automatically calculated based on your destination. We keep shipping costs as low as possible. We do not take a large margin, so free shipping is not possible. This is because our products are made entirely locally and circularly.
