Announces Collaboration with Ecolibris

Seattle, WA, September 25, 2008 --( GreetQ Card Company, an online greeting card retailer, has announced a collaboration with Ecolibris, an online environmentally-focused company also based in Seattle. Ecolibris allows it’s customers to offset their book purchases by planting trees. Readers can visit the Ecolibris website and select the number of books they would like to offset; Ecolibris then works with a number of planting partners to plant trees on the customer’s behalf.

GreetQ founder, Jennifer Taylor, explains that the collaboration with Ecolibris was motivated by a personal interest in being environmentally responsible, while taking into consideration that each year over 2.5 billion holiday greeting cards are sent in the U.S. alone. While acknowledging a gap in services that help consumers offset paper goods usage, Taylor adds “Sending paper greeting cards is a worldwide tradition which has not been fully replaced by the advent of e-cards. We thought that this was an opportunity to make a significant and positive change to offset that impact… Although we work to find independent card designers that use environmentally conscious practices, such as printing with soy inks or on recycled paper, this collaboration should help fill the remaining gaps.” offers greeting card services that allow customers to personalize and schedule paper greeting cards to be mailed online. Shoppers can buy paper greeting cards online, add a personal message, then schedule the cards to be sent on a specific date. GreetQ then mails the personalized card to the recipient on behalf of their customers on that specific date. The scheduled cards, which can be scheduled for up to one year in advance, are queued online in the customer’s “card-queue.”

The company says it chose this model because Netflix has proven to be a successful with the queuing model and that online shoppers have become comfortable with the concept of queuing as a means of organizing information.

With the new collaboration GreetQ will work with Ecolibris to plant a tree for every 10 greeting cards purchased through the website.

As evident with the card queuing model, the additional focus on offsetting one’s environment footprint further defines GreetQ as a progressive, modern take on the traditional greeting card retailer.
