Hi I and my girlfriend are currently working on Zoomaka an animal card game! (zoomaka.tumblr.com). We are looking for eco-friendly printers based in Europe, Africa or America preferably. If you know of any producers we would be happy if you could share your knowledge with us.

If it's cards you're after, might be worthwhile looking at getting a business card place to do them. They usually have recycled stock as an option, and smaller ones might offer environmentally friendly ink.

If you're looking for a regular printer Overnightprints.com is super eco-friendly (trees from sustainably sourced forests, waterless printing, and option for 100% recycled paper) and have good quality stuff. http://www.overnightprints.com/about/green-printing

They definitely are more geared towards promotional things, but I wonder if you talked to them they could figure out a custom order for you.

I also just found this one: http://www.makeplayingcards.com/
They don't seem as ridiculously green-conscious as Overnight, but it still seems like they make an effort.

I also have been looking eco-friendly printers for my card game. I found Cartamundi has quite a good reputation as is vetted by several non-profit forestry groups. They may have a large minimum order, but I am still in talks with them and have not personally confirmed the order size.

American printers have tried to differentiate themselves through green printing so you may find some that are willing to use soy-based inks, partially recycled cardstock, etc.

Keep me posted if you find any others and all the best with your project!
