Seltzer Goods produces gift items ranging from greeting cards and art prints to coffee mugs and paper goods. Satisfying its many environmentally conscious customers, all of the Seltzer Goods’ specially designed paper products are made with FSC certified, 100% post-consumer recycled paper and then printed by expert lithographers using veggie based ink. Founded in Brooklyn, New York, the design company recently relocated to Asheville. Seltzer Goods’ products are sold nationwide and in the UK, Canada, Japan and New Zealand. A portion of Seltzers’ proceeds support Earth Justice, a law association that helps protect earth’s natural resources.
