New Posty Cards Facility

We have outgrown our current space, and since we are committed to environmentally sound practices, designing our expansion/remodel project to LEED green building standards is a top priority.

Posty Cards, Inc., a manufacturer of personalized business greeting cards, has broken ground on a $6.4 million expansion/remodel that is being built to LEED v3 Gold green building standards. When the project is completed in July 2010, the new facility will feature a large solar photovoltaic array, solar heated water, high efficiency HVAC, natural lighting and automatic artificial lighting control systems, rain water reclamation for irrigation and waste management, and water efficient native plant landscaping. The project, designed by McHenry Shaffer Mitchell Architects, and constructed by Turner Construction Company, will be the first LEED v3 Gold manufacturing facility in Kansas City.

Posty Cards has manufactured greeting cards in Kansas City for over 60 years and has been located at 1600 Olive Street for over 20 years. The 25,000 square foot expansion and renovation will double the current space for the growing company.

“We have outgrown our current space, and since we are committed to environmentally sound practices, designing our expansion/remodel project to LEED green building standards is a top priority,” said Erick Jessee, General Manager.
