Eco-Friendly Printing & Environmental Initiatives
Every employee, within all of our locations, believes that it is our responsibility as individuals and as a company to be a good steward of our environment and maintain eco-friendly printing practices. In an industry where there is a strong focus on environmental sustainability, we make the right choices in keeping with our values and with our ecological printing policies.
|Paper is virtually all obtained from renewable forestry harvests|
|We use agri-based inks|
|Our “house” coated sheets are FSC® Certified|
|Energy efficiency programs reduce our electrical consumption|
|We purchase Renewable Energy Certificates utilizing wind power|
|On-line ordering and proofing systems save fuel and other precious raw materials|
|99.9% of our waste paper is collected and recycled. That means we recycle 20 tons of paper each week!|

We are certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and by the Forestry Stewardship Council® (FSC®) for our efforts in utilizing papers originating from a sustainable, ecological source and for maintaining rigorous processes, procedures and training to ensure our standards of excellence and environmental responsibility.
