Green Printing

We've had an Epiphany and we've gone Green!
In our efforts to be more environmentally friendly,
we have made sweeping changes in our printing products
and business practices. All of our products now use
Soy-based inks with vibrant color!
Safer Aqueous and UV coatings!
Paper from more renewable sources!
This Website is even on Wind Powered Hosting!

Green PrintingHere at the dawn of the 21st century, people are seeing firsthand how delicate the environment is and that each of us has an individual responsibility to change our habits in regards to our use of natural resources and pollution. But we’re doomed if the businesses that manufacture and distribute the products and services we depend on don’t change their practices, as well. It is vital for companies to become more environmentally conscious. We seek to be an example of environmental awareness. As these environmental issues become more and more critical, we are striving to use the safest and least polluting materials in producing printed products.

INK
Soy InkSoy-oil based inks instead of traditional petroleum-based ink. Also known as vegetable-oil ink, soy ink is a major advancement in the printing industry. Soy ink is a safe and environmentally friendly ink because of its simple compound compared to petroleum–based ink. Using an uncomplicated process to make the ink, it consumes very little energy and makes it very efficient. Soy ink has many wonderful advantages; one is its noticeable clarity, which allows for brighter ink, which petroleum-based ink cannot match because of its darker substance. Soy inks have become popular for their vibrant colors. Recycling paper printed with soy ink is faster because soy ink is more easily removed from paper. As the printing industry evolves, soy ink becomes an increasingly popular and viable alternative to petroleum-based ink.

COATING
environmentally friendly printing productsUsing unique Aqueous and UV coatings is just another significant step in producing environmentally friendly print products. The coatings, which consist of very low to zero traces of volatile organic compounds (VOC), reduce damaging components that harm the atmosphere and the surrounding environments. Impregnated washing systems are used for press rollers and blankets, which consist of diminutive traces of VOCs. Fountain solutions are free of, or use reduced VOC solutions.
As we are ever searching for safer and more environmentally friendly printing products and practices, all solutions are recycled and hazardous waste is removed from the facilities, preventing it from getting into the natural environment. All facilities are alcohol-free environments using only alcohol substitutes. Continued development in pressroom products assures only the safest solutions will be used.

PAPER and TREES
Paper from renewable sourcesEach person in the United States uses approximately 750 pounds of paper each year.
We utilize paper that is produced specifically for papermaking and is not produced from illegally harvested trees. We support suppliers in their quest to use tree farms for producing printable paper and the conservation of forests for the betterment of wildlife and air quality. We are in a unremitting search to find the highest quality and brightest paper while keeping the health and future of the environment in mind.
