Here's how we are helping shape our

printing industry today...

 


ELIMINATE CHEMISTRY

  • Eliminated alcohol-based products
  • Use vegetable-based, water-soluble washes for cleaning presses, which are free from VOC-producing petroleum solvents
  • Use non-polluting wetting agents made of natural materials such as citric acid and gum arabic
  • Eliminated paper cleaning supplies and replaced with reusable cloth wipes
  • Use of color management practices and ink-key preset automation technology, which reduces press makeready times up to 70%, thus reducing paper waste and ink usage

 

SOY INKS

  • We use inks that are vegetable-based soy products)

 

WE RECYCLE

  • Solvents to reduce the amount of hazardous waste
  • Paper waste generated during the printing process
  • Wood products such as pallets and off-cuts
  • Aluminum plates and cans
  • Toner cartridges

 

WE UTILIZE RECYCLED PAPER

  • Most paper stocks contain a percentage of pre-consumer and/or post-consumer waste

 

WE EMPLOY STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY

  • Keep machinery well-maintained and in good working order to reduce waste and energy usage
  • Use of computer-to-plate technology, eliminating printing products such as fixers that contain silver and other contaminants
  • Automate wherever possible to reduce production time, energy consumption, and paper waste
  • Manage inventory as Just-In-Time to reduce waste and overhead
  • Minimize paper usage through electronic communications and billing
  • Invest in more efficient equipment, resulting in faster setup and running speeds, ensuring more output per Kw of electricity used (our Ryobi 524 printing 4-color offset press consumes 50% less energy than older presses)
  • All equipment is powered down each night to conserve energy during the night, and over weekends and holidays.
  • Use of software to clean and certify mailing data, resulting in less returned or undeliverable mail, and less wasted paper and postage.
  • Coach and educate our customers on "green printing"
