Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®)
The FSC is a global organization which sets standards for guiding and coordinating the development of responsible forest management throughout the different biogeographic regions of the world. The FSC’s principles and criteria span economic, social, and environmental concerns and its measures are implemented through a variety of certifications.
Soy-based ink is an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum or oil-based inks. Soy inks reduce VOC (volatile organic compounds) emission and aid in paper recycling (Soy ink is removed easier from paper during the recycling process). They spread approximately 15% further than oil based inks, reducing ink usage and they clean up faster, which means they are using less chemicals. They actually provide an additional benefit that does not have anything to do with the environment. We have found soy inks to produce brighter and more vibrant colors.
Recycling paper is not just about waste paper, although we do recycle nearly all of our waste paper. We offer a host of paper brands that contain upward to 100% recyclable paper which can be recycled up to 7 times. Our recycling commitment also includes all of our printing plates and wooden skids and pallets.
