Environmental Responsibility

We’re proud to offer sustainable, non-toxic printing services that help take care of our community, our staff, and the planet.


We use soy-based inks because they have a very low or no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and are less harmful to the environment than petroleum-based inks. They also print beautifully (which makes our customers happy) and smell a whole lot better (which makes our press team happy).


Our house stock papers are all post-consumer recycled sheets, which means we’re saving both trees and water compared to conventional papers. When we have paper overages, we either donate them or recycle them.


In our offset printing department, we use state-of-the-art Computer-to-Plate (CTP) technology that uses water instead of the toxic chemicals used in the traditional print process. In our digital division, everything goes straight from the computer to paper, avoiding the use of chemicals and water altogether.
