Going Green-Printing

Going green has never been more important, which is why many business owners are choosing to conserve energy and reduce their impact on the environment’s resources in whatever way they can. If you are interested in reducing the carbon footprint produced by your company, then begin using the following printing solutions:

1.Recycled Paper

Many business owners think they have to go to great lengths to find recycled paper, but the truth is you can find it at most local office supply or printing stores. Using recycled paper reduces our reliance on trees and other natural resources and lowers your company’s carbon footprint.

2. Print Business Cards on Reincarnation Matte

Every successful business owner needs business cards in order to network and grow their business. The next time you order a new set of business cards, consider using reincarnation matte. This material is 100 percent recycled and uses 50 percent post-consumer waste.

3. Ask for Soy-Based Ink

Another way to reduce the carbon footprint of your business is to ask for soy-based ink. This type of ink releases less than five percent volatile organic compounds (or VOCs) into the environment, which is much less than petroleum-based ink. Plus, soy-based ink makes the paper easier to recycle since soy can be stripped easier than traditional ink types. Soy-based ink also produces a

brighter ink while using fewer materials. In fact, soy-based ink can spread roughly 15 percent farther than regular ink, which reduces the amount of ink used and printer cleanup costs.
