We care about sustainability, and we do our utmost to minimise our business’s ecological footprint. The good news is that short-run printing (print on demand) is more resource-efficient than offset or large-run. Printing on an as-needed basis eliminates the impact of wasteful overprinting.
Our process is water-free, and ink cartridges recycled through Close The Loop. We use no solvent inks or resin based papers. Our minimal paper offcuts are used for samples or in the case of smaller scrap, re-pulped.
Cotton fine art papers use cotton linter, a by-product from the textile and oil industries. Because cotton paper recycles discarded linter, it has no additional environmental impact. No cotton is grown specifically for paper, and linters would be a wasted by-product if it weren't for the production of cotton paper.
Bamboo, Agave and Hemp paper are excellent sustainable options. Crops are fast-growing, don’t need pesticides, and use minimal water in their harvest. Alpha-cellulose papers use materials from sustainably managed forests (FSC or PEFC certified).
We're proud to say we’ve eliminated 95% of plastic from our packaging. Tubes and print boxes are made from recyclable content, and are recyclable (if you don’t plan to reuse them). We also use paper-based protective packaging - only if we need to use protective packaging. Our tubes and print boxes have been designed specifically to avoid the need for wasteful plastic-based bubble wrap/void fill.
