What is Eco-Friendly Printing?
Eco-Friendly Printing reduces its impact on the environment by:
Minimizing or eliminating Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from the plate making and printing process.
Eliminating chemically-tainted waste water from plate making and conventional printing.
Utilizing Recycled and / or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Paper.
Using vegetable based inks for offset printing, eliminating almost all of the VOCs in the ink.
Using non-toxic, biodegradable, dry toner for digital printing.
What most printing companies don't tell you is that every time they put ink on paper they pollute the Air and Water. The waterless printing press does not use a dampening system, thereby eliminating the need for both fountain solution and water. This significantly reduces our environmental impact. In fact, recent testing determined that waterless printing alone reduces VOCs by 75% compared to conventional printing.

The waterless press also improves press efficiency and print quality. There is no need to constantly manage ink/water balance, which results in the press coming up to color faster and maintaining color consistency throughout the print run.
This reduces paper waste which has an immediate and positive impact on the production cost. Our press achieves this by using up to 50% less paper for press setup than most conventional presses. We Print on Recycled and/or FSC Paper!
