We are very aware of the environmental impact our company has on the environment. Printing in general is not an environmentally friendly process, but we endeavour to maintain the utmost environmentally compatible operations.
All of our papers are from well managed sources or are recycled. All of our papers are manufactured to ISO 14001 and are chlorine free.
We only use vegetable based inks as opposed to oil based inks. Any waste ink is carefully disposed of.
Paper trimmings, whilst kept to a minimum, are sorted and recycled. Overprinted matter that may contain client details is shredded in-house before going off for recycling. All aluminium plates are recycled. In short, we throw virtually nothing away and if we dispose of anything it is via a licensed waste agency.
No chemicals are used in the pre-press department. This means plates are produced completely dry using no developers or fixers, resulting in no waste chemicals to dispose of.
A full environmental specification is available on request.
