The environment & us

In an era marked by growing environmental awareness and sustainability concerns, business owners are recognising the advantages of working with greener printers and adopting eco friendly printing, marketing materials and signage to promote their brand.

By embracing environmentally friendly printing, companies not only demonstrate their commitment to a cleaner and healthier planet but also tap into a growing consumer demographic that prioritises ethical consumption.

Today, the quality and performance of environmentally friendly printing is equal to, if not superior to the traditional counterparts. Cambridge's ever-growing range of environmentally conscious options include eco friendly business cards, PVC-free banners, custom wood signs, and recycled paper.

Certainly, in this age of increased environmental awareness, it is evident that the choice to use sustainable printing is not just a gesture; it’s a strategic decision with lots of advantages for forward-thinking businesses.

Printing and the Environment

Here's a look at how our production hubs are helping the environment and leading the way to a greener future.

Eco-Friendly Materials
We have made a shift towards eco-friendly printing by using recycled paper and vegetable-based inks. These alternatives not only reduce the amount of waste, but also lower the levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into the atmosphere, which are harmful to both human health and the environment.

Energy-Efficient Technologies
Energy consumption is another critical area where we are making substantial improvements. With advanced printing technologies, such as digital printing and energy-efficient presses, which consume less power than their older counterparts. These new presses are significantly reducing our energy usage and carbon emissions. 

Waste Reduction and Recycling
We have implemented comprehensive recycling programs to ensure that paper offcuts, packaging materials, and other waste products are properly recycled. Our digital presses have gone a step further by trying to adopt a zero-waste policy, striving to eliminate waste entirely on these jobs.

Sustainable Sourcing
We take pride in sourcing materials from suppliers that adhere to sustainable practices. Many of our paper products come with certifications such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label, indicating that they originate from responsibly managed forests. 
All our digital print jobs are printed using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) paper. Not only are they good for the environment the print quality is exceptional.

Digital Printing and Print on Demand
Reducing waste by printing only what is needed, when it is needed.

Environmentally Friendly Packaging
We use recyclable and biodegradable packaging materials to help reduce plastic waste.

Zedify Cycle Couriers
We have been working with Zedify for over 18 years. All of our Cambridge City Centre deliveries are delivered using Sustainable and Zero Emission Bikes.

UK & International Shipping
Not all our print jobs can be delivered using cycle couriers. Depending on your order and how quickly you require it, we look to use the most sustainable delivery option, Royal Mail, Fedex, DPD or DHL. We regularly check to see how these organisations are moving towards their goal of becoming carbon neutral.
