Green Printing: Another Reason Smartpress.com is the Smart Choice

Reducing Our Environmental Footprint as a Digital Printer

Smartpress.com spares no effort to be a “green”, earth-conscious printer. With our recycled paper options, environmentally superior printing presses, and continued tree planting, Smartpress.com makes choices with Mother Nature in mind.

Digital Printing Advantage

With digital print, all the files can be stored electronically so plates do not need to be created. Because there is no plate, there is no by-product waste from creating a plate or the waste of the plate itself. Unlike many print shops out there that offer multiple types of printing, Smartpress.com is strictly a digital printer. This means we produce less waste than our offset competitors.

We Are Efficient and Non-Toxic

We use the newest, most efficient digital printing technology. Our digital presses are environmentally superior:

  • Inks are in closed containers with a transfer efficiency rate of nearly 100%.
  • No wasteful ink spills.
  • No generation or use of alcohols, chlorinated solvents, acids, or flammable materials.
  • Dry-based inks require no drying time, saves valuable energy and space that would be used for the drying process.
  • Nearly all the components of the press are recyclable or reusable.

Smartpress.com Offers FSC Certified Paper 

Smartpress.com offers high quality paper choices that are also environmentally friendly. Our core paper offerings are FSC certified, which means they are approved by the Forest Stewardship Council of the United States. The FSC is a certification body that provides verification for paper and wood products to certify that the products have been sourced in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible manner.

Eco Friendly Stock

FSC certified papers are not recycled papers, though Smartpress.com does offer an Eco-friendly matte paper stock which boasts 30% recycled content. Our Eco-friendly stock is diverse and beautiful with exceptional print performance. Because it is manufactured using wind power and has a high content of recycled material, it is the ideal paper for designers who are committed to sustainable practices.
