A Purposeful Passion

“Sustainability is more critical than ever. And we’re passionate about sourcing the best materials with the least environmental impact,” said Matt Hazel, senior director of Supply Chain Management at Smartpress’ parent company, The Bernard Group.


That sourcing includes testing various eco-friendly materials to ensure their viability and confirm they provide the same, if not better, quality than less-sustainable alternatives. “We’re doing our part in finding the greenest and most renewable materials that exist,” said Hazel.

“We’re passionate about sourcing the best print materials with the least environmental impact.”



What makes Smartpress’ new substrates sustainable?

  • They’re all 100% recyclable, with more than half being FSC certified.
  • The new signage materials join an eco-friendly printing repertoire of recycled stocks and hemp paper.


“Once we’ve established that a material is indeed sustainable, prints the way it should and hits the colors needed, we share it with our clients,” Hazel said. “I’m convinced that together, we have the power to change the world.”
