Printing Green

Orange you glad we print green?

Paper

The paper Prima uses is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council which is dedicated to promoting the responsible management of the world’s forests.

Inks

Soy ink is made from soybeans instead of petroleum. In addition to being more environmentally friendly, you also enjoy brighter colors and it is much easier to recycle. Also soy inks have low levels of volatile organic compounds which reduce air pollution.

Shorter Print Runs

Prima’s technology allows small quantity print runs thus eliminating waste by efficiently printing the actual amount of material intended for use.

Direct Imaging Printer

This printing technology completes jobs 38% faster than conventional printing, resulting in less energy consumption. Presstek also allows for chemical-free plate making.

Waterless Printing

Waterless printing does not rely on isopropyl alcohol or water, unlike conventional printing. This shortens production time, eliminates water consumption and reduces the release of volatile organic compounds.

Reduced Emissions

Prima invests in an ultraviolet light drying process that reduces 90% of volatile emissions into the atmosphere.

Recycle

All excess paper is recycled; nothing is sent to landfills.
