We have a responsibility to manage our use of resources, which is why we have worked hard to earn both Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody Certification and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Certification.

More than 100 million hectares of forest in 82 countries are FSC® managed, and over 25% of these are Canadian. Our FSC® Chain of Custody (CoC) certified paper has been harvested under strict environmental, social and economical standards.

PEFC is an independent and non-profit organization that is the largest forest certification system in the world. The organization uses independent third-party certification to promote Sustainable Forest Management (SFM).

When we print we use the latest technology such as our award-winning Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 105-6+LX. Our newer machines are more energy efficient, and produce less setup waste than past press models.

Our vegetable based inks replace petroleum and reduce Volatile Organic Compound emissions by 26%. Of course we follow up with rigorous recycling and cleanup policies that feel like second nature around here.
