How Do You Make Eco-Friendly Printing?
Since there’s no official standard, you’re on your own to determine who’s really committed. In general, an environmentally minded printer should: use the most eco-friendly papers available; reduce toxic chemicals, waste ink, and solvents; be willing to use soy or other vegetable inks without any price premium; educate customers about how to reduce a project’s environmental impact; and provide safe working conditions for employees.
Offset printing uses the concept of oil and water repelling each other to produce a beautiful, high-quality print. The rollers distribute ink onto an aluminum plate which has been photo-engraved with text and images. The images on the plate are transferred to a rubber blanket, and then applied to paper by pressing the paper against the impression cylinder. Offset printing is best for longer print runs of the highest quality.
Digital printing utilizes plate-free technology to produce pleasing-color prints. The result is an inexpensive print that is faster and creates less waste. The ink doesn’t absorb into the paper of a digital press, instead sitting on top of the substrate, forming a layer on the surface. Digital printing is generally better for smaller print runs that may require a very fast turnaround.
