Quarry Printing - A GREEN PRINTER

Green printing - Environmental printing

At Quarry Printing we aim for a fair balance between environmental concerns and supplying a quality product to the customer - unfortuanately, in printing, the two do not always go hand-in-hand together.

Papers used

Our preferred solution is to use, wherever possible, FSC certified stock. This is paper and card which has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, an international non-profit organisation founded in 1993 to support the world's forests. The FSC's job to ensure that the forests are managed to protect wildlife habitat and the environment. FSC certified papers generally provide an excellent printing surface - environmental well-being does not come at the cost of print quality.

Alternatively we can print on recycled papers, but this can - depending on your print requirements - impact on print quality.

Please ask if you want more information about the papers we will be printing your job on.

Printing methods

Wherever possible all jobs at Quarry Printing are digitally printed. This has many environmental advantages to conventional litho printing. In particular there is less wastage: far fewer 'make-ready' sheets are required for each job. Unlike litho printing no solvents or harmful cleaning agents are used in the printing process.
