Reducing Waste

At Sustainable Printing Co, we operate under what we call a ‘Lean-Green Manufacturing’ processes. This has involved us investing into modern, state of the art printing presses and finishing equipment that minimises waste and maximises efficiency.

  • 100% of all paper waste is recycled on a weekly basis
  • 100% of all printing plates are recycled
  • We use 100% recycled papers, some of which are manufactured carbon neutral
  • Digitally imaged printing plates are developed in our chemical free processor which uses only non-toxic processing fluids
  • Computerised press controls deliver accurate colour fast, minimising make ready waste and allowing us to tightly monitor quality and consistency throughout print runs
  • We invested in a new Heidelberg Anicolour printing press that saw a reduction in set-up paper wastage by 90%!
  • Dry toner digital print capabilities for short-run jobs allow us to print only the quantity needed
  • Computerised bindery equipment reduces waste and minimizes errors

We take genuine interest and care in reducing our printing’s environmental footprint.

We do all this while also working hard to offer cost effective printing.
