Green Printing Starts In The Forest
What is Responsible Forest Management?
Green Printing begins with careful forest management. The forest is well maintained under strict guidelines to assure it remains healthy and productive. Trees are selected from certain forests so as to not cause undue damage to the ecosystem. The effect foresting has on the land is mitigated to the greatest degree possible to protect the ecosystem. Harvested areas are replanted and maintained to keep the forest and surrounding lands healthy, vibrant and productive.
We provide Green Printing through our FSC® Certification.
What is FSC?
Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests through its 10 FSC Principles and associated FSC Criteria. Responsible Forest Management provides a way of using trees and non-timber forest products to meet people’s ever-increasing need for lumber, paper and other products without degrading forest ecosystems.
FSC provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.

How Does FSC Save Forests?
One of the most important aspects of using materials made of wood generated from FSC certified forests is the saving of the forest itself. By purchasing FSC certified products such as printed paper products, you are stimulating demand for products made from FSC certified wood, which in-turn keeps the forest productive and profitable for the owner. In this way, forest owners are much less likely to sell their forests for development into housing projects, golf courses or business parks.
What is FSC Chain-of-Custody Certification?
After the forest receives FSC certification, the next phase is to track the product being converted as it travels through the manufacturing and supply chains. This ensures that the product is genuine and the FSC certified claim on the product is credible and verifiable. Every company and organization that works with the product on the way to the end-user must be FSC certified.
How Chain-of-Custody works …
Chain-of-Custody is an information trail about the path taken by products from the forest to the consumer including:

When you order your printed piece as FSC Certified, we will add the FSC label to your job.
The mark we use indicates that the piece is FSC certified, lists our FSC trademark, license code and the type of FSC paper we used to produce your job such as FSC Mix or FSC Recycled. The mark can be black or green in either landscape of portrait. When using the FSC label, you may also choose to add the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal to your job. We are able to offer this additional enhancement because our certification provider is certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
“Buying Print Products with the FSC label and Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal helps support a healthier planet and an improved quality of life for forest communities.”
