Environmental printing, eco print, sustainable print and green printing options

At Kwik Kopy, we realise that many businesses wish to consider environmental sustainability and environmental impacts while planning yearly printing and marketing schedules.

We also understand that even the most environmentally conscious business has a budget, so we work hard to find a balance between the print needs of your business, your budget and your environmental commitment so that you can create beautiful, high quality marketing materials for your business – without breaking the bank.

Sustainability is good for business

Environmental sustainability is something we should all strive for, and being aware of your impact on the environment is not just good for the earth, it’s good for business too. Being eco-friendly in your business practises will make your business more appealing to both customers and investors; in fact, a recent study surveying more than 53,000 consumers found that 58% consider whether or not a business has strong environmental values before deciding where to buy. So it makes good business sense to consider an eco-friendly approach to your marketing materials.

Understanding environmental print options

Sustainable printing is not just about recycled vs non-recycled paper, there are other things to consider. Is the paper coming from sustainable forests? Which chemicals are used in the paper bleaching process? What are the environmental impacts of the companies which manufacture your paper products? There’s a lot to consider, but if you’re committed to reducing the carbon footprint of your business our friendly team can help you make the most environmental friendly choices for your budget.

For a more comprehensive look at our eco-friendly paper options you can see our eco paper guide, or you can give your local Kwik Kopy centre a call to talk through your options.

What products work well with eco-friendly paper?

It’s a common misconception that using sustainable paper products means a drop in quality, but there are some great options out there for environmental printing.

Magazines, Stationery & Point of Sale Materials

Mega Recycled paper is produced using 50% post consumer waste, is FCS certified and has ISO14001 accreditation. It’s high quality paper that’s perfect for magazines, stationery and point of sale materials.

Brochures, Catalogues & Direct Mail Marketing

For brochures, catalogues and direct mail marketing we recommend Evergreen which is a complete range of recycled and alternative fibre papers.

Annual Reports, Menus & Corporate Communications

Titan Plus Gloss paper is manufactured under ISO14001 and uses elemental chlorine free pulps from sustainable forests. Titan plus is a great choice for annual reports, menus and corporate communications.

Invitations, Greeting Cards & Product Packaging

For invitations, greeting cards and product packaging we recommend Printkote – an environmentally responsible manufacturer that uses pulp from well managed forests and has ISO14001 certification.
