At Southport Printing Co., we care about the world that we live in and place a strong emphasis on providing high quality print work with minimum impact on the environment.
From the paper, toner and inks that we use through to the engineering of equipment, Southport Printing Co. strives to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Use of Soy-Based Ink
Soy-based ink, as the name suggests, is made from soybeans. Soy-based ink is more environmentally friendly than traditional ink as soy-based inks do not use petrochemical oils and paper printed with soy-based ink is easier to recycle.
In addition to being better for the environment, soy-based ink produces a more accurate representation of the colour profiles selected in your digital file.
Use of FSC Certified Paper
FSC certified paper is paper that has been harvested in a responsible manner. FSC is an acronym for the Forest Stewardship Council, which is an independent, not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation that works to promote the environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests.
In addition to sourcing soy-based ink and FSC certified paper, Southport Printing Co. recycles all toner cartridges and paper waste from the factory.
