Eco Friendly Printing at TigerPress

TigerPress recognizes that our planet is our most valuable resource. Our green printing initiatives integrate environmental protection and sustainability into our core business mission. As an FSC® Certified (Forest Stewardship Council®) printer, we participate in a Chain-of-Custody system which insures paper products are manufactured in a responsible manner from responsibly managed forests.

Enviromental Benefits of Soy Based Ink:

  • Soy inks create rich, vivid color that "pop" off the page
  • Soy inks helps prevent pollution (low in VOC's, or Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • Soy inks are a safe, sustainable, and renewable resource
  • Soy inks promotes paper recycling (they are more easily stripped from paper during the de-inking / recycling process than petroleum inks)
  • Soy inks creates less waste on press (they remain more stable throughout the printing process so there are fewer 'rejects’ at the end of the print run)

Reducing our 'Footprint'

Since 1985, TigerPress has been employing the following tactics and strategies to assure environmentally responsible printing practices:

  • Reduction of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and plant emissions
  • Recycling solvents: Minimization of hazardous waste ink and solvents through a program of recycling and conservation
  • Press wetting agents based on non-toxic citric acid and gum arabic, which is entirely non-polluting
  • Significantly reduced paper waste in printing and binding operations through greater efficiency and changes in equipment
  • Recycling of all suitable paper waste from the production process, including corrugated paper and cardboard
  • Recycling of wood products, such as pallets and off-cuts
  • Metal recycling including all aluminum plating materials
