Same Day Printing is Environment Friendly?
While we don't have any official "Environmental Certification" from a recognised body as we are a small business and it is a cost impost that we don't see any benefit from as we live and breath sustainability.
We specialise in digital printing and only produce very small runs in general with minimum waste through overruns.
We believe we were one of the early adopters in our industry and in business in general in Melbourne of fitting out our building with Solar power and have been solar powered since January 2015 which was quite an investment for us at the time.
Dual blinds fitted to the all opening windows to reduce energy consumption as we have a lot of glass at the front of our building.
We have a CBUS computer controlled lighting and power management system in our building, LED Lighting throughout (again a big investment in 2014 when we fitted out our building when compared to the cost of LED lighting these days),
We installed a 100mm insulated blanket in our factory ceiling to help with temp management and reduce energy costs, we installed split systems throughout our premises rather than one large EVAC system, this allows us to only use the units necessary in the areas necessary.
We only use premium FSC (Sustainable Forestry) and Recycled stocks including Eco star.
We are religious about our recycling and paper waste management (segregated).
We run lean manufacturing processes and are constantly looking for ways to ensure we minimise any wastage.
We use "Greener Shrink and Bubble Wrap" if shrink or bubble wrap needs to be used, but generally we try not to use if only delivering locally, but are working on new solutions.
Unisex toilet, no urinal and a Water efficient toilet. We even only use paper towel, with a separate bin and have a little sign over it with the shake & Fold policy. ( http://shakeandfold.org/ )
We even let the dishes stack up so that we are not washing one or 2 cups with a sink load of water
With our perfect binding solution, we recently invested in a new binder that uses a new generation binding glue that helps to not only increase the strength of the bind over standard EVA and while not quite as strong as PUR Binding it does not have the downsides of PUR binding.
While it may be taboo in a way we generally only hire people who are within a 30 minute drive from us, this has dual benefits reduces carbon footprint and increase our team work life balance.

With water becoming more precious than ever before, we make saving water a priority. Our eco print processes require virtually no cleanup, Unisex toilet, no urinal and a Water efficient toilet, even let the dishes stack up so that we are not washing one or 2 cups with a sink load of water. Which saves of litres of water per day.
Same Day Printing cycle focus ensuring all waste (Water, Ink and Paper) is either reused or recycled. Print is important, but dispose of it thoughtfully!
VOC’s are off-gas from paints, finishes and other coatings, and also result from the use of cleaning products, air fresheners, personal care products and other materials brought into the building and at high concentrations can lead to irritation of the nose and pharynx, and have been associated with leukemia, childhood asthma and other respiratory disorders.
