Printing: technology and Decisions
June 17th, 2015 1:17 PM
How many times have you asked yourself which process is best for this project? The great thing about today is that you have many choices from which to choose. You have traditional offset and digital in all different flavors. Some processes are best for short runs or long runs and some are best for special paper stocks. The digital platter is large with many variations from which to choose. But which is best for my job or is offset the way I should proceed? How do I get the best job with the quality and value I need? Unless you are an experienced print specialist the decisions you make may be a waste of money and time. So what are the solutions, consult someone with experience and knowledge to furnish you with the services you need. That can be a company you have worked with before but are they trying to keep the work in their plant or will they seek a service that has equipment and personnel to give you the best quality and service for the specific project you are now preparing. All printers are not equal. Some are better at certain types of work than others. Why not choose a company that allows you to know where the best fit for your project is and will get you the best quality, price and value available. Why not choose a company that specializes in finding the right solution by putting the best people and equipment on the production of your next project.

Printing: Print Grows Trees

With the renewed emphasis on environmental stewardship many have assumed, incorrectly, that printing has a negative impact on the sustainability of forests. A new educational campaign, however, is spreading the word that "Print Grows Trees" by illustrating how a vibrant print industry is the critical link to making sure private woodland owners continue to use their land for the development of forests, instead of selling the land to industries that may negatively impact our fragile ecosystem.
"In a world bombarded by electronic images and media, many forget the value of print to our society. It contributes in economic, social and environmental ways that have not been clearly represented to the public. ’Print Grows Trees’ concentrates on the environmental, because the misconception that if we stop using print we’ll save trees, has had a critical impact on not only the print industry, but also on the private landowners who are the keepers of America’s trees. We just want people to make their communications’ decisions based on facts."Learn more about how the printing industry is making a significant contribution to the sustainability of forests and protecting woodlands from clear-cutting and conversion to environmentally irresponsible uses at the Print Grows Trees website.
