When it comes to commercial printing, a few small steps can go a long way toward minimizing the impact your printed piece has on the environment:
2. Go with an aqueous coating instead of one of the traditional UV coatings or laminates. Water-based aqueous coatings provide the same resistance against scratches as other coatings, but without the harmful impact on the environment.
3. Ask for a "soft proof" instead of a traditional proof. You'll save yourself time and money while reducing the use of energy and materials used to create a hard proof.
4. Recycle outdated and unused print materials, and encourage your audience and associates to do so, too.
