Jolla, CA -- Have you noticed how much printing there is all around
you? Everything is printed, from the letters on the keyboard of
your computer, the news papers and magazines that you read on
a daily basis, business cards, flyers, brochures, money and checks,
your clothing and its tags, posters and advertisements on the
street a all the way to that lovely pattern on your kitchen floor.
The list is endless! Eco-Friendly printing can make all of those
printing is achieved by using Green Certified substrates (such
as paper and other materials) which either comes from tree farms
(trees grown for the sole purpose of producing paper) or has a
high content of recycled material. In addition, one of the most
important components is soy based inks, which are 100% organic.
With our modern technology, soy based inks can achieve the same
color intensity, durability and brightness than conventional VOC
releasing (volatile organic compound) inks which are solvent or
oil based. Or even worse, Chinese printing, their inks have a
high content of lead. Many U.S. magazine companies are now printing
in China to save money, there is nothing wrong with saving a few
bucks, right? Well, the problem is that we are killing the planet
by using conventional printing and also our selves. Think about
it, when you hold a magazine in your hands and you flip through
it, how many times do you take your index finger to your mouth
to get some moisture, so that the pages stick better and you can
keep flipping through the magazine? Every time you do so, you
are eating lead! On top of that, the printing industry employs
more people in the U.S. than the car manufacturing industry, and
now it is being outsourced to China.
While it is more expensive for printing companies to produce Eco-Fiendly
products, the benefits of doing so are significant, and ultimately
responsibility is not just good for our planet, but good for us
as well. Today in the U.S., there are a few companies out there
that will absorb this overhead cost and print "Green"
at no extra cost to the consumer. A great example of such a company
is Best Press, based out of La Jolla, CA.,
http://www.BestPressOnline.us. Best Press, not only does it
create American jobs, but it gives businesses, corporations and
consumers the option to print Green at no extra cost. Their pricing
is extremely reasonable, and in most cases below industry average.
So if you are in need of some business cards, flyers or any other
printing for your self or your business or corporation, look no
further than an environmentally conscious company, your children
will be glad you did so!
