Green Printing Practices for Our Print Company

Printing is a practice that is used in almost every office space all over the world, and it involves electricity, ink, and paper. All of these can make a huge impact on the planet, and that's why Lake Printing has become a Green Certified Printer. We care about protecting this planet, but we also realize that you need professional print products just as much as ever, so we've found a great compromise. Here are a few reasons why we believe in green printing, and how our shop protects the earth one sheet of paper at a time.

It's in the Ink

At Lake Printing we use green printing practices from beginning to end, so it's no surprise that even our ink is eco-friendly. We use soy ink instead of petroleum based ink not just because it's better for the earth, but it can also produce brighter, more vibrant colors. This means that the end result is safe for the earth and visually appealing. It can also be more cost effective than other oil-based inks.


This is generally one of the first things that come to mind when you think of ways to be more eco-friendly. Recycling all of our waste paper, cardboard, used printing plates, solvents and used toner cartridges means that instead of these items going straight to a landfill, they are re-purposed and re-used. We also use recycled paper whenever possible. Some projects need to have new paper, but if we have the choice of going the green route, we always do. You can never go wrong with recycling!

Using Washable Items

Paper towels are a huge resource, but they are also extremely wasteful from an eco-friendly perspective. From beginning to end the process to make them uses more resources than you would imagine, like oil, water and of course, trees. Paper towels also end up in the landfills when they are used, and while they will biodegrade eventually, it takes at least one year to do so. Unfortunately, paper towels aren't just made from trees, and any chemicals in them are also degrading into our earth. This is why Lake Printing makes it a point to use washable shop towels in the production area instead of disposable. In this way, we are able to save hundreds of trees, but also save tons of space in the landfills just with this one eco-friendly choice.

Eco-friendly Proofs

As the best printing company at the Lake of the Ozarks, one of the most important parts of our business is sending proofs to our clients, while many companies will show printed proofs, we have made the choice to send customers PDF proofs via email whenever possible. This saves on the amount of paper and ink that is wasted on a proof so we can use it for the actual print piece. By choosing to accept PDF proofs, you are helping us help the environment. If you can opt for the PDF or virtual proof, it's always best to do so.

Saving the Earth One Piece of Paper at a Time

At Lake Printing, we take green printing seriously, and that's why we've taken specific measures to create an eco-friendly workflow. While green printing is important to us, your satisfaction is also important, which is why we only use the best products so you have the highest satisfaction in our products. If you're ready to start saving the planet while still receiving the best print products, visit our website to learn more!

Choosing the Best Print Products for Your Business

When it comes to choosing the best products for your business, sometimes it can seem overwhelming - the choices are endless. At Lake Printing, we want to help you take the hassle out of making the right decision, and help you make great impressions with every print piece you hand out. No matter what your company needs, we are here to help with your printing and promotional products at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are a few ways you can choose the best product for your company in the midst of so many choices.

Why Are You Promoting?

Determining the "why" of your promotion will help you decide which type of print product will be the best for you. If you need a print product because you want to get more information out about your company in an easy and concise way, a business card could be a very good option for you. If your business wants to provide detailed information about their services, products or mission, you may want to consider a pamphlet. These give you the freedom to include a lot of information without cramming too much into a small space. If you need a LOT of people to see your information, and you need something that works well in different environments, a banner can be a great way to promote your company. It can stand up to the heat, snow, rain, cold, and more, so you won't have to worry about it falling apart.

Defining the "why" of your print product can help you move in the direction of deciding what you need.

What Are You Promoting?

Think about what you are wanting to promote. Do you need to let people know about an event you're hosting, a product that has just hit the shelves, or a brand new feature of your company? Narrowing down your focus can help you decide what would be better for your company. If you're hosting an event, a full color laminated flyer could be a practical option for you. You can grab the eye of your customers in passing, and then provide them the details so they know where, when and why to show up. If you have a new product in your store, a banner can easily showcase this new product, and grab attention from a far distance. If you are promoting a new service for your company, like online ordering, you can take advantage of our great mailing options. We can help you create a postcard that will effectively show what you need to, and then mail it out to a customized list of people who will benefit most from your information.

How Many People Do You Want to Reach?

Finally, realizing how many people you need to reach can make a difference in the type of product you're choosing. If you just want to make connections one-on-one, shake hands, remember faces and names, a business card is a personal way to introduce yourself and get out information about your company. Whereas, if you want to reach thousands of people, a customized mailing could be a better choice for you.

Customized Print Products

Choosing a print product for your company can be a very important decision, but doesn't mean it has to be hard. At Lake Printing, we can help you find the best product for your company, while also helping you meet specific needs and staying within your budget. If you're ready to find the best product for you and your company, visit our website, or give us a call at 573-346-0600 today!
