Why Green Printing Processes Matter

In a day and age where many are trying to make an impact on the earth through their daily living habits - Lake Printing is no different. We have changed the way we work in the past few years, so that we are using products can be recycled and conserving on products that can't. Have you ever wondered why green print processes matter and make a difference? Here are a few really good reasons:

You Aren't Just Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

While many individuals choose to go green for the sake of reducing the impact they leave on the earth, in the past it also came with a price to pay. Either it was literally a higher price, or you weren't getting as high of quality in your product - that's not how it is any more! When you choose to go with recycled paper or soy ink, you are actually getting a very high quality product that matches if not exceeds the former, while still making a great impact.

It's Not Just About the Earth

While we do gain a sense of satisfaction from knowing that we're making an impact on the earth through our printing practices, there are other great reasons for changes the way printing has been done. In the past, there have been many toxic materials used in printing, such as silver, lead, chromium, cadmium, toluene, chloroform, methylene chloride, barium-based pigments and acrylic copolymers. As if that isn't bad enough, chlorine bleaching of paper could be linked ot cancer-causing water pollutants, and waste inks and solvents are ususally considered a hazardous material. We aren't just saving the earth through changing our processes, we're improving the quality of life for our employees and even their families.

Real Ways Lake Printing Makes An Impact

It's fine to talk about reasons that green printing is important, but it's only once you start making the change that it really becomes valuable. Here are jsut a few ways that Lake Printing is making an impact on the lives of our employees and the earth that we live on, while still providing you with quality print products at the Lake of the Ozarks.

  • Using soy ink instead of petroleum based ink. Using alcohol-free press solutions.
  • Recycling all wastepaper, cardboard, used printing plates, solvents, and used toner cartridges.
  • Using recycled paper whenever possible.
  • Creating printing plates with computer-to-plate technology.
  • Using washable shop towels in production area instead of disposable.
  • Sending customer proofs as PDF format via email whenever possible.
  • Re-using boxes and packing material received in incoming shipments to package outgoing deliveries.

Certified Green Print Company

The Lake Printing Company is proud to be FSC and SFI certified! Since paper comes from forests and forests provide us with clean water, fresh air, and even combats global warming, it is very important to protect them. Because of that, we offer you paper that has been certified to be kinder to the environment, as well as changing our ink and press solutions. When one company makes a change, it can start a ripple effect.

Services at Lake Printing

Graphic Design - no print project would be complete without a gorgeous design. While it can be easy to downplay the vital importance of the design of your print piece - it's actually invaluable. Our team can create the perfect piece for you, using your suggestions and their experience.

Printing - pamphlets, business cards, brochures, you name it. Our printing process allows you to have the freedom to create exactly what you need, and get it on paper in a professional and beautiful manner. Do you need business cards at the Lake of the Ozarks? We can help!

Binding - without the right binding,
your project will lack not only the correct look but also practicality. If you try to put a textbook that will be used on a frequent basis in a perfect binding, you will find that it falls apart more frequently. While putting a romance novel in a spiral binding would probably lack the finished look you were going for, and make it a little uncomfortable to read.

Mailing - not only can we create your perfect print piece, we can then mail it out to all of your clients. If you want to send out postcards, brochures, or magazines, we are the perfect choice for you.

Promotional Products - the effectiveness in a promotional products can seem hard to measure, but it's vitally important when you want people to become familiar with your logo, brand, and business.

Full Color Vinyl Banners  - blocky, boring banners of the past are just that - in the past. Now we can create a full color banner that accurately depicts what you need on your banner in an font, color, or style.

UV Coating (gloss, dull, or soft touch) - a print piece can look great, but it can look better with a UV coating. It makes your colors look richer and your design even more amazing.

Variable Data - we have found great success with variable data printing, especially with casinos. The reason it's so great is that you can customize each print piece for the person that it will be delivered to.

Die Cutting - do you need a special print piece that has a an odd shape? Die cutting allows you the flexibility of creating exactly what you need without the extra cost you'll find at some online print companies.

We work with the local businesses, and even businesses around the country to help them achieve their printing goals.
