Green Printing With Lake Printing

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 have 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.
Recycling

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!

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 just 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.
