Our approach

We relentlessly examine every part of our business to make it greener – from the large machinery to the seat covers in the bathroom. (Yes, even those are made from recycled paper.)

For offset printing, it starts with how we create the plates. (For digital, we skip this step.)

  • Non-toxic processing fluids
  • Recyclable aluminum plates

02. Hit "Print"

Switching to top-of-the-line technology, we reduced our waste significantly.

Our workplace Thoughtfully redesigned

Keeping it cool

Printing presses produce a lot of heat. We only heat 10% of our facility and our breezy Richmond, CA location means no need for energy-hogging AC.

Remodeling responsibly

We uncovered the windows and raised the ceilings to increase natural light and reduce overall energy usage.

Going carbon neutral

We have completely offset our energy usage with renewable energy credits from a local marine energy company.
