At Indie Printing Inc., “BEING GREEN” is far MORE THAN JUST INK AND PAPER. It would be unwise for us to simply abide by our industry's regulations. More importantly, we implement our own PERSONAL STANDARDS in order to satisfy our representation of being an ECO-CONSCIOUS PRINTING company.
With that said, Indie printing has access to over 250 types of paper types, weights and stocks.
All too often you hear the term “recycled paper” coming from “green printers.” The truth of the mater is that it is much more complex than that. Most “eco-friendly” printing companies throw the term “printed on recycled paper” around in order to pacify the consumer. We realize there is much information to be passed on, and see an opportunity to educate both our customers and employees.
