Why Print Green?

1. To reduce carbon output in printing production by being environmentally responsible and making good choices for the planet. If using our handmade seed papers you actually reverse your carbon footprint.

2. We choose companies that have green printing standards. Such as chemical free inks, recycling of all recyclables, and solar or hydro power.

Please support our drive for a greener tomorrow.

Print Specs for Offset Image and Type on Lotka paper

Here is a list of things to help the image and type.

1. Whenever possible use InDesign or illustrator to create files. We can then go in and adjust everything to make it print better.

2. Use a font that has less drop-off to begin with.

3. Whenever possible use 100% black or dark colors for the font.

4. Printing type in 4 color on this stock will always be a trick, so the more cyan and black in the color build for the type is a plus.

5. Don't screen type.

6. Try to use images that are light or with small amount of coverage – design with the stock in mind.

Custom Seeded Favor Boxes
Lotka is made in the highlands of Nepal by rural craftspeople.

The Daphne bush is farmed and harvested from 3-4 year old plants that are cut down and stripped of their bark to become the raw material from which the sheets are formed. The plant is not destroyed when cut down, it regenerates from the root. The cane like stick, once it's bark is removed is dried and used to heat the villagers homes and to provide cooking fuel for meals and also for the production of the paper. All of the water used in the paper production is reclaimed and reused. The bark is beaten by hand and boiled to break it down to a pulp (where it is mixed in with recycled pulp and paper scrap collected from the card and envelope manufacturing process) that is then pored into screens to form the sheets. These sheets are then dried in the sun. The whole process is not only earth friendly but also provides a large community with a healthy enterprise.

Below is some information on our color printer Ross Printing:
Our Green Philosophy is to minimize volatile organic compounds (VOC) from entering the atmosphere and recycle as much as possible to minimize our footprint in the environment.

Here are some initiatives we've put in place to demonstrate our Philosophy:

34 tons of waste paper recycled annually, along with every wooden pallet and corrugated container.

Internally designed an oil recovery system so that 100% of our used oil is filtered down to a purer oil after recycling than when the oil is new.

We use 18% soy based ink with lower VOC content than standard inks and use only alcohol free press wash in our Litho department

Converted our roofing material from black to white which decreased energy use by approximately 15%

Installed a chemical-less, water based platesetter for our Flexo department and have totally eliminated film in all our processes.

Ross Printing has reduced VOC output by over 50% in less than two years!

They use 100% Wind Energy
