Environmental Actions

Thanks CJ and Aless @artgoesmedia for an awesome job on this video!

"We take pride in being sustainable"

Following are some of the environmental actions we’ve taken to help preserve our mother earth...

DIGITAL:

Our new digital Hi-speed presses, use only 1 or 2 sheets for make ready. They monitor color on every sheet to ensure quality and consistency while reducing waste. They use wax based toner and no liquid chemical solutions that have to be cleaned or drained which is just one more step in keeping our environment clean.

OFFSET:

We use vegetable based organic pigmented inks, for all of our traditional offset printed jobs.

Chemical FREE direct-to-plate technology. This process uses lasers to burn your image directly onto the plate material which keeps toxic chemicals, like those used in most plate-setters and film-setters, from being released into the environment. This also increases the quality of the final product and reduces the turnaround time on any of our traditional offset printing jobs. It's water less too, as stated in the above video.

Completely recycled wash water & ink. All of our rags and uniforms are washed at a state-of-the-art facility which uses a process that recycles the dirty wash water and detergents. Even the air is filtered on it’s way out of the facility. Our waste ink is recycled and used to produce thermal energy in a process that releases zero pollutants into our environment.

BINDERY:

We re-use all wrapping and boxes. Any wrapping or boxes we receive from our vendors is collected and reused to pack and ship our own products.

We’ll keep adding more as we get more green each day!

Why settle for just a first impression? For more than 60 years we have used papers to make an elegant first impression. DSJ has expanded its Digital and Offset line to include more weights, colors, textures, and patterns that are both recycled and FSC certified. Because we strive to use papers that are made with post-consumer recycled waste and non-polluting wind generated electricity, you’ll be making a positive impression on the environment, as well as your customers.

To make good use of our sustainable services just place your order now. If you're not ready to order but have an idea, you can request an estimate or contact us so we can contact you to discuss it.

If you work for a large corporation that places orders frequently, we have a system that reduces costs and lead times and sustainably streamlines the ordering process! Learn more about it here.
