Silicon Valley Print Shop Goes Green with Recycled Stock Paper.

Woman-owned commercial printer, JP Graphics, Santa Clara, Calif., USA, has upped their commitment to environmentally friendly print practices by printing all new orders on recycled paper products.

As of July 1, 2018, all print papers, coated stocks, and board stocks contain recycled paper. Specialty orders can be placed for non-recycled products; however, the JP Graphics standard is green.

"Our mission is to print products that customers love, while reducing our carbon footprint," stated Joan Escover, president of JP Graphics. "Our shop is powered by solar, and we've always offered recycled paper as an option. The move to all recycled paper as a default, is a logical next step in our commitment to sustainable, environmentally friendly products and services."

In addition to all recycled papers, JP Graphics has implemented chemical free process-less plates, which require less water, less energy, and generate less waste. They also use environmentally friendly low/no VOC (volatile organic compound) vegetable and soy inks, which improve indoor air quality and reduce harmful carcinogens.

Founded by Joan Escover in 1998, JP Graphics is an environmentally friendly commercial print shop located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Their team holds a G7 Master Printer Certification and specializes in environmentally friendly print processes.

JP Graphics has the machines and technology to print everything in house; from posters and signage to folders and die-cut boxes. Its clients range from Fortune 500 companies, to small businesses and individual consumers, and they have graphic designers, and a bindery department on staff to assist with print campaigns, packaging, and catalogs.

Their 36,000 sq. ft. print shop and office building has been powered by solar since 2008, and they recycle all leftover paper, packaging, ink, cartridges, and pre-consumer waste to ensure every print project not only looks amazing but is environmentally friendly too.
