Eco-Friendly Printing

At Print-Tech, Inc., we strive to reduce our energy consumption, pollution and waste by establishing efficient and green business practices. Making informed decisions on sustainable materials and processes, allows Print-Tech, Inc., and our customers, to minimize the impact on our environment.

100% of the electricity we use is offset by renewable energy credits, and we are a Partner in U.S. Environmental Protection Agency "EPA Green Power Partnership”. Print-Tech, Inc. is a member of Washtenaw County’s Waste Knot Program and was a charter member of the Great Lakes Printing Project.

Our commitment toward sustainable printing doesn't end with our earth friendly chemicals, and our large selection of FSC Certified & recycled papers. We strive to reduce our carbon footprint in everything we do.  Our commitment to the environment is embodied in three core principles: Product, Process and Plant.

            Product - Job Design, input materials and use of the finished job are considered for minimal impact to the environment

            Process - Choosing the manufacturing process that allows the most efficient use of manufacturing resources — Digital, Offset or Wide Format Ink Jet

            Plant - Continually, upgrading our facility for energy efficiency, and waste minimization.
