At budgetfolders.co.uk, we care for the environment in every way possible whilst maintaining a cost-effective price structure to market your business or service:
So you can reduce your environmental footprint AND cut your costs when you order Folders or printed Wallets from us!
Paper and Toner/Ink:
We use sustainable resources including paper, inks and toners that do little or no harm when harvested or disposed of. And you can choose to have items printed on fully recycled grey board and parcel board (see the Greentours Wallets picture) and we could also print using black only ink as shown. This saves on cost and resources for maximum sustainability.
The majority of our paper stocks are sourced through Fedrigoni. This major top-end paper producer pays full attention to the effect that they have on the environment: From using materials sourced exclusively from suppliers with responsible environmental policies, the manufacturing of card stocks at their production facilities (which are all ISO 14001 Certified), to their continued efforts to increase their range of FSC certified papers, they are committed to maintaining a healthy planet. They also offer carbon balancing on a wide range of paper stocks.
More info, see Roger Wilson’s video on this at http://www.fedrigonipapers.com/node/3721
All other paper and card suppliers we use are FSC Certified.
And why not cut costs by using our self-assembly folders (just like the Green Tours Wallet shown here) and this removes another part of the manufacturing process in our factory because, in just a few seconds, you’re assembling the wallets or folders yourself!
Machines and Print Finishing:
We use Xerox digital print machines for short and medium print runs. Xerox is a company dedicated to reducing their total Carbon and Environmental Footprint, they are dedicated to creating machines that use less electrical power (when fusing toners), less wastage and more recycling (with re-usable cartridges and other components) with every new range of equipment they produce (meeting Energy Star requirements), along with continuous improvements to cleaner manufacturing processes and minimising the use of hazardous chemicals in their machines and consumables,
With longer runs, litho print machines create economy of scale, and paper/card wastage on a modern litho press is minimal in comparison to older machines. Any paper wastage in the print industry is recycled by all responsible print businesses.
If you have any other questions about the environmental impact that our printed folders and wallets have, or any other questions about folder printing and sustainability, please don’t hesitate to call 01536 529911 or email [email protected]
