Sustainable printing process

We prioritize, care and respect all the people involved in the printing and handling of our products. In support of this goal, we have developed a more transparent way of working focused on creating a safe and positive working environment within our operation. This requires a responsible management approach and the safe use of all production inputs, such as chemicals and the control of all production outputs and emissions.

In all printing techniques, we continuously aim to strongly reduce the use of solvent-based chemicals. It also means that during our printing process, we do not output any chemicals in the waste water systems, but transport these chemicals to a chemical processing company. Therefore we can re-use water during the printing process.

During screen and transfer printing, we do not throw ink away, but reuse it for new pantone colors. For 2021 we are planning to implement a full ink recycling system for all of our printing techniques.

By reusing inks or using inkless printing techniques, we strongly reduce our overall waste. We focus on reducing the number of misprints and the number of print quality claims as percentage of our total number of printed products.
