We are chain of custody Tri-Certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®), the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®), and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC®) programs.
However, in some countries as much as 80% of the timber is harvested illegally, often involving the violation of human rights and destruction of protected forests. A key factor behind the threats faced by natural forests is the perception by many societies that they lack economic value. The extraordinary social and environmental value of forests in comparison to other land uses is often not considered. In other words, forests are often converted to other land uses which lack many of the social and environmental values of forest but promise higher economic returns.
The use of certified products supports and ensures the forests are managed with the highest social and environmental criteria available. Your environmental choice to specify certified paper has a direct and permanent positive impact on the world’s forests and the people living from, in and around the forest. Using certified paper and printing the certified logo is an effective way to let businesses recognize your environmental responsible practices.

Soybean oil comes from a renewable source: soybeans. Soybean agriculture uses only 0.5 percent of the total energy needed to produce soy ink. Almost half of all soybeans produced in America needs no irrigation. As soybeans are growing they temporarily remove damaging carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the atmosphere …

Much of the antiquated equipment from American printing firms end up in manufacturing plants outside our market after it’s retired from production. Often, the overall product quality and/or delivery times from overseas factories is noticeably less compared to products manufactured right here in America. Most consumers never have the opportunity to tour the facilities of printing plants outside the USA before sending print manufacturing out of the country. Consequently, there can be a disappointment once the project arrives. Additionally, many foreign labor standards allow unsafe worker conditions and do not conform to the environmentally sound practices of the USA, and such organizations as SFI, FSC and PEFC. Our state-of-the-art production facilities are certified GREEN and inspected regularly to ensure on-going compliance, which provides safe and environmentally friendly conditions that benefit workers and customers, while complying to high quality standards such as G7 Master certification and SWOP.
When we buy American, we support not only American manufacturers but also American workers, safe working conditions, and fair labor laws, while keeping the American economy growing right here at home! We are extremely proud of the cleanliness, quality and safe manufacturing practices established in all of our production facilities, and welcome the opportunity to have you in for a tour. Please contact your Interprint Representative today to schedule tour dates and times.
