What are the environmental benefits of printing with UV ink?
UV cured ink allows us to print without toxins because there are no solvents; solvents which contain VOC toxins that need to evaporate off and would otherwise be dispersed into the air. There is less wastage during the printing process. Additionally UV inks are weather resistant and last a long time.
What is this TPU your cases are made of?
Our cases are made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) which is a hybrid of hard plastic and soft silicone. The production of TPU is eco-friendly - it can solve VOC emissions and is recyclable. It is non-toxic, a non-plasticizer, and is degradable.
Why cork coasters?
Cork is regarded as an environmentally friendly product because the cork tree is not cut down; only the bark is harvested. It is a highly renewable and eco-friendly resource that can be recycled or biodegraded.
What other steps to you take to be a greener company?
We print our items to order. This means less waste from unsold items. If there is an issue with designs or print quality, it can be caught and fixed immediately. Whenever possible we use recycled or recyclable packaging and minimize the frills to keep pricing low. We purchase our blanks locally whenever possible, supporting our local economy and keeping carbon emissions low.
