Green printing in
Is Digital printing Environmentally friendly?
Digital printing is not just environmentally
friendly, but it has also proven to be less expensive overall, for short run projects that were four color for
sizes under 14 x 20 inches as reported in a “Printing Green” article by Dynamic Graphics. Most ultra modern Digital presses like the Xerox DC8000 uses a lot of recycled
energy and the inks used are non-toxic.
Also, there is a significant reduction in
paper consumption when you use a modern digital press like the DC8000.
The amount of paper consumption can be reduced by as much as 50 percent, since you do not ‘waste’ paper while
setting up the press and doing trial runs or even during a final hard copy ‘color proofing’
Thus by cutting down drastically on the raw
materials needed for the printing process, modern digital presses saves the customer money as there is much less
product waste. You can further reduce your carbon footprint by using
modern recycled papers that go well with Digital printing.
Every media has an impact on the environment,
including email marketing that contributes to 33 Billion Kilowatts
hours of energy use every year. Whereas Printing has a one-time carbon
footprint, Electronic media generates an environment footprint each time an email is accessed on a smartphone or a
PC is turned on.
