ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY & SUSTAINABILITY FAQ
Do you use soy inks & recycled paper?
Since 2002 we have exclusively used soy based inks and water
based coatings for all our work. Somewhat more expensive than standard
(petroleum) based ink – but better for the environment! We always encourage
printing on recycled paper when possible. Often it does NOT costmore than
regular paper and there are hundreds of choices.
What have you done about your “carbon footprint”
Currently our power is 75% wind and 25% small hydroelectric
under our utilities “green” power choice plan. We are currently on a waiting
list to purchase the upcoming electric delivery vehicle coming from Ford Motor
Company for our local deliveries
What about FSC & SFI certification?
We support both these organizations and feel that sound
environmental policies and sustainability is vital. Delta is currently FSC
certifed and is in the process of getting SFI certification. All stock used in
our Express Printing program is SFI certified and both SFI and FSC paper is
available in our Custom Printing program.
Why do we use Aqueous coating?
This is a water based coating that has zero pollution
causing VOC's (volatile organic compounds) and puts a soft sheen on the final
product. It protects and can prevent scuffing and fingerprinting. As the name
suggests - it is mostly water and poses no health hazards to our employees or
