What is FSC certified paper?
As we grow over the years more and more of our customers are requesting environmentally friendly papers. The largest and most prominent organization that ensures this conservation and responsible tree growth is the Forest Stewardship Council, or FSC. This council tracks and manages forests, milling, and the FSC Certified Paper manufacturing processes. Most FSC Certified Paper is created from a seedling to a sheet of paper. The FSC is there to guarantee that these procedures are long lasting and effective.
FSC certified paper can bring a natural look and feel to your printed material or marketing collateral. Many paper mills have begun to obtain their FSC certifications as they are finding the marketplace is demanding more eco-friendly printing alternatives. Neenah, Gilbert, and Fox River are just a few mills that have noticed the shift. The stock is also very easy to print on both commercial offset presses and digital presses.
The cost of an FSC initial review and re-certified annual audits is quite costly for FSC Certified printers. Unfortunately these costs are passed along to the customer. However, BizInk has come up with a printing process to allow FSC certified printing to be more affordable. You can order FSC Certified paper on all of your online orders at incredible prices. For most FSC Certified Printers the cost could increase by up to 20% from a non-certified recycled stock. Depending on the project, client, budget, and message being relayed, FSC Certified Paper stock may or may not be best choice.
