We're On Silver

Posted by Scott on 19 February 2015

IMG envsilver1I am proud to announce our Enviro-mark Silver Certification. Pamela our Enviro-mark and health and safety champion has been working hard getting everything in order and progressing. It can be both rewarding and challenging as we move through each phase of development. When you start digging into many of your own practices with an open minded approach, it's amazing the changes that can be made, and the positive outcomes that come with them. Often you find some things are done the way they are cause that's the way we always did them. Not cause it's better.

Loving the latex!

Posted by Scott on 3 September 2014

IMG Latex360aThere have been a few exciting changes happening over the last couple of months. In our drive to provide better quality and more sustainable printing, we’ve added two brand new shiney printers, HP Latex 360’s to be precise. They're pretty cool… HP latex technology provides all the durability qualities of solvent inks (the mainstay ink for tough durable prints), but without all the environmental nasties the solvent inks provide as a trade off for toughness. Better still, the latex system is odourless and far more reliable than the solvent systems we have owned in the past. The printers are more consistent with quality output and less prone to nozzle blockage issues we suffered in the past with our solvent printers.

Greening Digital Printing

Posted by Scott on 15 June 2011

HP Scitex LX850 Latex ink Printer
We'd like to introduce a recent addition to our line-up. HP in recent years have been pushing more environmentally conscious large format digital printing solutions. One of their biggest drives has been latex ink printers. Surprise surprise, the picture above happens to be one. The environment is not exactly being kind to us at the moment here in Christchurch, but we are still looking to improve our stance towards it. The HP Scitex LX850 uses waterbased latex ink, yet the finished prints are comparable to mild and eco solvent as far as scratch reststance and durability goes. It's our second latex machine. Without boring you to death with details, we get high resolution prints (truly stunning), with brilliant colour, durable for indoor and outdoor use including vehicles and then add to that the fact it does a great job on fabrics which is enhanced by it's ability to image on material up to to 3.2 metres wide (that's billboard size!!!).

New Recycling Programmes

Posted by Scott on 1 June 2011

Recycle image
We are pleased to announce new additions to our recycling systems. We are always looking to improve our impact on the environment and be more responsible in the way we operate. We have put in place two new systems which have had a huge impact on the quanity of waste we send to the landfill. We've been looking for a partner here in Christchurch for 3 years to recycle our PVC banner and Yupo offcuts. Thanks to Aarque Graphics and BJ Ball Papers, it's now possible. Any of the banners and posters we produce for you using Yupo or Starflex can be returned to us for recycling too. These two new additions add to our existing cardboard, paper, waste solvent and coreflute recycling.
