Tri Panda, Sample of Bamboo Paper Stock

14 Jul

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of Proforma Simonetta Freelance, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

In this short video Craig from Independent Printing shows off their new bamboo blend print stock. This was taken at the Proforma 2009 convention so I did get a chance to touch and feel this paper. You cannot tell that this is a bamboo blend. It looks and feels and acts like “paper” and seems suitable for any print job.

Another thing to mention about Independent Printing is that their offices and press are now powered by renewable resources. Indeed they have created their own symbol to denote their products are printed with clean energy which they can add to any project coming out of their shop.

Really, when talking about green printing using green resources I think Independent Printing is quickly taking the lead position in our industry. Any custom or standard job, any size, they have the Ecopreneurist covered.

You can read a lot more about Independent Printing’s commitment to eco-friendly printing on their website.

Independent is a trade only printer so if you are interested in these items to promote your own business contact your local promotional items vendor or email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

If you are in the trade then the guy to talk to at their office is Jim Fairbairn. A general overview of their standard eco items can be seen here.

    Bamboo seems like a versatile material that is even being used as a fabric in clothing. Let’s hope alternative sources like bamboo can be used to eliminate cutting down our beautiful forests.

    This is really great, I hope all paper products are made from bamboo and recycled paper some day.
