A guide to environmentally
sound printing options
about this pack
We provide a carefully selected range of recycled papers which we use
and recommend. This guide is intended to showcase these papers and
provide detailed information on them.

That’s why each sheet that makes up this booklet is printed on a
different selection from amongst our favourite recycled papers. Keep in
mind, though, that there are many more varieties, including many
specialty stocks.

Whatever your project, we feel confident that we can offer you an
environmentally friendly printing option that satisfies your budget and
your aesthetic tastes.

kingprint & the enviroment
D ed ic at e d t o s us ta i na b le a n d envi ron ment a ll y f r ien d ly
p r in ti ng p ra c t ic es .
At KingPrint managing a safe, environmentally friendly printing practice is our
foremost concern and we ensure that we maintain a standard of sustainability.
KingPrint has undertaken a commitment to environmental excellence.

We have so far completed the following:
 • Supplying, recommending and using a selection of recycled papers.
 • Using soy-based inks or vegetable oil based inks.
 • Ensuring that consumable items, such as toner cartridges, are recycled.
 • Ensuring that printing and photographic chemicals are chosen with care and
   thought and are disposed of correctly.
 • Minimising our water usage.
 • Avoiding the use of plastic packaging.
 • Re-using off-cuts of paper both for packaging and for proofing of jobs, as well as
   for local schools and kindergartens.
 • Re-using incoming boxes for outgoing packages.

Our efforts to minimise environmental harm are not ending there, though. We are
determined to improve further in the future, and to that end we plan to undertake the
following:
  • Design our new facility to minimise environmental impact as well as water and
    energy usage.
   • Comply with Australian Printing Industry Association's PIEP (Printing Industry
     Environmental Principles), including obtaining Green Stamp and ISO14001
     Environmental Management Systems certification.
  • Offset the carbon emissions of our commercial vehicles by supporting tree-
    planting initiatives.
  • Continue to provide support to projects that aim to lessen the impact our
    operations have on the environment.




                                          3
our environment policy
PAPER

It is our policy to:
  • Keep environmental and manufacturer's information on all of our paper stocks
     and make it available on request.
  • To stock papers that originate only from renewable forests (ie not from old-
     growth forests) and that are produced in accredited mills. We will reject papers
     that originate in areas of environmental concern.
  • To stock a good variety of recycled papers.
  • KingPrint has selected a number of "default" papers to use when the client has
     not specified any preference. It is our policy to choose default papers that we feel
     give the best environmental benefit. In most cases these are locally-produced
     partially-recycled papers, with the balance made up of certified plantation-grown
     timber.

INKS

The inks we use in our offset printing division are:
 • Soy or vegetable-oil based and
 • Free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

CHEMICALS

It is our policy:

 • To minimise the use of darkroom chemicals (developer, fixer) by using state of the
   art Computer-To-Plate (CTP) digital imaging technology in place of film based
   imagesetting where-ever possible. This process uses a laser instead of a chemical
   reaction to etch the printing plates used in offset printing, thus negating the
   need for chemicals.
 • Where chemicals are used, we will store them safely until they can be collected
   by EPA / City Council organised chemical collection.
 • We are building our new facility with secure storage for chemicals that will
   prevent any accidental spills or damage from escaping into the outside
   environment.




                                           4
ENERGY CONSERVATION

It is our policy:

 • To design our new facility to provide world-class energy efficiency, minimising
   the need for heating and air-conditioning.
 • To use a renewable energy supplier.
 • To switch off any equipment not currently in use.
 • To use only energy efficient lighting.
 • To consider the Energy Star-Rating when selecting any equipment or appliance.



WATER CONSERVATION

We recognise that it is especially important to use water wisely in Victoria's current
climate of drought and water shortages. We pledge not to use any printing technique
that requires excessive usage of water. While we don't currently use waterless printing,
we do use methods that use very little water. We also pledge to obey all water
restrictions.
Our new facility will take all of its water requirements from rainwater tanks, captured
from the roof of the facility. We estimate that rainwater will be able to provide all of our
water requirements.



WASTE & RECYCLING

We will implement a complete recycling program. This includes:
 • Paper recycling in the production, administration and design areas.

 • Ink and toner cartridge recycling. We have placed two recycling collection boxes
   for this purpose in our office, which are collected by Close The Loop / Planet Ark. A
   quarterly certificate is sent to us to advise that the cartridges have been recycled
   correctly, according to Planet Ark's Zero-To-Landfill (ZTF) policy.
 • Assisting our customers with recycling by advising of local recycling service
   providers who can assist with any business or event.




                                             5
We also make it our policy to:

 • Minimise waste by recommending conservative printing quantities.
 • Reuse paper offcuts and incoming boxes in our own packaging for outgoing
   products.
  • Re-use incoming shipping pallets for outgoing products.
 • Re-use wasted paper for producing proofs for proof-reading and for other internal
   printing.
 • Not to use plastic packaging, unless specified by the client, or an unaviodable
   requirement for protection during shipping.
 • Dispose of any potentially hazardous items, such as fluorescent tubes, in the
   manner recommended by the EPA or city council.


ENVIRONMENTAL ACCREDITATION

It is our intention to obtain Printing Industry Environmental Program (PIEP, or "Green
Stamp") accreditation as soon as possible.
We also intend to obtain ISO14001 Environmental Management Standards
accreditation as soon as possible.




                                          6
the digital advantage
You may well know that we have made a significant investment in
Digital Printing Technology. We are proud to say we are now the largest
Digital Print company in Regional Victoria.

So what are the advantages of Digital Printing?

  • Affordable Short Run Colour - Do away with obsolete printed
    material.

 • Fast Turnaround.

 • Eliminate wastage - Print only what you need.

 • Customise and Personalise your print.

 • ... and the quality is outstanding.


Of course, we're still the experts in conventional - or "offset" - printing,
which uses aluminium plates to print the image - it takes longer, but
can achieve lower cost especially for large volumes.

So just remember, if you want it fast ‘Go Digital’. If you’ve got time and
you want thousands of copies ‘Go Offset’. Either way, we will provide the
same high standards of quality.
