Sustainable print services

Our full-service copies are printed on 50% post-consumer recycled paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC), which means the paper meets stringent standards to responsibly manage and protect forests.

You can request double-sided copies and/or request our 100% recycled content paper, also FSC certified.
