Award winning eco brochure

This month we picked up a top gong at The Print & Design Awards 2012 for our stove brochure (printed by eco printhouse Crossprint Ltd). Our Charnwood brochure won the category of ‘Best use of recycled paper’ with the ceremony taking place aboard the Silver Sturgeon on the river Thames with a crew of around 200 UK print industry delegates.

Part of our company ethos has always included buying from local UK based suppliers, supporting British manufacturing and using eco-friendly materials where possible. Crossprint Ltd is virtually a stones throw away from Charnwood HQ so it makes perfect sense to use them to print our literature (we’ve been using them since we began in 1972!)

So for those with an environmental conscience here are a few eco facts about our brochure:

The paper is manufactured specifically to size reducing waste by 24%

It is printed using Crossprint’s state of the art Ryobi B2 755 press that uses 40% less power than others on the market – and the press is also powered almost entirely by solar!

We use 100% recycled paper and print using vegetable based inks. Because of the paper type used Crossprint are able to reduce ink usage by 7%

So altogether a greener, leaner award winning brochure. Obtain your free copy here or for an even more environmental read click here!
