Sustainable Printing

Eco-friendly Printing Company

We are committed through innovation to ensure that future generations can enjoy the same quality of life as we enjoy. Gibson Printing believes that sustainability is very important and we're always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.


Commercial Printing Waste

The printing industry as a whole is becoming more green but some printing companies won't make green printing choices in sourcing paper and ink or the type of equipment they use. We use vegetable based inks and environmentally friendly toners.

Using a digital press lessens CO2 emissions, energy consumption and paper waste compared with a conventional press. Internally, we have made a choice to recycle our waste paper and to print on recycled paper to help reduce our environmental impact.


The benefits of sustainable printed products


Improved brand image
Consumers often take into account a company's impact on the environment. At Gibson Printing, we support our community of Scarborough, Ontario in many ways. One of them is the decision to improve our sustainability. Being environmentally friendly is a way we strive to actively support the town we've been operating in since 1916. Other companies are slowly realizing the tremendous improvement of brand awareness that can be unlocked by simply “doing good”.

Reducing The Environmental Impact of Printing

We can also choose to print on both sides of the paper or use smaller fonts to reduce the amount of paper used. In addition, using sustainable inks, such as soy-based inks, which are eco-friendly and biodegradable.


Choosing Recycled Paper

We're always looking for ways to help reduce our customers carbon footprint by making them aware of sustainable printing options. Using recycled paper is a great way to help the environment. Not only does it reduce the amount of trees that are cut down each year, but it also helps to conserve natural resources. you can be confident that your project will not only look great but will also be eco-friendly.


Print Quality & Sustainable Print

A lot of people question whether their printed materials will still look good on recycled paper. The truth is that with the right paper and printing techniques, your printed materials can look just as good as if they were printed on standard paper. In fact, using recycled paper can even give your project a unique look and feel.

Working forests are good for the environment and provide clean air, clean water and wildlife habitat. Growing and harvesting trees provides jobs for millions of people here in Canada and throughout North America. With more paper companies using renewable energy in their supply chain and more environmental initiatives taking shape, we believe green printing will continue to have a positive impact.
