Why go green?
At Barefoot Press our aim is simple: to bring you the most eco-friendly printed collateral for your business at prices everyone can afford. We don't pursue a lot of certifications because honestly we don't put much stock in them. There are just a handful of variables involved, so why cloud the issue with a bunch of fluff?
All of our products are printed on 100% recycled paper: our standard paper is 100% post consumer fiber and processed chlorine-free, and our French Paper upgrades come from an off-grid mill powered by on-site hydro. Our inks are soy based, our pressroom chemistry is low-VOC and water-miscible, and our production process produces no wastewater. Our plates are completely process-free - no processors, no developers - just high tech laser imaging devices producing top-quality, 200 line screen, recyclable aluminum plates. Everything that can be recycled is, and everything that can be reused is reused. Our plant is housed in a recycled industrial building upfit with energy-efficient appliances, lighting and materials. A percentage of our profits are donated to conservation non-profits and our energy use is offset with renewable energy credits.
We've been printing green since 1987, so we know how to produce award-winning quality on uncoated recycled papers. Can you find a cheaper business card on the internet? Undoubtedly. But we guarantee you won't find a cleaner, greener, more beautiful one.
