THINKING GREEN. PRINTING SMARTER.
The printing process can be resource intensive, but there are many “green practices” we can incorporate in our daily work routines to help diminish the amount of waste we generate. Here are some methods we are currently using:
Recycling Programs – From paper to ink to money and everything in between, recycling saves. It also reduces air pollution and waste to landfills.
Controlling Waste – By establishing inventory controls, we reduce waste and save cash. Sequencing print jobs by ink color saves ink changes and labor while eliminating waste.
Using Resources Wisely – Incorporating recycled papers – with high levels of post-consumer content – into your communications projects helps keep a lot of paper out of landfills.
Choosing “Smart” Inks – Using vegetable- or soy-based inks means less toxins and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are released into the air and soil.
You can choose print communications to be part of your mix … and feel good about it. Having a partner that knows what’s essential to you and your brand image makes the choices easy.
The city of Lancaster is one of the oldest inland towns in the U.S. The roots of our center are local, and we believe what makes us strong and successful is our commitment to other local businesses. Allegra is proud to work with many different types of people and businesses in the Lancaster, PA area.
THE AMISH COMMUNITY IN LANCASTER, PA
Allegra MPM| Image360 has the advantage of working in a truly multicultural environment that not only extends from the bustling city of Lancaster to the lush and open farmlands that fill the rest of the Lancaster county, including the Amish community. The Amish have shunned the technological world based upon their understanding of Romans 12:2 that they are not to be “conformed to the world.” This opens Allegra MPM| Image360 to help Amish businesses with managing business needs from printing to marketing and web management. The Amish may still travel by horse and buggy, but they truly have a current day business acumen and it is a pleasure for us to be able to work in the Amish community.
