Online PR News – 28-June-2012 – Prescott, AZ – PRESCOTT, AZ – April 13, 2012 – Custom Sticker Makers, a printing company operating in Prescott, Arizona servicing the nearby areas offers a new service with their “Green” Sticker Printing. The service uses eco-solvent inks, an innovation which helps address the issue of reducing environmental footprints caused by volatile organic compounds.

“All of our stickers are produced with a new, state-of-the-art technology that utilizes eco-solvent inks so they do not give off VOCs or volatile organic compounds—not now, not ever,” assured Jeff Daverman, founder of Custom Sticker Makers.

Large amounts of inks are used in the creation of custom stickers, and those inks have a real environmental impact—all the way from how these are manufactured to how they affect the health of those who work with them, to the chemicals that they release as they eventually degrade. During the process of printing, volatile organic compounds (VOCs)--a by-product of petroleum-based inks, adhesives, laminates, and varnishes—are released. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, VOCs affect air quality and create air pollution, increasing the risk of asthma attacks and other health issues. All Custom Sticker Maker stickers are produced with eco-solvent inks instead.

“Using eco-solvent ink is not optional for those who are seeking a greener sticker. Eco-solvent inks are what CSM uses for every sticker, and for every order,” adds Daverman.

Custom Sticker Makers also strives to lessen its environmental footprint by:

• Recycling all vinyl scrap from every order. (It is made into glue.)

• Recycling ink cartridges

• Printing with a thin paper backing (instead of thick card stock backing)

• Printing paper work on recycled and reusable paper

• Whenever possible, sourcing production and resource needs locally

• Reusing packaging materials

For these efforts, Custom Sticker Makers received the Small Business Development Association’s 2010 Small Business of the Year Award.
