Advanced Labels NW consistently strives to be a good environmental steward, and in the process we’ve earned nearly 50 awards for printing excellence and continuing innovation.
In addition to our partnership with Waste Management to recycle 90% of all our company waste materials, we made the switch to water based inks for flexo printing decades ago – before it became commonplace. Despite the learning curve inherent in moving away from solvent-based inks, we remained committed to our green initiatives and quickly became a pioneer in environmentally friendly flexo printing.
WIth the addition of our Servo 3000 Re-Registration Unit, we are able to reduce our material waste even further. In addition to responsible recyling and waste reduction benefits, being a more efficient label printer allows us to pass savings on to our clients.
We are proud to offer the most environmentally sensitive printing option available to our valued clients: HP Indigo Digital. Our state-of-the-art HP Indigo 8000 press isn’t just sustainable, its quality, versatility, and value make it the perfect compliment to our flexo capabilities.
Reduction in Manufacturing Waste:
As a hypothetical example, a 200 SKU label printing run produces:
Flexography Printing Make Ready Waste:
~180,000 Linear Feet (That’s over 34 miles of manufacturing waste at 900 Linear Feet per SKU)
~42,400 Square Inches of Photopolymer
HP Indigo Digital Printing Make Ready Waste:
~7,000 Linear Feet
In this example there would be a 96% reduction in label manufacturing waste!
Reduction in Label Printing Obsolescence Waste:
Avoid label material obsolescence by printing only what you need and when you need it!
HP Indigo Digital Also has NO:
