Long Island City, New York (PRWEB) June 17, 2011
The decision to go green was easy for Apple Visual Graphics. As a printing company focused on printing paper goods such as postcards, business cards and brochures, Apple Visual Graphics is subject to market fluctuation in price for paper. Many people forget paper comes from trees, and as a natural resource being over harvested, trees and paper are commoditized. Going green helps ensure trees and paper will stay around, ensuring Apple Visual Graphics the opportunity to continue to offer the public quality, custom printed goods.
In addition to using FSC stock for the majority of jobs manufactured in their plant, Apple Visual Graphics uses soy based ink on their offset presses and Eco solvent on the Wide Format Printers. What this means, to the average person not involved in printing, is Apple Visual Graphics has cut the petroleum based products out of the printing equation.
Apple Visual Graphics, unlike many local New York print shops survived the recession and plans on coming out on top. Determined to be the leader in the local industry, Apple Visual Graphics has hit the ground running since the soft launch of the re-brand in March of 2011. This re-brand included a renewed commitment to going green. Apple Visual Graphics has always done its best to reduce waste and recycle what waste it does generate. In order to promote green printing, Apple Visual Graphics has made sure to become listed in many eco-friendly directories to include opengreenmap.org, madeinnyc.org and greenecoservices.com. Apple Visual Graphics will also be featured for being a local green printer in the New York Industrial Retention Network’s, June newsletter.
Apple Visual Graphics has a long history in the local community printing collateral for many local agencies with a vested interest in going green such as Partnership for Parks, Bryant Park Corporation and City Parks Foundation. Apple Visual Graphics has moved forward doing recycled work for such brand icons as RocNation, Verterra and both the Queens and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

With ties to the community, Apple Visual Graphics prides itself for being Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council certified.
