In September 2015, commercial printing company Apple Visual Graphics added Kraft paper to their gift wrapping line for individuals or companies looking for more eco-friendly options.

One of the company's clients that ordered gift wrapping recently requested Kraft paper, which was something that the company typically used for packaging rather than printing. But ultimately, Apple Visual Graphics discovered a water-based ink that worked beautifully with Kraft paper.

Currently, Apple Visual Graphics is offering Kraft paper for their environmentally concerned clients.

Apple Visual Graphics' Kraft paper is unbleached brown paper that is normally used as industrial packaging paper. Being unbleached means that harmful chemicals are not added to the processing of the finished paper, making it a more environmentally friendly option.

Apple Visual Graphics is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) through the Rainforest Alliance™ Smartwood Program. The FSC® is one of the most widely accepted and acclaimed global standards for responsible forestry.

Their certification includes both mandatory and transparent chain-of-custody, meaning an FSC® product can be easily traced to its origins. The process ensures the exclusion of wood from illegal sources and verifies that both forests and workers are treated fairly in the production process.

Apple Visual Graphics uses soy-based ink, water-based ink or eco-solvent inks for their Kraft paper printing, and only uses paper certified from the FSC®. These inks were all certified, and no petroleum products are used to create these materials.

"We live in this world and we understand the need to be able to recycle without harming the environment," said Howard Sturm, CEO of Apple Visual Graphics.

The company is now offering the Kraft paper to be shipped in rolls or flat. The previous year, Apple Visual Graphics shipped rolls to Ritz Crackers, sending around 15 rolls to each of the 60 locations.

Offering green products to their customers upholds Apple Visual Graphics' reputation in the community as a business committed to reducing the carbon footprint created by forest-based industries. As members of the Forest Stewardship Council, Apple Visual Graphics adheres to all guidelines set forth.

Offering green products gives customers with businesses of their own a chance to enhance their image and offer more green options to their own customers.

Apple Visual Graphics is currently offering a special; any gift wrapping purchases or gift wrapping paper purchases made by November 6th will be met with a 7.5% discount offer by simply speaking to a sales representative and mentioning Kraft paper/press release before making a purchase.

Apple Visual Graphics has always aimed to be green with their soy-based ink for offset printing uses and the eco-solvent ink used for wide-format printing, and all of their papers are recyclable and environment friendly.
