Eco friendly materials and processes

Recyclable Paper & Materials

Our paper products are all FSC Certified. We provide compostable bags at higher quantities. Our plastic bags are made from non-virgin fiber.

Ships In its Own Container (SIOC)

We’re SIOC Certified by Amazon. Combining your primary and secondary packaging allows for less waste and a better unboxing experience. You can design inserts with us here along with learning more here.

Non-toxic Ink

Making use of eco-friendly inks is a big part of the move toward more sustainable printing methods. While no ink is 100-percent free from non-renewable resources or chemicals, modern inks are far better than traditional petroleum inks.

Digital Printing

No tooling required. Digital printing technologies are, by nature, more sustainable than traditional printing methods and offer a way forward toward clean, efficient, profitable manufacturing.

Compostable Mailers

OK Compost certification materials need to meet a minimum of 90% biodegradation of plastic materials within 180 days in Home compost and 12 months for Industrial compost.
