John Braceland has written an excellant perspective on shared values with key suppliers. Implied is the clear opportunity for printers to learn specifically what their key suppliers are accomplishing in the enviro enhancement arena. Then with permission and attribution these printers can let their customers know via company website, ezine, etc. that these enhanced environmental attributes are now prevalent in or on their clients' printed products.
