Thursday, October 31, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Marly, Switzerland – ILFORD, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional quality media for both inkjet printing and color photographic processes, today announced that most of its popular KODAK MATCHPRINT Inkjet Proofing Media have gone through the PEFC certification process.

The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM). Through this certification of environmental recognition, users of KODAK MATCHPRINT Inkjet Proofing Media can be confident that the products they are purchasing are produced to PEFC standards and support sustainable forestry.
 
In recent years the core customers of commercial printers have continued to demand environmentally responsible print solutions and by offering PEFC certified media, commercial printers are able to ensure these demands are being met. Customers can access details of the full product range through www.kodakmatchprintmedia.com.
 
“Our proofing customers are continually pushing for more environmentally responsible media and ILFORD has responded to that demand. Our customers have the assurance of providing sustainable sourcing to their clients, thus supporting the ever-growing environmental business standards. The sustainable certification of the KODAK MATCHPRINT Inkjet Proofing Media products we offer are an expansion of those sought-after solutions and should help printers looking to cater to clients with strong environmental policies and preferences,” said Jane Dixon, Director of Global Marketing for ILFORD.
