SpeedPro Imaging Forth Worth Celebrates Earth Day 365 Days A Year

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

DENVER, Colo. – When it comes to being a “green business,” printing companies are not typically known for being the greenest industry, but SpeedPro Imaging of Fort Worth is looking to change that preconceived belief one project at a time. 

“Being a green business is not something we do only on Earth Day,” said Jeremy Petty, owner of SpeedPro Imaging of Fort Worth. “For us, producing the greenest products available is a part of our mission statement. Not only are our customers going to get high quality work from us, but they are going to leave knowing it was sustainably produced.”

When Petty first purchased his SpeedPro location in 2013, he set out to reduce the amount of waste his studio was producing. Today, the studio strictly uses latex ink, which is water based, instead of traditional ink. Petty and his team also uses EFI H1625 LED flatbed and HP Latex 360, which are two of the most eco-friendly printers on the market, and prints on recycled paper and recycled products when possible.

When it comes to being sustainable, many people who want to be eco-friendly are unaware of alternatives to traditional printing. When consulting clients, Petty uses samples of traditional versus green substrates when discussing projects, so they can see firsthand the difference.  Petty also regularly attends green-focused shows, such as the Earth Day Texas, a large festival and exhibit event, to meet with other ecologically minded businesses. 

In addition to using the greenest technology available, SpeedPro Imaging of Fort Worth recycles 100% of its studio’s waste. The location also provides a recycling service to clients where Petty and his team will recycle the returned material free of charge. 

SpeedPro Imaging of Fort Worth is certified by the Green Business Bureau and recognized as the greenest location throughout the SpeedPro Imaging franchise.

“Our studio is constantly looking for ways to improve our environmental footprint,” said Petty. “From meeting with vendors regularly to learn about the newest green products to donating to local green charities, we are constantly looking to evolve our business. For us, doing small, consistent changes have a greater impact over time.”

SpeedPro Imaging is the nation’s leader in large-format imagery, specializing in high-quality products including wall murals, event graphics, tradeshow displays, vehicle wraps and window graphics.
