LOS ANGELES - January 22, 2008 - RnJ Printing Corporation located in the greater Los Angeles area has announced their business has added "green" to their company shingle for 2008. RnJ is one of only 2% of Southern California printers certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an eco-friendly organization that has established criteria for sustainable paper usages, as well as a national registry of printers who meet the criteria for FSC distinction.
"With today' s business customers seeking environmentally friendly paper and printing production, it became apparent there was a need that could be filled, while also being the right thing to do for our planet," stated RnJ CEO, John Osten.
RnJ Printing Corporation, with over 30-years of offset printing experience is a supplier and distributor of customized printing products for design studios, manufacturing companies and corporate businesses across the U.S. and is proud of its new partnership with the FSC. With more than 80% of its customers based in LA and Orange County, they welcome new customers who want to develop a green approach. Osten has invested heavily in state-of-the-art printing equipment and procedures that help to promote environmental consciousness, by using FSC certified paper that comes from thoughtfully managed forests, soy-based inks that cause almost no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC' s), help reduce foreign oil dependency, and a production facility that carefully manages wastes into recyclables.
"Sustainability is the key issue for some of our larger clients." Continued Osten "In addition the eco-friendly status allows our clients to take advantage of the easily recognizable FSC logo characterized by the 'tree approval' check mark to tie into their own branding and image"
Printing related trade groups have supported the FSC to include everything from corrugated boxes and newspapers to envelopes and flexible packaging. The Printing Industries of America and Graphic Arts Technical Foundation have projected that more than 90% of U.S. printers believe customers will eventually require all printing to be environmentally friendly in the near future.
With a newly added digital press RnJ is positioned to cover a wide spectrum of printing needs while keeping it all under the greenest guidelines available today.
