Recycled Printing Overview 

Solopress and our comprehensive range of environmental friendly print

The way we treat and view the environment impacts heavily on the way we live and work, therefore we feel its important that everyone has the opportunity to share the responsibility of sustaining our environment.

At Solopress we have gone to great lengths to source and offer products to our customers that meet their environmentally conscious needs, this brief introduction illustrates the controls we have put in place to ensure our products and the work carried out on site has minimal impact on the environment.


We use 100% Recycled Paper for our offset and 55 silk for our coated range of flyers, business cards, leaflets and posters.

There are no cost effective 100% recycled coated papers available on the market at this time. However, the coated gloss and silk paper we use and endorse have a recycled paper content of 55% and is a certified FSC Paper.


Solopress now only use eco inks. These inks use vegetable oil instead of mineral oil. Such inks have been available for some time, but now the inks have been developed so well it doesn't compromise the quality of your work. Solopress have not just adapted this to our flyers, we are producing all of our printed products using these inks.

The perfect product for advertising your business whilst conveying a strong environmental message.
