Sustainability is Our Commitment


Green By Design logo

Many businesses today are touting the green initiatives they currently have in process. Through the years, Maple Press has routinely incorporated eco-friendly procedures in our operations because they simply made sense. We have been Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling as a means to minimize our environmental impact for many years, long before it became a trend. Making quality books in a responsible, safe, and efficient manner has been part of our culture for many years. Our efforts to be green have been by design.

Today, we're clearly at the forefront in producing books in a sustainable fashion. Maple Press has developed a brand new printing process that is so green, it’s won the Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence. One printing expert went as far as to describe our company as the ‘greenest printer’. Read below to learn more about our revolutionary THINKTech® technology which virtually eliminates VOC emissions during the printing process. This system is complemented by our Green by Design package which enables our customers to create books using the ample set of recycled materials available in our stocking programs.

In addition to the internal efforts in place at Maple Press relating to environmental stewardship, we continue to be a leader in our support of environmental initiatives in the book industry.
