Sustainable Printing: The Elements Line of Papers

Elements line of papers header, substrates for sustainable printing

In recent years, concerns about sustainability are on the rise. More and more, customers are evaluating the eco-consciousness of the companies and brands they support. Sustainability messaging in direct mail has increased sharply in recent years, and brand credibility with increasingly eco-conscious consumers benefits from greener practices. Direct mail and print marketing channels are still effective and relevant, and for companies striving towards greener practices, there are ways to make their print marketing more eco-friendly!

In the pursuit of a more sustainable printing and direct mail industry, Convertible Solutions aims to reduce plastic waste and offer more eco-conscious products in the following ways:

  1. By offering plastic-free alternative substrates for printed products that often utilize plastic, such as PVC gift cards or plastic laminated items
  2. By offering responsibly sourced paper substrates

In keeping with these goals, Convertible Solutions is proud to offer our Elements™ line of papers, developed with sustainability in mind!
