If the right choices are made the printed product is truly sustainable

Paper merchants come and go, and they all engage with environmental issues (which, unlike print, are not performance related) to some extent. Paperback was at the forefront of environmental awareness and remains an important player. It is accurate to say that the paper industry, in the form of environmental awareness of issues relating to paper manufacture and importance of sourcing fibre from responsible sources, led the way for the printing industry. it is also accurate to say that some of the most stubborn and persistent examples of misinformation relate to paper products.

Paperback started selling recycled paper in 1983 and pioneered the market for these products.. Our aim was to help the recycling loop by promoting greater use of recycled paper - and this is still our objective. We remain the only UK paper merchant specialising in recycled papers and were also the first merchant in Europe to obtain FSC accreditation.

Whether you are producing annual reports, catalogues, newsletters, magazines, point of sale material or distinctive promotions, there is a wide choice of coated, offset, business and specialty grades. To help in your specification we can provide you with plain or printed samples, technical and environmental information sheets. There is also a wide choice of A4 recycled office, letterhead and promotional papers, most of which are suitable for photocopying, inkjet, laser or digital printing.

Office Supplies include envelopes, filing products, pads and pens - all made from recycled fibres. ‘Natural Presentation’ is a service offering ring binders, pocket folders and wallets, made to customers’ specifications from a range of distinctive textured boards. ‘Natural Presentation’ is the ideal environmental choice for your conference, sales or information packs.

Logos such as this are very common...and a meaningless claim, intended to mislead.
