Sustainable print and mail

At KJS We Are Direct Mail we care about the environment we live in. We therefore do everything we can to ensure we are protecting it the best we can. This includes:

  • All paper waste is recycled weekly and a collection service is offered to clients to dispose of any unwanted paper waste.
  • All confidential waste is securely shredded on site and recorded to ISO27001 accreditation standards.
  • Our recently installed printing press uses the latest LED UV technology. We are one of only a handful of printers who has invested in this equipment in the UK. The press incorporates low energy drying, as ink is dried by UV frequency of light rather than heat. It also removes the need for starch powder sprays to separate wet sheets as conventional litho printers have. These powders contaminate the air in the work place.
  • Unlike normal litho presses our press also dries the ink instantly on the paper stock this means that the ink is not absorbed into the paper so we produce a much sharper and higher quality image unrivalled by a conventional commercial printer.
  • We only use papers sourced from sustainable forests. They all meet FSC and PEFC standards.
  • Our standard polywrap film is recyclable. We can also run potato starch wrap which is biodegradable and compostable.
  • We mitigate the CO2 emissions created by the production, storage and distribution of the paper we use though the Carbon Capture Scheme. We encourage our clients to also join the scheme.
