Sustainable Print Design Guide Released
Monadnock Paper Mills has released the second edition of a how-to guide for creating more sustainable print materials. A Field Guide: Eco-Friendly, Efficient and Effective Print points out alternatives for design decisions that support sustainability. New information in the second edition includes a full chapter dedicated to packaging, an expanded section on energy and emissions, and an overview of the various environmental programs, logos, and terminology that many paper mills use in their product literature today.
Designed with no bleeds and sized for efficient sheet use, the guide is an exercise in sustainability itself. Monadnock says that the message is that eco-friendly design can be cost-efficient, environmentally sensitive, and beautiful. The guide is printed on Monadnock’s Astrolite PC, a 100 percent uncoated post-consumer fiber, process chlorine-free, archival quality paper. All Monadnock’s Graphic Arts Printing and Packaging Papers, including Monadnock Astrolite PC 100, are made with 100 percent renewable electrical energy and are manufactured carbon neutral.
