Earth Day: Conscious "Earth Friendly" Printing

An excerpt from Knepper Press: “We have reduced the use of harsh chemicals and replaced them with environmentally friendly green products, such as vegetable-based inks, press wash, fountain solutions, a state of the art recycling program and more.”

From the start in 2017, it was very important to me to:

1) Choose a printer that was local.

2) Choose a printer that upheld environmental standards.

For me, that was Knepper Press right outside of Pittsburgh. This wasn’t necessarily the cheapest ideal to have, but I was committed from the beginning to NOT back down on what I envisioned for this paper-based product.

And our packaging? Our cute, travel-friendly pouches are also made in the USA, and you won't find any extra fluff in our packaging; meaning you won't find any extra tissue paper in your shipping envelope just for the sake of looking pretty. We ship what's necessary AND what makes for a quality experience. That's it! Nothing more, nothing less. 

Could we do even better in the future? Probably, but I’m proud of how we started with integrity, and I plan to continue forward with the same practices in the evolution of JD. 🌳
