Green Print


Underpinning everything we do at Blackmore, our ethos is to limit any impact on the environment. This is something we are passionate about and is instilled throughout the business. You’ll come to expect our superb quality ‘green print’ as standard for all your print projects.

  • We only use raw materials from sustainable sources, supported by the FSC Chain of Custody.  

  • We work with the World Land Trust to provide carbon offsetting print on projects requiring certification.  

  • Our printing processes are continually assessed and improved to help reduce our impact on the environment.  

  • We use processless technology for our plate-making; low energy LED blue light technology for instant drying and have a comprehensive recycling and waste management system in operation, all supported by the ISO 14001 Environmental standard.
