Many people ask whether the book printing company uses eco-friendly book printing materials as their book printing requirements when printing books.
Especially when printing children’s books, the use of harmless and eco-friendly printing materials is conducive to the growth of children and does not harm their health. Therefore, the children’s book printing by ChinaPrintingExport, we will select harmless, eco-friendly and safe book printing materials for our clients.
However, how do professional book printing company realize green and eco-friendly book printing in China? You have to understand some of the following knowledge.
1. Choose the eco-friendly book printing ink
Solvent-based book printing inks will produce volatile organic substances. When paper printed with this ink is thrown into the garbage dump, toxic substances will seep into the soil and affect human health. At the same time, this toxic substance will be emitted into the air as the ink dries.
Soy ink is a very good environmentally friendly ink with low content of volatile and toxic substances. This ink is not only environmentally friendly but also has good book printing quality and low cost. It is suitable for newspapers, magazines, and book printing.
2. Choose the eco-friendly bleach
Smooth and bright white paper generally needs to be bleached. Before choosing the printing paper, it is best to understand whether the handling process of this paper meets environmental protection requirements. To make the paperwhite, it is generally chlorinated. Although chloride is safer than pure chlorine, there is still some pollution. The selected paper is bleached by PCF or TCF, that is, using oxides instead of chlorides for paper bleaching.
3. Implement eco-friendly production in the book printing process
a. When using ink, first check how many colors of ink need to be used, whether you can use two-color instead of multi-color for full-color book printing.
b. Use color cards to control the optimal amount of ink. This can also reduce V0C emissions.
c. In order to avoid book printing paper waste, use standard book printing paper. If the format is too large, so that use the special size paper.
4. Design considerations for environmental protection
Good design appearance will attract readers to buy books, but book printing designers should consider the waste of excessive packaging. Because even the most beautiful packaging will eventually become garbage, we recommend that guests use recycled paper as the packaging for books.
For example, when we are printing products with a lot of text and low requirements for images, we can recommend that customers use non-coated paper for printing. Because its waste paper is highly recyclable.
