FSC Certified Papers & Soy Based Inks
Alchemi Design’s products are created with FSC certified paper cultivated from responsibly forested paper manufacturers. FSC certified suppliers must maintain a rigorous “chain-of-custody” from the forest to the printer, confirming sustainably managed logging and creating a truly environmentally and socially responsible product which we then use to design and create products for our clients. We combine this with soy-based ink which reduces our impact on the environment by making the paper easier to recycle and eliminating its petroleum-based counterpart. Being environmentally responsible is a priority at Alchemi Design & Publications and it is reflected in the products we develop for each of our clients.
