We recognize the importance of print industry sustainability with mindful inks and toners, energy efficient machines, material recycling and select papers.
Mindful Inks & Toners
The UV curable inks used in our Komori Lithrone perfecting offset press cures without being evaporated into the air and don’t contain solvent toxins.
Our digital color presses use SIMITRI plant-based toner to reduce environmental impact and cut toner consumption down by 30%.
Our wide format banner press uses Eco-ultra ink and LT solvent ink, keeping solvents from being released into the air.
Our Komori Lithrone offset press also reduces consumable energy usage, thus lowering the carbon footprint of print.
Our digital printing presses use induction heating fixing technology. Only the press’s roller surface is heated rather than the entire roller to reduce consumption and warm-up time.
Our wide format flatbed uses dual registration points, allowing for simultaneous print and set-up for uninterrupted production.
Our perfect binder uses PUR adhesive, allowing the machine to heat at a lower temperature than conventional EVA glue.
Multiple bins are located throughout our plant to ensure proper disposal of seven different types of materials, such as cardboard and stocks.
From January 2018 – December 2018, Delzer recycled over 378 tons of paper.
We are an FSC certified printer. Purchased paper is chain of custody certified for FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) through sustainable sources.
