Maple Press has been at the forefront of the industry in regards to recycled paper options. We were the first U.S. printer to use chlorine-free, FSC®-certified paper in a book way back in 1999. Today we offer a complete selection of recycled paper options containing post-consumer waste content ranging from 10% through 30%, and many which are FSC-certified when they arrive at our manufacturing location. Papercovers, book jackets, and preprint case covers are printed on eco-friendly stocks as well.

The case material suppliers we utilize all have strong environmental platforms. Aqueous coatings, biodegradable content, and sustainable sourcing are among the qualities of their eco-friendly materials. All board that we use in the manufacturing of hardcover books comes from 100% recycled materials, rounding out our eco-friendly material options for hardcover books.

By creating a Green by Design materials package with recycled paper options, we have developed material and component choices for customers seeking eco-friendly manufacturing. These materials are easy to select, use, and promote to help meet the demand for more environmentally friendly products.
