Green Printing

Green Philosophy

We are committed to green social responsibility by reducing our global footprint and improving our environmental performance. We offer clients environmentally friendly alternatives via the use of recyclable post consumer paper from certified managed forests and operate environmentally friendly, full color DI Presses, which use soy based inks and image digitally on recyclable plates, using no chemicals or heavy metals.


The term environmentally friendly is possibly one of the most misunderstood and misused terms in recent years. Our research shows that there is great misunderstanding about the negative effect of using paper and paper-based products on the environment. Contrary to misinformed criticism, paper has an excellent environmental-friendly story to tell, as paper through managed forestry is a completely renewable and recyclable raw material.

Minuteman Press Downtown is totally committed to the protection of the environment and the world’s forests. We only buy papers from recognized USA paper merchants who source their products from well-managed, sustainable forests. As a result, we can offer a wide range of environmentally approved or recycled products. Our extensive range of digital print capabilities also helps to reduce waste by allowing clients to print smaller quantities, helping to reduce obsolescence and unnecessary storage.

We are also committed to continually reviewing and improving our production methods to minimize waste, maximize recycling and reduce our carbon footprint.

Sustainable Sourcing: There are numerous independent bodies advocating the sustainable use of our woodlands in manufacturing. They believe that paper production should not lessen the total number of trees on the planet. When choosing our suppliers we prioritize those than carry certification within their sourcing of raw materials.

Recycled Product Range: Minuteman Press Downtown offers a range of print produced on paper and cards manufactured from 50% and 100% recycled materials.

Environment: All waste paper and cards are recycled.

We also have a successful partnership with Trees For Houston, whereby we donate trees in support of our environmentally friendly printing.
