Design, Inc. has taken the initiative and grown into an environmentally
friendly corporation by taking significant steps in their
production of print products.
Vast Design, Inc. is now using
soy-oil based inks instead of traditional petroleum-based
ink. Also known as vegetable-oil ink, soy ink is a great advancement
in the print industry. Soy ink is a safe and environmentally
friendly ink because of its simple compound compared to petroleum–based
ink. Using a simple process to make the ink, it consumes very
little energy and makes it very efficient. Soy ink has many
great advantages; one is its distinguishable clearness which
allows for brighter colored ink, which petroleum-based ink
do not allow because of its darker content. Thus soy inks
are popular for their vibrant colors. Soy ink can also be
easily removed from paper, which is helpful in paper recycling,
as it is quicker to process the paper. As the print industry
evolves, soy ink becomes an increasingly popular alternative.
Using unique Aqueous and UV coatings,
Vast Design has shifted yet another critical step in producing
environmentally friendly print products. The coatings which
consist of very low to zero traces of volatile organic compounds
(VOC) reduce harmful components that damage the atmosphere
and the surrounding environments. Impregnated washing systems
are used for press rollers and blankets which consist of minute
traces of VOCs. Fountain solutions are free of or use reduced
VOC solutions. Vast Design, on the constant lookout for safer
and more environmentally friendly press room products, recycles
all solutions and removes hazardous waste from their facilities,
preventing it from getting into the natural environment. Vast
Design production facilities are all alcohol-free environments
using only alcohol substitutes as well. Continued development
in press room products assures only the safest solutions will
be used in Vast Design's facilities.
An essential ingredient in the
print industry is paper. Vast Design utilizes paper that is
produced specifically for paper-making and is not produced
from illegally deforested trees.
As the environment needs us more
and more, Vast Design, Inc. will continue to use the safest
and least polluting materials in producing printed products.
