Standards Matter

We often find printers closing off when we talk about standards and certification.
It seems that there is a perception that consumables and additives that carry certification and adhere to certain standards with regards to the environment, will cost the printing house more a thereby reducing profitability. This is simply not true!
Printing companies can and should benefit from the research and standards that are subsequently established as they relate to processes, consumables and additives used in the offset process. In short – responsibility, sustainability and profitability can all be achieved by adhering to standards!
The most well known of the certification bodies is Fogra, whose standards are set to ensure consistency of quality, real economy and enhanced profitability. For printers looking to attract new customers in packaging, organisations like ISEGA , BRC /IOP and REACH also have a lot to offer.
