Impress takes home GOLD in the 2009 Environmental Excellence Awards


Chatsworth, CA - Impress Communications ("Impress"), an award-winning commercial printer and visual communications company, received top honors from American Printer's 2009 Environmental Excellence Awards earning a Gold.

American Printer, a premier national publication in the print services industry, awarded Impress the Gold for Most Environmentally Conscious Printer in their annual Environmental Excellence Awards. This prestigious competition, sponsored by companies such as Kodak, HP and NAPL, challenges commercial printers from around the country to be environmentally responsible in their business practices and be operationally progressive. An FSC-certified printer, Impress utilizes eco-friendly reusable, recyclable, and compost-able print solutions including low-VOC soy and organic inks, no-VOC UV inks, water-based coatings, low-VOC blanket washes, and solvents. Its 35,000 sq ft facility is environmentally optimized from its window treatments, to the building's structural design, to its custom designed workflow layout.

Impress also earned an award for Best Environmentally Produced Product for the company's "Think Green" brand brochure. The project incorporated FSC-certified stock, no-VOC inks, and unique production techniques that mimics a plastic finish but is actually paper.

"We are truly honored to be recognized again for this prestigious award that really embodies what Impress is all about... it really speaks to the core values of our business as we should all be working toward a more sustainable lifestyle" says Paul Marino, Impress' Executive Director.

Amongst the 18 awards issued out the hundreds of companies in the competition, Impress was the only California-based company to be recognized.
