Impress Makes the "Green Team" Honor Roll


Chatsworth, CA-Impress Communications ("Impress"), a top commercial printer and visual communications company, is one of 10 California printers and the only San Fernando Valley-based firm singled out for achieving a defined level of environmental excellence in business operations.

The Environmental Excellence Awards, sponsored by American Printer magazine, honored 56 organizations nationwide. This competition recognizes commercial printers who are leading the industry in environmentally conscious manufacturing. An independent panel of judges reviewed each participant's production composition, personnel involvement, manufacturing process and facility.

Owner and Executive Director Paul Marino said, "We are delighted to be recognized. Sustainability is a process and each change we've made over the last half dozen years - from our move to our new headquarters to the Komori presses we purchased and our FSC certification -- has contributed and demonstrated our commitment to the environment and to our community."

For example, Marino cites that from 2006 through 2008, the company's paper substrate recycling has increased 49%. With its considerable expertise in specialty printing and custom product packaging, Impress finds its clients hungry for advice, no matter whether a luxury marketer or cost-conscious start-up. Marino says, "We do our best to raise green awareness and identify appropriate options and solutions that meet each client's precise needs."

The results of this competition are being published as a directory of "Environmentally Conscious Printers" and distributed nationwide by Print & Media Buyer magazine to print buyers and specifiers.

Impress Communications, Inc., an FSC-certified printer and integrated visual communications provider, is a privately held firm located in the San Fernando Valley community of Chatsworth, California. The Los Angeles-based company delivers solutions from a 35,000 square foot facility with full service studios and on-staff creatives handling graphic design & brand marketing, new media and digital photography, pre-press, commercial printing on Komori conventional and specialty UV presses, and custom packaging - all under one roof.
