FSC encourages responsible printing at Print Show

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has made the most out of The Print Show to inform and educate visitors about its goal for more responsibly sourced papers and boards in the print industry.

The FSC was pleased with the varied range of visitors to The Print Show 2016 from across the supply chain

Beth Bennett, business development manager of FSC UK, says: “There has been a varied visitor range across the supply chain including those who procure print and those who do the printing, and we have had a steady flow of visitors throughout the show.

“We are not here to sell or buy, we are here to facilitate. The vast majority of people we have met here are dealing with certified paper already but it’s now about pushing it that bit further and encouraging printers to make claims.”

The FSC is working on the specifying of FSC materials and getting printers to apply an FSC label to products in order to their give customers the assurance that the company has chosen to source responsibly, a goal that has been given a helping hand by The Print Show.

Of course, paper is just one part of the print industry. Companies such as Vpress are showing how web-to-print software solutions are key for business growth. Jack Walsh and Andy Webb from Vpress told me the show has gone very well for the company and has exceeded expectations, seeing many printers and print managers stop by for more information.

Vpress’ main aim was to get its name out there more with its Coreprint product, an easy to use tool that will allow printers to automate workflows with features such as DAM (digital asset management) and stock management, all of which help to boost efficiency.

Fanela made its space at The Print Show by attaching examples of its services to the walls of its stand, for example, an embroidered hat, a screen printed t-shirt, and a litho transferred shirt. The company specialises in screen printing, embroidery, transfer printing, and direct-to-garment printing, all for the trade market.

Artie Pallari, managing director of Fanela says: “We have spoken to some good clients and had good enquiries about what we do. Our main purpose for exhibiting at The Print Show was to look for a new client base and diversify in this aspect. We have talked to both sign-makers and printers, and are happy with how it has gone.”
