Greg Barber and Eco-Libris present: your weekly green printing tip

You want to print green but you're not sure how? we convinced you that greening up your printing practices is the right thing to do, but you don't know where to start? you wonder if eco-friendly printing is necessarily more expensive?

Well, you got to the right place!

Today, in collaboration with Greg Barber, an experienced eco-friendly printer, we're starting a new series on our blog entitled "green printing tips".

Every week we'll bring you a new tip of Greg Barber on how to make your printing more eco-friendly.

We'll try to keep it as informative and practical as possible and we hope you will find it valuable. If you have any further questions following our tips, or you have a specific question you want us to address, please email us to info@ecolibris.net.

You can also find further valuable information on Greg Barber Company's website - http://www.gregbarberco.com.

And finally, if you miss a tip or two, no worries! All the tips will be archived and saved on http://www.ecolibris.net/greentips.asp

So without further ado, let's go to Greg's first green printing tip:

Tip #1
Any printing that can fit on, up to, 500 sheets of 13 x 20 paper, is probably a digital job. I would check our offset pricing at around 300 sheets. We can fit 4.25 x 6 postcards, 9 up, on 13 x 20 cover, which will yield 4500 postcards.
