Why Print FSC Certified Labels ?

You are a label printer producing eco friendly labels, eco friendly stickers, green labels, environmentally friendly labels supplying it to India, Europe or United States of America, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification will help you get the recognition of manufacturing your label products with the most stringent forest management practices of the world.

Why become a FSC Certified Printer ?

Do you as a printer have the ability to add an FSC logo to your print job if requested by a customer?

When a company commissioning the printing of a report or brochure wishes to demonstrate its commitment to forest sustainability by using certified paper, it can request that the printer add a certification label to a prominent page. To be able to do so, as trademarks are strictly enforced, the printer must not only correctly source the paper, but must have CoC certification to demonstrate that appropriate control systems are in place. The FSC owns the trademarks to the initials ‘FSC’, to the words ‘Forestry Stewardship Council’, and the FSC logo.
