Designers, brand owners and creatives are constantly looking for an edge, a message to strategically deliver at every level of a campaign. Ad campaigns today leverage the entire process, and the printing method can drive social commentary itself.

LED printing is a perfect fit for any client looking for the most advanced socially-responsible qualities available from print, and may not be aware of the environmental benefits LED printing can deliver, such as:

  • LED uses the least energy compared to any heat-based IR/Hot Air and UV/H-UV drying process
  • LED uses zero VOC non-oxidative inks with no harmful emissions
  • LED inks provide up to a 30% higher yield from more efficient formulation
  • LED allows for reusing make-ready sheets multiple times, reducing paper waste
  • LED inks are entirely safe, and can be Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) certified from select manufacturers
  • LED lamps do not contain mercury (Hg) such as that found in UV/H-UV/LE-UV lamps
  • LED generates no ozone compared to UV/H-UV/LE-UV lamps, and is safer in the pressroom
  • LED prevents heat-activated toxins from being released from papers and coatings
  • LED speeds downstream processing and streamlines inefficient resource use
  • LED reduces heat into the pressroom, reducing the load on air-conditioning systems
  • LED eliminates powder contamination on the printed product, and associated respiratory concerns 

With LED the green aspects are real - and it represents a brilliant, environmentally sound printing future, available today.
