Nature is an infinite source of inspiration, you will note it on many of our products, for example on our floral wallpapers. It is therefore obvious for us to limit our impact on the environment as much as possible, while of course guaranteeing optimal print quality. Find out in details how we work towards this goal, through different approaches.
A responsible choice of raw materials:
Our wallpapers are printed on two recyclable supports: the textured non-woven with a linen look, and the matt and smooth non-woven without PVC. They both offer great technical qualities, allowing very high-precision printing with solvent-free inks, as well as great resistance and professional ease of installation. Both substrates are manufactured in England and Germany, guaranteeing compliance with European environmental and social standards, as well as a reasonable transport distance.
Smooth matte non-woven in particular is a quality PVC-free wallpaper, ideal for use as wallpaper in a bedroom for example.
Printing is made with high-precision machines using HP Latex water-based, solvent-free and odourless inks. This allows us to work pleasantly without any particular ventilation. These inks are UL ECOLOGO® and UL GREENGUARD GOLD certified.
all parts of the printing process are recycled (ink cartridges, printheads, paper, cardboard).
Le Presse Papier has chosen a supplier of 100% Green local energy, a renewable energy produced by small, environmentally friendly installations.
Print on demand :
For various reasons, we only print on demand. This practice allows us to guarantee optimal quality and to offer unique wallpapers at reasonable prices. From an ecological point of view, it also prevents us from wasting unsold production as some generalists may have, as well as the maintenance of a warehouse (especially in terms of energy). Please note that we still maintain very fast production times (manufacturing within 24 to 72 hours after order).
In addition, we print our 62cm webs on 127cm reels, allowing us to reduce paper waste considerably by only losing 3cm of recyclable paper, which is still needed for the printing margins and for a perfect cut.
A management of our production certified Imprim'vert :
Our printing workshop is certified Imprim'Vert, a french professional printers label that guarantees an eco-friendly management of our production. To obtain this label, we must comply with the following criteria:
