As you design your business cards, custom booklets or entire direct mail campaigns, you may wonder about the environmental impact of all that online printing. Let’s face it, we still need printed materials, but we don’t need to print them carelessly. Enter recycled paper stocks.

As an eco-friendly printer, Onestopdp is committed to sustainable business practices that benefit our community and the customers we serve, and that includes offering recycled paper stocks.

Not only good for personal invitations and custom stationery, sustainable printing can be implemented for promotional calendars, even advertising posters, to boost your business reputation, too.

How Recycled Paper is Made

So how does all this recycling work for an online printer like Onestopdp? To turn used paper into new paper, you need to bring water and chemicals into the mix – they break down the used paper.

The paper is then cut up and heated, which creates an organic plant material known as pulp. That pulp goes through a straining process to remove any particles (like plastic), is cleaned, removed of any ink, gets bleached and mixed once more with water.

It’s then made into brand new recycled paper.

Our Recycled Paper Stocks

Onestopdp makes it easy for you to make eco-friendly choices with recycled paper that’s completely or partially certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
