Oxford GreenPrint provides ethical, low impact printing to community groups, campaign groups, NGOs and businesses both in Oxford and across the UK. All our printing is done on recycled paper or card using renewable energy.
Note that the pictures below are intended as a rough guide rather than exact samples; the web operates at a much lower resolution than printing, so it’s impossible to properly convey on a webpage how a printed item will really look.
Riso Ink Printing
Our favourite printing method; it offers low cost, low energy and low emission printing with minimal waste. This process uses just a sixth of the energy of the average digital printer and uses soya inks which are completely free of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds, the polluting chemicals used in most conventional printing). We print in fixed shades (currently black, green, red, orange and blue); text and line art prints well, but photographs and shades of gray are a bit more challenging.
Single-colour Riso printing:
See more examples of what a Riso can do on our Facebook page.
Our old laser printer, while not as eco-friendly as our Riso printer, prints full colour. But it is quite old and not high quality. It is more expensive than Riso so we tends to only use it for very small print runs. If you NEED full-colour printing and want it to be eco-friendly too, we can recommend: AngliaPrint.co.uk. Or a bit nearer: Seacourt.net.
Design and layout work
We are happy to help with any layout and design work needed. We have 25 years of experience working with a variety of NGOs and campaign groups, producing leaflets, magazines, publicity for events and campaigns, as well as flyers and posters for local music promoters.
We also offer paper sales, lamination, cutting and trimming services. Contact us if you need more details.
We reserve the right to refuse printing for any material or organisation we consider to be unethical. This would include anything which promotes social injustice, war or destruction of the environment, as well as corporations and mainstream political parties.
