The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international certification and labeling system dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC enables businesses and consumers to create positive change to keep our forests healthy for generations to come. Rayacom is an FSC certified printer. We encourage clients to print on FSC® Certified and/or other ethically sourced base papers and the use of Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) stocks and Tree-Free Paper stocks. Paper is used multiple times during the make-ready process to save clean sheets and minimize production waste.
Rayacom is proud to be an environmentally conscientious offline and online print company. The paper we use comes from trees harvested under the Sustainable Forest Initiative. Additionally, Rayacom invested in waterless printing and chemical-free plates – a cutting edge press technology that is considerably safer for the environment and the people who work in our printing facilities. Most printing companies still operate outdated print presses that use toxic chemicals and consume over 25,000 gallons of water per month! We continuously aim for zero waste and for sustainable printing. Rayacom currently uses vegetable inks and recycle everything after use in production, including organic waste, papers, soft and hard plastics, leftover ink, electronics, press blankets, rags, pallets, UV bulbs, aluminum plates, solvents and even printing blankets. Rayacom is proud to be the only offline and online printing company that exclusively uses waterless printing.
