Environmentally Friendly Printing
During the 1990s the damaging environmental impact of the printing industry was realised. Printroom then enthusiastically embarked on a long-term strategy to ensure that the environment would not be adversely affected by our business activities.
Printroom is not only committed to you, but to everything around you.
Our design and print service is driven by a policy to leave only the lightest environmental footprint without compromising either dynamic service and cost competitiveness.
