A couple weeks ago, I tweeted about a company in San Francisco, that uses old trade show banners, to create vinyl items like bags and folders. Since then, we've been sending our vinyl misprints to them for their skilled repurposing.
What do we mean when we say misprints? Well, sometimes spelling errors make it through our customer's proofing process and it may not be noticed until the Finishing Department gets it - in which case, we'll fix the spelling and reprint it (all without our customers realizing they had an error).
This, along with the occasional color drop, results in a few hundred square feet of wasted vinyl a week (sometimes, it seems like a day).
Recently, we came across an article in which the Women's Pavilion organization has begun a similar project, in San Antonio to help save the Women's Pavilion at HemisFair Park and the planet.
We think this sort of thing is great because, while our vinyl banners are awesome, they do, ultimately, end up in landfills (sometimes it takes years, sometimes they're ordered just for a specific event and find there way there quickly).
So, please keep ordering, we love printing all the orders, and know that we're working to reduce our impact on our world so we can all enjoy it.
Till Next Time...
