Calculate Your Savings
Strategic Planning •
Seek a commitment to making sustainable communications part of the overall green strategy
Summarize all projects broken down by timeframe – campaign, quarter, or year
Prioritize projects in order of need for green messaging
Determine choice of environmental features for each project
Work with paper & print partners to estimate fit with budget
Strategic Planning: Credit Lines •
Create standard credit line verbiage & logo usage for projects based on your plan (internal approval) – Can include detailed environmental savings
Document requirements for projects – COC & which type, PCW, Green Power, etc.
Both of these steps will deliver consistent communication to suppliers
Green Checklist: Planning Your Options Planning Standardize your closing environmental statement for use in print communications to save time and ensure consistency Maximize synergy between print materials and your website Concept Review options for the printed piece to serve a secondary use or include information that will cause it to be used multiple times Scheduling Allow time for: Ordering custom-size paper for less waste Ordering paper with extra recycled content Budget Considerations Find out if and how your costs will change with a green paper selection or altered print plan
Green Checklist: Project Considerations
Specify a chain-of-custody certified paper with or without recycled content and renewable energy • Utilize our environmental savings calculator at http://www.utopiapaper.com to aid decision-making
Support a paper mill that has ISO 14001 certification and a transportation program designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions Determine if the finished size is optimal for standard forms and/or is it forcing multiple forms? • Will the components “travel” excessively (i.e. is the paper imported from overseas, the bindery located four states away, the mail facility in the Midwest with the printer on the coast)?
Print has Shared Purpose Today, creating and executing successful print campaigns takes more thought, collaboration, and integration than ever before. Everyone who influences the role of print in the mix or helps execute print projects plays an important role.
People want to be moved. Want to be lifted up. Want to be inspired. Thatâ€™s what your best print lives to do. It touches people, and when it does, they remember. They genuinely like good print, and that means the same to your customers as it likely means to you.
Print with Purpose. Print on Utopia. We believe that the better the support, the better the results Thatâ€™s why we offer the most extensive line of premium coated paper with a depth of green solutions And why our people and our resources are available to help you every step of the way
