At Orange Snowman, we are environmental conservation advocates. As a business, as a community and a people, we believe in leaving the World better than we found it and we know you feel the same way too. When you make an order for banners, we plant a tree. When you make an order for posters, flyers, stickers and garments, we will plant four trees. Get it? Trees are a very important part of nature and by planting trees through our Trees for The Future initiative; we work to make the world a better place.
Trees for The Future encourages people to build sustainable local economies that can support their needs for many years. Farmers throughout Africa, Asia and South America work with TFTF to learn agro forestry. Indigenous fruit trees and plants allow farmers to set up businesses while conserving the environment.
While we source all of our paper from eco-friendly sources; we also get a steady supply of paper that contains a significant amount of recycled content (post-consumer waste). Choosing environmentally friendly paper should not be a difficult decision to make.
All our paper meets the same high-standards for color fidelity and brightness, while still maintaining high quantities of recycled materials.
We don’t charge you extra because we use paper with higher PCW content.
All of our paper is sourced from eco-friendly, man-made forests in Europe or North America and are certified by one of the 3 major organizations that track timber, pulp and paper through the supply chain. Some of our paper stock is certified by all 3 organizations.
– Sustainable Foresty Initiative (SFI)
– Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)
– Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)

Printing for a better world.
We’re proud to use 100% plant-based inks as opposed to conventional inks sourced from cheap petroleum products. Our offset inks contain more than 30% vegetable-based ingredients and a minimum of 55% bio-derived ingredients. Our offset inks are manufactured without the use of petroleum ink solvent and have very low amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making them an eco-friendly choice. Water-based coatings ensure that our inks are fully biodegradable.
Water-Based Apparel Inks
Reduce your impact and shift to water-based apparel ink for your next project. Water-based inks create ultra-smooth prints that are of higher-quality than those made by conventional alternatives. However, these inks may not be suitable for all types of fabrics and designs, so make sure you do your homework before buying.
Zero fossil fuels here, only clean energy
Lowering our dependence on conventional energy sources was a wise decision. As soon wind energy subsidies were introduced to our region, we were among the first businesses to jump in. Not only does wind energy help us meet our power needs, but it also reinforces our continued commitment to renewable energy sources. Currently, we get all our power from renewable sources. This has allowed us to completely ditch fossils fuels. Hurray!
Being 100% wind-energy powered is a huge achievement; but, it’s actually our highly-efficient production-waste recycling program that has the biggest impact.
15x Less Paper Waste than Other Printing Companies
In the process of doing an offset printer make-ready, a typical printer wastes anywhere from 500 to 1000 sheets of paper – this is actually a ton of wasted paper. These make-readies are necessary to get the color plates in line and get the ink flowing correctly. That’s 1000 sheets of paper that go straight into the recycle bin even before your project has been completed.
Our brand-new Heidelberg Press is the first offset press in North America that’s rated 100% carbon-neutral. This press use only 30 to 50 sheets of paper to perform a successful make-ready. When we factor in the number of prints we do every year, we estimate that we will reduce our paper usage by up to 40%. That means that we save about 16 trees every day by simply reducing our production waste.
All our printing waste is reused or recycled.
Aluminum plates used during offset printing are recycled every month.
Make-readies and paper scraps are combined with our office paper recycling.
Apparel scraps are up cycled internally for clean up or donated to local shelters.
Packaging & Shipping
We have a huge stockpile of internally-manufactured packing boxes and papers that are stored in our warehouse. This reduces our need for small truck deliveries.
All unbranded and branded shipping boxes are made using at least 90% recycled material. Any virgin materials are sourced from sustainably grown forests.
Less-toxic, just as clean.
We only use 100% biodegradable organic solvent for breakdown and reclamation as opposed to cheaper and harmful mineral spirits.
