As a second generation family business, Fast proof Press embrace the 'green' message and have implemented countless initiatives to become a leader in the field. Today we are using 89% less chemicals than we were five years ago. In our state of the art factory, a number of processes have been adopted to ensure we are 'green'. In fact, some of these have been in used by Fast Proof Press for almost ten years, including;

• Full paper, cardboard and timber pallet recycling
• Plate and plastic drum recycling
• Water recycling units on presses
• Dry, chemical FREE plate making
• Vegetable and soy-based inks.

We encourage all our clients to consider recycled paper products, alcohol free and waterless digital printing for their projects. We have taken it upon ourselves to provide our customers with our very own FSC Certified commodity stock range, Majestic. Ask us for a sample swatch and we would be happy to explain it to you when organising your next print job!
Overall Fast Proof Press is committed to the environment and welcomes any opportunity to improve the efficiencies of our print production.
