As a leader in the local printing industry, we do what we can to set an example. Especially when making business decisions that are good for the environment.
With LEED accredited professionals on staff, we're making a conscious effort to adopt more sustainable and integrated design practices. As a result, we generate our own energy, utilize environmentally friendly inks and offer greener print material options

In 2009, we were proud to become the first solar-powered printer in the islands. Our impressive array of 312 individual 305-watt SunPower Photovoltaic (PV) modules spans across our roof, producing over 135,000 kilowatt-hours of pure sun-based power. Enough to run our presses for months. Plus, any extra power that's not used — like on a weekend — goes back onto the grid. Rolling our meters backwards. And helping the rest of Hawaii move forward.
Being green goes beyond just sun powered printing. Our latex inks produce durable, odorless prints with sharp, vivid image quality, no hazardous air pollutants (HAP) and extremely low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Another great advantage is that any projects printed on recyclable vinyl on our latex printer can be recycled through the HP Large Format Media Take-Back Program. Just visit their website and fill out the form. Within a few days someone will come by to pick up your prints and make sure they're disposed of properly. It's that easy.
For quality prints you can feel good about, latex printing is the way to go.
