Printing & Reprographics


We Are Pleased To Announce

We have added Soy printing ink to our full-color offset printing capabilities. Soy ink has a base derived from natural vegetable sources such Soy seeds as opposed to ink made from petrochemical feed stocks. The new inks are completely free of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which tend to combine with nitrogen oxides in the air to create ground level ozone—a health hazard to plants, animals, and humans. The new ink also reduces the amount of hazardous metals used in certain pigments to traces of less than 10 parts per million.

Also other environmental efforts include use of many recycled papers. Additionally we use a number of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified papers. This designation means the materials in the paper and the process used to make It, follows comprehensive principles and measures developed by foresters, conservationists, and scientists. The certification encourages renewable and sustainable resources and is recognized by leading environmental groups, industry and the US government.

We offer alternative-fiber papers made from sources such as bamboo, sugarcane, kenaf, hemp, and industrial cotton waste; these renewable fiber sources generally grow faster than trees and help reduce the strain on forest products.

Printing & Reprographics and Mail Services believes that using these new inks and papers are environmentally responsible and the right thing to do. As a member of the UCR community, we encourage sustainable and renewable resources that help reduce our carbon footprint.
