Following are some of the environmental actions we have taken to help preserve our mother earth...


100% Recycled Paper; For more than 65 years we have used papers to make an elegant first impression. DSJ has expanded all it's lines to include more weights, colors and textures that are both recycled and FSC certified. Because we strive to use papers that are made with post-consumer recycled waste and non-polluting wind-generated electricity, you'll be making a positive impression on the environment, as well as your customers.


100% Green Power; we spend extra to be sure the power we use is clean and green. We pay Clean Power Alliance for top-tier 100% green power. We have also retrofitted all of our lighting to 5000K LEDs for less power consumption as well as correct color viewing throughout our plant. This is a win-win, secure a cleaner environment for future generations and get consistently accurate and very good-looking color!


Our new digital Hi-speed presses, use only 1 or 2 sheets for make ready. They monitor color on every sheet to ensure quality and consistency while reducing waste. They use wax based toner and no liquid chemical solutions that have to be cleaned or drained which is just one more step in keeping our environment clean.


We use vegetable-based organic pigmented inks, for all of our traditional offset printed jobs.

Chemical FREE direct-to-plate technology. This process uses lasers to burn your image directly onto the plate material which keeps toxic chemicals, like those used in most plate-setters and film-setters, from being released into the environment. This also increases the quality of the final product and reduces the turnaround time on any of our traditional offset printing jobs. View Video Here.

Completely recycled wash water & waste ink. All of our rags and uniforms are washed at a state-of-the-art facility that uses a process that recycles the dirty wash water and detergents. Even the air is filtered on it’s way out of the facility. Our waste ink is recycled and used to produce thermal energy in a process that releases zero pollutants into our environment.


We re-use most wrapping and boxes. Any wrapping or boxes we receive from our vendors is collected and reused to pack and ship our own products.
