Outreach and Community Services
Each year, we create a calendar and donate all proceeds to a local non-profit. In the past, it has been THE SANTA FUND c/o New Hampshire Union Leader. This year, we are focused on building resources for Austin17House, a non-profit (501c3) youth and family community center to network with local organizations and individuals who share our vision of providing a safe place for youth to come and be themselves in a safe environment.
The calendar has a "yesterday and today" theme and includes comparison photos of the historic city of Manchester NH from the past, with each image including a current photo of the building or building lot as it is today. Its cost is $8.00 cash, with a 2.5% courtesy fee for credit card use. Click HERE for more info.
At Keystone Press, we care about the environment. We understand that businesses have a special role and responsibility in keeping the planet healthy and green. And we take that responsibility seriously. We are constantly looking for new ways to conserve and promote environmental stewardship within our company and by our suppliers.
Along with recycling all of our waste paper, our main supplier of paper is triple certified by SFI and PEFC.
The Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) program is based on the premise that responsible environmental behavior and sound business decisions can co-exist.
The PEFC Council (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) is an independent, non- profit, non-governmental organization, founded in 1999 which promotes sustainability managed forests through independent third party certification. The PEFC provides an assurance mechanism to purchasers of wood and paper products that they are promoting the sustainable management of forests.
We currently buy our inks from Superior Ink Company. Superior’s inks have always been designed with features that are recognized as “environmentally friendly”.
Keystone Press is currently using a process ink line that contains as much as 26% vegetable oil content and we are at this time testing a line that contains as much as 37% vegetable oil content which is as high a content as anyone in the industry.
Our process inks also have a “stay open” feature. This means that our pressmen never have to “skin” off the top layer of ink before using. This greatly reduces the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of.
Misconceptions of “Soy-Based” inks:
Any plant or vegetable-derived oil can be categorized as a bio-derived, renewable resource. Soybean oil is only one of several plant-derived oils suitable for use in printing inks. In the case of sheet-fed printing inks, there are alternative oils that offer dramatically better performance. In particular, drying oils such as linseed oil and tung oil are especially useful, since these oils have chemical structures that readily oxidize to give a durable printed film. Linseed oil is the most environmentally responsible vegetable oil for sheet-fed inks as it is not suitable for use as a bio-diesel fuel and does not threaten to erode the world’s rain-forests.
Our Pressroom Chemistry:
Keystone Press and it’s suppliers are equally committed to the environment. Our fountain solution has not contained any alcohol since 1995, well before it was an industry standard. We use the lowest VOC press washes that are available to us, continue to recycle our used press wash and all of our press-room rags are professionally cleaned and returned to us to be used again.
