Denver Colorado-based PrintReleaf has announced that printers can now offer print buyers a low-cost, hassle-free alternative to traditional chain-of-custody sustainability approaches. Commenting on the announcement, PrintReleaf Founder and CEO Jordan Darragh said, “For the first time, commercial printers, label converters and packaging vendors have available to them and their customers a sustainability solution that is significantly less expensive and easier to implement than the chain-of-custody solutions available today. Chain-of-custody sustainability solutions require printers to maintain detailed records and can be used with only a limited number of substrates. PrintReleaf, on the other hand, eliminates expensive record keeping and enables the print customer to select any paper-based substrate. And while chain-of-custody solutions merely assure customers that the paper used in their project has been harvested from a sustainable forest, PrintReleaf warrants that the paper used is reforested back into the natural environment. Print customers selecting PrintReleaf to reforest their paper consumption may select from any of seven forests around the world in need of reforestation.”

PrintReleaf creates a global sustainability standard by certifiably guaranteeing to releaf the paper consumption of PrintReleaf customers. PrintReleaf is the only technology platform that measures customers’ paper usage and certifiably reforests that usage on an equivalent basis. The patented PrintReleaf technology not only tracks paper consumption, but also monitors PrintReleaf reforestation partners to ensure fulfillment. Market-leading companies with a passion for the environment and a progressive concern for advancing environmental stewardship, together with their customers, rely on PrintReleaf to provide a nexus of partnerships involving forestry, technology and business.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
