2021 GEAs Environmentally Sound Materials Description

About the Best of Category winner:

Arandell, Menomonee Falls, WI, for YETI Fall-Winter 20:

The YETI Fall-Winter 20 catalog was printed using 50# Rolland Opaque Smooth for body pages and 100# Rolland Opaque Smooth for cover stock. Both are FSC-certified and use 30 percent post-consumer waste materials in the paper production process, meaning at least 30 percent of the materials used to make these stocks are from consumer recycled paper materials. At Arandell, we use soy-based inks that contain as much soy content as possible, without impacting the overall quality of the ink itself. Soy-based inks are much more environmentally friendly than traditional petroleum-based inks in part because the ink can be broken down much quicker when it comes time for the paper substrate to be recycled. In addition, this particular piece was printed on a press that has a dryer that recycles and runs off of the fumes from the burn-off of the ink.
