How We Print
Sustainable Printing Business Is Savvy Business
A commitment to sustainability is at the core of our business. And although trees are a renewable resource, a stewardship approach is necessary to preserve and protect forest lands for future generations.
Hudson Printing makes available many options for use of Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®) certified paper. This means you can have a positive environmental impact AND extremely high-quality print. Ask about available FSC papers for your next project.
The links on the right side of this page lead to more detail on the sustainability practices of key Hudson Printing partners.
Beyond sustainable forestry and responsibly sourced papers, we believe that sustainable print is ALSO about not printing things that don’t create value. About not printing things that will end up stashed in a warehouse for a year or two, only to be eventually thrown away.
Hudson Printing can help you with strategic planning and innovative alternatives to make your print both more valuable and highly sustainable.

Heatset Web Offset Printing
Offset lithography has been around since the 19th century but that doesn’t mean we still use the same technology. Offset lithography has come a long ways since then.
One of the important functions in the printing process is prepress production. This stage makes sure that all files are correctly processed in preparation for printing. This includes converting to the proper CMYK color model, finalizing the files, and creating plates for each color of the job to be run on the press.
Offset lithography is one of the most common ways of creating printed materials. A few of its common applications include: newspapers, magazines, brochures, stationery, and books. Compared to other printing methods, offset printing is best suited for economically producing large volumes of high quality prints in a manner that requires little maintenance.
- consistent high image quality;
- quick and easy production of printing plates;
- cost savings – Offset printing is the cheapest method for producing high quality prints in commercial printing quantities;
- and the ability to adjust the color and quality.
