 Howard Printing Earns
FSC Chain-of-Custody Certification

March 2011, BRATTLEBORO, VT — Howard Printing, Inc., a local commercial printing company celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, has received chain-of-custody certification (GFA-COC-002105) from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an independent nonprofit organization established in 1993 to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

This certification allows Howard Printing to use FSC-certified paper that carries the FSC trademark, assuring clients that the paper was made from wood harvested from well-managed forests.

According to the FSC website (www.fscus.org), the organization was created in response to conversations between loggers, foresters, environmentalists, and sociologists who wanted to address challenges raised at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio. They wanted to change the dialogue about and the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. Today, the FSC standards for forest management are applied in more than 57 countries. The FSC’s international headquarters are located in Bonn, Germany, and the U.S. office is located in Minneapolis.

Additional steps Howard Printing is taking to reduce its impact on the environment is offsetting the company's electrical use and carbon emissions by purchasing renewable energy credits and carbon offsets through Renewable Choice Energy. Founded in 1991, Colorado-based Renewable Choice Energy (www.renewablechoice.com) is an established leader in renewable energy and carbon mitigation solutions for businesses, and the winner of an EPA Green Power Partner award.

Howard Printing Reduces Environmental Impact

February 2010, BRATTLEBORO, VT — Howard Printing, Inc., is committed to limiting our environmental impact and helping create a more sustainable future for us all. One of the many steps we are taking includes offsetting our electricity use and carbon emissions by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs) and carbon offsets through Renewable Choice Energy, based in Colorado.

Our commitment through Renewable Choice Energy helps to save natural resources; support farmers and ranchers who earn money from leasing their land; reduce our CO2 emissions and clean the air for everyone; reduce our dependence on fossil fuels; generate awareness for supporting clean technology projects; and increase the demand for new projects.

The impact of Howard Printing's action helps to avoid up to 165,020 pounds (75 metric tons) of carbon dioxide emissions from being emitted into the atmosphere. This commitment has a similar impact as 679 fully mature trees planted; 165,020 miles not driven by an average passenger car; and 14 passenger cars off the road for one year.

According to Renewable Choice Energy, "Renewable energy (also referred to as clean energy or green energy) is defined as 'energy derived from resources that are regenerative, or for all practical purposes, cannot be depleted.’ The use of wind, water, and solar power are widespread in developed and developing countries. Yet the mass production of electricity using renewable energy sources has become more commonplace, only recently, reflecting the concern for climate change due to pollution, exhaustion of fossil fuels, and the environmental, social and political risks of fossil fuels and nuclear power.

"Renewable energy credits are a market mechanism that represents the environmental benefits associated with generating electricity from renewable energy sources. A wind farm is credited with one renewable energy credit (REC) for every 1,000 kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity it produces, or 1 megawatt hour (MWh). A certifying agency gives each REC a unique identification number to make sure it doesn't get double-counted. The clean energy is then fed into the national electrical grid. RECs are the industry standard for accounting for renewable energy product. They represent: electricity generated from a renewable resource, and the additional cost and value of renewable energy.

"Carbon offsets are designed to balance out carbon dioxide emissions that are produced by businesses and individuals. Carbon offsets are investments in projects that reduce or prevent a measured amount of emissions from entering the atmosphere. Carbon offsets are purchased by individuals, businesses and governments to take responsibility for carbon emissions produced by electricity consumption, air travel, driving and other carbon-rich activities. Projects that can offset emissions include reforestation and conservation, methane capture and renewable energy."

Founded in 1991, Howard Printing is a full-service commercial printing company providing offset and digital printing, graphic design and desktop publishing services, computer-to-plate prepress technologies, and bindery operations. In addition, Howard Printing is the publisher of the New England Showcase real estate magazine (www.NewEnglandShowcase.com) and two Vermont coloring books.

Howard Printing's Coloring Books Meet CPSIA Safety Regulations

January 19, 2010, BRATTLEBORO, VT — Howard Printing's Brattleboro-produced coloring books — The ABC's of Vermont and Abby in Vermont — meet the safety certification requirements for children 12 years of age or younger, as outlined under the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).

Award Winner

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission's website, the "sweeping new law impacts a broad spectrum of our economy. From manufacturers of toys to the kids that play with them, everyone is affected in some way — even those who make and donate products to hospitals and charities. There are new rules to be understood and adopted for everyone from the largest global manufacturer to the crafter working in the family workshop to the mom-and-pop shop on the corner. Indeed, all children’s products including toys, books, child care articles and clothing are covered in different ways by this law, and there are different rules for different products."

Each entry was judged on its own merit in a category with similarly printed pieces, by a panel of three non-New England printing experts. The judging criteria, which focused on technical quality and print execution, included: registration, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, overall visual impact and bindery.

According to PINE President James Tepper, "Only those printers who produced truly exquisite work were honored. Those printers receiving awards can take pride as being recognized among New England’s finest printers."

Howard Printing Celebrates 15th Anniversary with Expansion of Capabilities

NOVEMBER 2006, BRATTLEBORO, VT — Howard Printing, Inc., a commercial offset printing company celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, continues to grow with the addition of a new 4-color press, complementing last year’s purchase of a computer-to-plate system.

Representing a significant investment that opens up new markets, the purchase of the press enables Howard Printing to offer several key benefits for current and prospective clients, including enhanced 4-color quality, increased capacity for higher quantity, competitive pricing, and greater flexibility for print jobs that need a quick turn-around.

The new press can print two colors on both sides of a sheet simultaneously — a great advantage when producing newsletters or brochures, for example — and can automatically adjust and record ink settings to ensure closer reproduction on reprinted orders.

According to Greg Howard, Brattleboro native and founder of the company, “In the 15 years since launching the company, I have seen rapid and continuous changes in the printing and graphics industry. Technological advancements require almost constant investment in equipment and software to remain effective and competitive. Also, global markets impact our business daily, from the way domestic and international paper mills manufacture and sell their product these days, to the way ‘local’ competition is no longer just around the corner, but includes companies far and wide that have online storefronts.”

Howard Printing originally opened for business on November 21, 1991, at what was then known locally as the "former WTSA building" and is now known as the Top of the Hill Grill on Putney Road. In 1999, Howard purchased and renovated its current facility a few hundred feet up the road. Over the past 15 years, the company has grown from two employees to 17 and from 1,500 square feet to 7,000.

Howard Printing is a full-service printing company providing one- to four-color offset printing, desktop publishing and design services, computer-to-plate prepress technologies, and bindery operations. In addition, Howard Printing is the publisher of New England Showcase, a monthly real estate magazine with three editions representing Vermont and parts of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York, plus an online version found at http://www.newenglandshowcase.com/.
