Company Overview

We provide an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional offset printing with competitive prices and superior quality. Warren’s Waterless Printing is a pioneer in the industry and has received more accreditations and coveted awards for its proven leadership in environmental stewardship than any other printer in Canada. As Canada’s only dedicated waterless printer, Warren’s is able to provide a printing solution from conception in prepress right through to the finishing and bindery stages. There is much more to being environmentally friendly than providing recycled papers and vegetable inks. Our process utilizes three critical initiatives below. Waterless Printing Presses We eliminate the use of vast amounts of water and the need to dispose of tainted water. Select Recycled Papers We recommend using truly recycled paper, like Forest Stewardship Council® certified paper. Renewable Power Source Our entire facility is Bullfrog powered, using a sustainable, renewable energy source to power our printing operation. Utilizing proven technology for prepress production and proofing, and fully dedicated waterless presses with perfecting capabilities, Warren’s offers a wide range of prepress solutions for both PC and Mac formats.

Green Products Or Services

Service Name: Environmental Printing

Description: Please see our company description and website for more information.

How this green product or service differ than the industry norm: Traditional printing requires the use of a dampening system to support the ink on the plates. Waterless printing uses a hybrid plate that supports ink without the use of a dampener. This eliminates the need for chemical additives and dampening solutions, eliminating the use of up to 80,000 litres of water that would be used by a single traditional 40″ press. With minimal dot gain, Waterless printing can use a higher line screen. Combined with better register control and a wider colour range, the result is sharper impressions with more depth and better colour consistency.

Certified or verified by an independent third party: Since 2011, Warren’s has offset 92 tonnes of CO2 emissions to achieve certified carbon-neutral status. Warren’s Waterless has also been certified by the City of Toronto as a Zero-Discharge facility.
