Paper Selections

PrintForest offers its customers the most sustainable paper choices on the market today. To make your paper even more restorative for the planet, PrintForest works with partners to plant trees to offset your paper use. Learn more about our tree program at Plant Trees.

Choose FSC® Chain-of-Custody certified & sustainable paper
Between the forest and the final user, paper may undergo many stages of processing, manufacturing and distribution. All PrintForest papers are Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain-of-Custody certified. This certification is the most stringent, tracing the path of products from forests through the supply chain and verifying that FSC®-certified material is used throughout by harvesters, processors, manufacturers, distributors and printers. Additionally, PrintForest uses 100% certified renewable energy for its printing operations, and some of its paper selections are manufactured with 100% renewable energy.

Many PrintForest paper options meet additional sustainability and recycled content standards. When selecting paper, customers have the option of having these certifications printed on their materials. See how our Sustainability certifications will showcase your environmental efforts.
