Chicago Architecture: Our 17-Color 2014 Calendar

We may have gone a little overboard with this year’s Schneider Graphics calendar, but we couldn’t be happier with the result.

The 2014 calendar features Chicago architecture and was printed using 17 colors. Yes, you read that right — 4-color process, 2 PMS colors and 11 metallic PMS colors. And, a spot gloss varnish thrown in for good measure.

The beautiful photography, the elaborate printing and of course our attention to detail helped create a piece that we’re really proud of.

It’s not too late to get a copy. Just ask us!

What does our FSC® certification mean?

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is an organization that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. It’s members include stakeholders who rely on forest resources, but want to make sure they are used in an environmental and sustainable fashion. Only seven percent of the world’s productive forests are FSC certified.

Obviously, we go through a lot of paper. But we don’t believe in being wasteful. And, we want to make sure this renewable resource is well-protected for generations to come.

As a commercial printer with FSC certification, we are part of the “chain of custody” that ensures FSC standards have been used from the time a tree is logged until your printed material arrives at your doorstep. We are regularly audited to make sure we are meeting their high standards.

If you use FSC certified paper and an FSC certified printer (us of course!), it entitles you to add the FSC logo to your next print piece (we just have to submit it for an easy approval process).

Several of our customers are already doing this, but if you need more information, just ask!
