Graphic designers and their clients are increasingly demanding sustainable solutions. Designers want to address these needs when presenting their work for consideration. As businesses continue to adapt to and provide environmental solutions with their own products, they are demanding it from their creative partners, and designers need to be on the forefront of these initiatives by being well informed. This book provides the information needed to be ahead of the curve on sustainability issues, informs on sustainable applications and approaches the issue of sustainability in the areas of paper, printing, formats, materials, inks, and executions."@en ;
