Print It has teamed up with The Premier Paper Group in order to capture the CO2 emissions from our paper purchases by planting native woodland in the UK.
The programme is run through the Woodland Trust using the Woodland Carbon scheme. Woodland Carbon is an accredited, award-winning carbon removal scheme that is operated under the Government’s 2011 Woodland Carbon Code.
The Woodland Trust aims to improve the landscape of Britain by planting more trees and protecting our national heritage of precious ancient woodland. Its vision is a UK rich in native woods and trees enjoyed and valued by everyone and they work to deliver three guiding principles:
To enable the creation of more native woods and places rich in trees.
To protect native woods,trees and their wildlife for the future.
To inspire everyone to enjoy and value woods and trees.
The Trust looks after over 1,200 woodlands which have free and easy access for everyone to enjoy. With a member and supporter base of over 400,000 people its work and influence is growing year on year. We recognise the vital role that the charity plays in securing a sustainable future through trees, improving biodiversity and protecting the habitat of native wildlife.
We look to reduce our environmental impact and mitigate our carbon emissions by funding tree planting with the Woodland Trust. It is estimated that 25m2 of native British woodland captures and stores at least 1 tonne of CO2.
We also have the opportunity to use the Woodland Carbon symbol on any print work that is produced on any of the paper stocks that are within the scheme. Please let us know if you are interested in using the logo on your printed items.
Below is our latest certificate, showing that from April to June we created 13.27m2 of woodland and removed 531kg of CO2.

We can print in full colour and have a very fast turn round time for runs from 50 to 500.

Print IT will be attending the Liphook Business Initiative networking event on Thursday 12th May 2011 at Old Thorns Manor Hotel 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

Of the many ways to reach your customers and directly market your business, print based mailing should not be underestimated. According to the Royal Mail – 92% of print based targeted mail is opened and 48% of UK adults have responded with an enquiry as a result of direct mail.
With the advance of the digital print process it is now easy to produce full colour direct mail fully personalised – direct to your customer. You can go far beyond a simple overprinted name and address: the personalisation can be integrated directly into the design. The variable data can be used to uniquely change the text and the graphical elements of each piece of mail. Personalisation benefits your marketing campaign because it allows you to engage your customers directly in a way that a ‘cold’ unaddressed door drop would not.
Making sure that the campaign is targeted to the right audience is necessary in order to maximise response rates. The quality of the data is also key to the success of any campaign: a clean database is essential. We have all at some time received wrongly addressed and incorrectly named marketing. This along with duplicated deliveries can be detrimental in any campaign.
Print it can help you to devise your campaign, design the artwork, and using our digital presses produce the final mailing. We can even fulfil the deployment of the campaign with our mailing service.
On the 9th November, Print IT were invited to Bohunt School in Liphook to offer guidance and advice at their annual careers fair.
