These Days everyone is talking about Going Green. Green cars, green energy, green shopping bags. So how can we go green in the printing industry? What prodcuts are green and exactly how green are they.
One of the big indicators of “Green” or not is print process. There are mainly 2 print processes you can use. UV or Solvent Ink. The Green way to go is to to use UV Ink. Solvent inks release toxic chemicals into the air. They also have a higher propensity for the ink product itself to run. The other ways that is to UV(ulta violet) Ink. By using UV. your print will not fade as fast, they are not toxic and the ink will not run. This print process is great for outdoors printing.
When people say they have green products find out how they are considered green. One Huge Green Product right now are Biodegradable banners. They are built to decompose quickly under landfill conditions. Also 123Decal.com now prints GREEN stickers, labels and decals. We offer a full selction of Custom Decals that are printed with UV ink and some that are printed with 100% post consumer product. How about and organic cotton t-shirt.
What are the business practices of the company who is selling “Green” Prodcuts? I like to think about how much they print on paper as a good indicator? Do they print catalogs, mail invoices, and keep file cabinents full of paper work that would have all fit on a simple flash drive?
What do you think? If we can shouldnt we try to help the enviorment?
Especially with the ever growing presence of the web. Do I really need a catalog… A perfect example is the phone. The other day 2 different phone companies brought me phone books. I felt bad…I dont need or want either. When was the last time you used a phone book?

Earlier this evening I was at the local mall with my wife and daughter. While getting the stroller out of the car, I noticed that there was a bubble in one of the small decals I had on my car window. I then attributed the bubble to the recently frosty weather in Idaho.
Vinyl, Pressure Sensative Decals I then took a moment to push the decal back down to hopefully fixed the bubble. Then The DECAL CRACKED!!! I was furious, now my snowboarding decal was ruined, I asked myself how it was possible.
I left the car and started to walk into the nearest store thinking “I sure hope that doesnt happen to any 123Decal Customers” my next thought was. No, it won’t happen to our customers, we use Pressure Sensitive Vinyl and UV Ink on our Vinyl and Static Cling Decals.
So Customers of 123Decal have nothing to worry about. Our Decals whethe Double Sided Decals, Static Cling Or Regular Vinyl decals are printed with UV Ink and the vinyl decals are printed on Pressure sensitive vinyl. No worries!

Over the past week, 123Decal.com has seen a tremendous amount of question about the Application of Custom decals, Primarly Static Cling Decals vs. Vinyl Decals
When thinking about whether you need static cling or vinyl decals there are a few factors to consider:
Static Cling Decals, Window Decals
1- Window Tint – Window Decals or Static Cling decals usually would be placed on the inside of the window and will be viewable to the outsite world. If you have tint on your car windows in may imped on the visibility of the decal, many areas that are hot or warm yearround usually have a high propensity to have tinted windows in cars and thus it may not be a good idea.
Outside Vinyl Decals
2- Outside or Inside
– Many people are looking for a Removable Decal, which a static cling decal or window decal can be. But 123Decal.com Does not recommend using a standard cling on the outside of a moving car. They may blow away. Some people say that if you apply a static cling decal with windex that it will stay on.. I wouldnt risk it. If you plan to use a decal on the outside of a moving car we recommend a vinyl decal or removable vinyl decal.
All in all we do print our Decals with UV INK, which is not only enviornmentally friendly but also it’s a great product that holds up against weather and wont fade
