IOC PRINT, historical player in poster production
An organization focused on quality, safety and the environment
At IOC PRINT, social and environmental responsibility is not an empty word but a true state of mind with an organization largely rooted in development, environmental respect and continuous improvement. That's why our company is committed, and invests in this framework, in an environmental approach to ensure the implementation and respect of environmentally friendly working methods, throughout our production process.
IOC PRINT and innovation
The teams at IOC PRINT are part of a continuous improvement process for all stages of the manufacturing process. We are constantly on active standby about the evaluation of new printable media and the use of more and more eco-friendly products in order to be able to offer our customers specific offers 100% "green", without being to the detriment of the quality of our productions.
100% recycled paper posters
Since 2014, a real initiative, in a LAB / Innovation style, has been deployed within the production units to test possible changes in the production process, particularly by promoting the most "green" materials and media possible.
To this end, with the manufacturers of paper, tarpaulins and also inks, recurring tests are carried out to evaluate the extent to which 100% recycled materials can be offered to market players while guaranteeing quality and reliability of the rendering.
IOC PRINT is now able to offer the production of poster campaigns on 100% recycled paper for the formats bus shelter (118.5 x 175 cm) and 8m² drop-down (320 x 240 cm). Thanks to the upstream work carried out to adapt the print parameters as well as real-life tests carried out in partnership with the main the main outdoor advertising companies, we are able to guarantee a quality rendering identical to that on "classic" papers.
At IOC PRINT, we are all engaged and we communicate regularly on our environmental strategy, both internally, with our employees, and externally, with our customers and suppliers, to involve and sensitize all stakeholders.
This offer on 100% recycled paper fits naturally into this dynamic and we hope to see it develop in the world of large format communication.
