JONARTS earned the chain-of-custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) on July 12, 2004. Our certification process ensures that the paper used at JONARTS was manufactured from wood harvested from well-managed forests.
Chain-of-custody is the process of tracking and recording the possession and transfer of this wood from the forest of origin, through the various stages of production, to the end user. In order to use the FSC logo, the product must have flowed through the FSC "chain-of-custody" from the FSC-certified forest, to a paper manufacturer, merchant and finally to a printer like JONARTS, who must all have acquired FSC chain-of-custody certification.
JONARTS commitment to the environment extends beyond our FSC-certification and its 100% use of FSC or PEFC certified papers. Constantly adapting new more "eco-friendly" technologies. Introducing processless, chemical-free computer-to-plate technology, phasing out petroleum-based inks for environmentally harmless soy-based; eliminating alcohol as a solvent; recycling all oils, paper waste generated during the printing process and all wood products, such as pallets and off-cuts.
