Title:Pollution Prevention: Working with Suppliers
Author(s):MacFadden, Todd; Vogel, Michael P.
Subject(s):Printing industry -- Pollution prevention
Abstract:Suppliers and vendors are usually the first place printers go for technical advice or troubleshooting. But this does not necessarily mean that suppliers and vendors have all the right answers, or necessarily even the right products for you. There are thousands of suppliers in this region. There is no reason you should settle for a given supplier just because of proximity. Some printers find that working with out-of-state suppliers is more appropriate for them. By the same token, local suppliers can be knowledgeable and adaptive provided that you -- their customers -- create a demand for a given service. The fact sheets in this packet provide a wide variety of pollution prevention suggestions. Some of the techniques or process modifications highlighted are leading edge technologies that some supplier may not yet be familiar with. By working closely with suppliers locally and far away, you will be better informed, and suppliers and vendors will have incentives to adapt their product lines and services to meet the changing needs of the industry.
