    How much (if any) customer demand/ interest are you seeing for 'green' signage? I see that some of the suppliers are now putting digital print 'green' media options into their catalogs, and was wondering how much demand there is for that type of product. Thank you for your input.

    Its good for large scale commercial projects. Alot of major corporations are pushing the "green" theme and we are getting requests from these corporations for alternate more green printing materials. I don't think it's highly in demand yet, but I think it will as time passes.

    The only green my customers refer to is how much less of it they have to pay.
    Hate to say it, but other than a few exceptions, I see no current demand.

    Does anyone have a list of eco-friendly products that I can print on? I'd like to know for future reference.

    Depends on your market, when I was in the PacNW we had a huge demand for it. Here in the south, it's not even on the radar.
    Having green media options does broaden your client base though, from government to corporate, there's a market out there. You're in Cali, I guarantee you can sell it there.

  11. Sonoma Graphic Products carries a lot of green substrates. You can check them out at http://www.sgpweb.com/ About half way down the page, they actually have a link to a presentation they have put together on green products.

    I have a green dumpster. The truck that comes to empty is also green. I tell people we use green disposal methods.
