Hamilton Publications Sustainability Practices

Hamilton's high-volume, high-end publications printed off-campus are now Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, printed on recycled paper stock containing post-consumer waste (PCW). FSC certification is the "gold standard" in printing and sustainability. In order to be FSC certified, the publication must follow a stringent "chain-of-custody" from the forest, to the paper manufacturer, to the paper merchant, to the printer. Each vendor must go through the extensive FSC certification process.

Letterhead/Envelopes

Hamilton letterhead, envelopes and business cards are printed in-house on Strathmore Writing Recycled, a 30 percent post-consumer waste (PCW), process chlorine-free (PCF) paper stock. Strathmore paper stock is manufactured locally by Mohawk Fine Papers, a family-owned mill located in Cohoes, N.Y. Mohawk is the largest purchaser of wind power in the industry, procuring 100 percent of its electricity from emission-free wind power.

All Other In-House Print Pieces

The Hamilton College Print Shop uses paper stock that is at least 30 percent recycled process chlorine-free (PCW-PCF) for brochures, flyers, cards, invitations and posters.

Copy Paper

All copy paper used in copiers and printers across campus is 100 percent recycled (PCW, PCF).
