At first, I was using a product called Tyvek which was durable, allowed non-toxic inks, was made with 25% Post-consumer material, was itself 100% recyclable and didn’t require lamination. I’ve had a few issues. Some clients went ahead and laminated the charts themselves, which destroyed the material and that creates waste. Mounting was also a challenge, as Tyvek would slowly wrinkle in reaction to tape or glue. Plus, the production costs were almost triple which makes the charts less accessible to clients.
If you purchased products between 2010 and Dec 2017, you would have received a chart printed on Tyvek. I’m no longer using this material but still stand behind it as a viable green solution.
Tyvek is a strong microfiber material where thousands of super fine plastic fibers are fused together to give this product incredible strength and durability not to mention it’s amazing organic look since you can see these fine fibers in the finished printed product (see image on left). Eco-friendly, Tyvek is made with 25% Post-consumer material and is itself 100% recyclable.
