Recycled Polyester

Recycled Polyester Options

100% Recycled Polyester Yarn can be used to produce your woven labels. Full tractability is available upon request. We can provide you with details of where the yarn is produced and details of what it is made from. Cost of labels on small runs is approximately 15% higher than non recycled, however on larger runs the cost is the same.

Organic Cotton

Organic Cotton Options

Organic cotton farming is carried out globally. Farm land is treated to remove any toxins and sufficient time is given to cleanse the land. Fertilizers and pesticides are not used and the cotton plants are not genetically modified. The process is reduces pollution and water contamination due to removing the chemicals and pesticides from the growing process. Grown globally also helps reduce the carbon footprint. We can produce your branded woven labels using organic cotton. It is a skin friendly material and is certified.

Recycled Paper

Recycled Paper Swing Tickets

Swing tickets and packaging produced using recycled papers or sources from sustainable forests. Recycled paper does not have to look ‘recycled’ with a flecked effect and a grainy feel. Different finishes, colours and applications can be produced on recycled paper. If you have specific designs and finishes that you are trying to achieve then please contact us to discuss. Some of the products that we offer made from recycled paper includes: Swing Tickets & Hang Tags, Overriders, Packaging Boxes, Paper Branding & Display Branding.


Bamboo Options

Bamboo is both a sustainable and renewable alternative for making paper.  As compared with traditional wood sources, bamboo is ready for harvest after 2 to 3 years while traditional wood materials take 5 to 8 years.  Additionally, bamboo doesn’t require replanting after harvesting, reducing the time to harvest as well as helping to save the environment. Top benefits of using bamboo for your tickets:

  • Natural colour bamboo paper doesn’t need to be bleached, so it uses fewer chemical products during the production process
  • Bamboo is a quickly renewable resource – it is the fastest growing plant on the planet and reaches maturity in 3 to 5 years of less and when it is cut, the stem is left in the soil to sprout a new shot and start the growing process again
  • Bamboo paper is recyclable
  • Bamboo provides jobs and economic development

Agricultural Straw

Agricultural Straw Options

Agricultural straw is an environmentally friendly alternative source for making paper.  Improved technologies have enabled the scalable production of paper using this alternative source to wood.  It helps reduce waste by using surplus straw from agriculture thus reducing the reliance on trees. Top benefits of using straw for your tickets:

  • A large volume of fibre is available on an annual basis
  • Straw is easy to pre-process and has greater uniformity than wood
  • Chemical pulps can be produced from straw by relatively mild treatments
  • Straw fibres are easily accessible to bleaching chemicals
  • Straw requires only low energy mechanical treatment to produce fibres
  • Straws’ thin-walled, low coarseness fibres are well suited for papermaking
  • Straw fibres have a good printability and ink receptivity. The high hemicellulose and low lignin content should make straw pulps suitable for specific applications such as tissue-making or papermaking with enhanced fibre bonding

Stone Paper

Stone Paper is made from crushed stone rather than from wood pulp. The raw material it’s made with is waste from stone quarries. As well as being an alternative material that preserves rainforests, the production of this paper also uses less water and energy and releases less CO2. The top benefits are:

  • Water is not used in the production of stone paper. To produce 100kg of standard paper, 3500 litres of water is used.
  • Production of stone paper takes only 15% of the energy that standard paper uses.
  • 67% less CO2 is released during production.
  • The paper is totally waterproof and fluid resistant.
  • It’s durable and can withstand water, grease and dirt.

Vegetable Ink and Recycled Leather

Vegetable inks are a great substitute for petroleum-based ink. They are environmentally friendly whilst achieving great colouring. These can be used to print swing tickets and other paper-based products. 

Recycled Leather – all the best characteristics of this natural product using recycled items.

Please contact us to discuss recycled leather or vegetable based inks in detail.  

Biodegradable Plastics

Made using substances such as cornstarch to dramatically reduce the environmental impact. Opting for a biodegradable plastic is a huge step and something that needs to be discussed in detail to ensure that all your requirements can be met.

100% Recycled Low-density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Recycled LDPE is a material which is sourced from pre-consumer plastic waste.  This waste would otherwise end up in landfill and therefore is a sustainable alternative to standard plastic. This material is also recyclable after use. We have factory certified declaration. MOQ’s are 10,000 pieces, contact us to find out more.    

Sustainable Questions
