We want digital printing to be more environmentally friendly!

Digital printing by Semios

The Semios Rennes agency was awarded the Imprim’Vert label for digital printing.

This is proof of Semios’ commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its manufacturing process.

Semios has specific expertise in digital printing. We use digital printing for a wide range of projects: decoration, facade and window displays, vehicle wrapping, signage, etc.

Digital printing provides a high quality result that is extremely long lasting.

However, this technique requires the use of products that have an impact on the environment. The Imprim’Vert Label aims to reduce this impact while raising employee and customer awareness of the processes involved.

What is the Imprim’Vert label?

Imprim’Vert promotes the implementation of actions by printing companies that help reduce the environmental impact of their business.

The Imprim’Vert label was created in 1998 by two professional associations, the Chambre de Métiers et de l’Artisanat du Loir-et-Cher and the Chambre Régionale de Métiers et de l’Artisanat du Centre. The Pôle d’Innovation de l’Imprimerie (P2i) took over responsibility for the label in 2007.

Imprim’Vert has developed gradually and has acquired national and even European coverage since 2008.
