Burning the midnight LEDs

Burning the midnight LEDs
Much late night wrangling by various political mandarins has finally led to a draft proposal on curbing greenhouse gases. This has been much celebrated even though it’s still to be agreed by the world leaders, let alone actually implemented.
But no matter – this issue is too important to leave to these bureaucrats. It doesn’t really matter if you believe that human activities will lead to climate change or not – we simply don’t have the right to burn through the earth’s resources and pollute the planet for future generations.
Ultimately it’s up to each and every one of us to take responsibility for this. Fortunately, many printers are aware of this, adopting, for example, process-less plates, LED curing and implementing ISO14001, and all without an expenses-paid trip to Paris.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
