We Are a FSC Certified Printer

What is FSC?

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international certification and labeling system for paper and wood products that come from responsibly managed and verified recycled sources.


Under FSC certification, forests are certified against a set of strict environmental and social standards, and fibre from certified forests is tracked all the way to the consumer through the chain of custody certification system.

It is also the only certification system that is supported by environmental groups like WWF, Greenpeace, and the Sierra Club of Canada.

Why Use a FSC Certified Printer?

Through the process of becoming a FSC certified printer, Heartland Printing & Graphics has demonstrated our commitment to healthy forests and responsible business practices.

Will My Print Jobs Cost More?

No. Although we are a FSC certified printer, our price to you is the same or less than other printers, demonstrating that environmental stewardship can be cost effective and profitable.

How Do I Know This Is Real?

To become a FSC certified printer, we had to adhere to a stringent set of standards and be vetted by the Forest Stewardship Council of Canada http://www.fsccanada.org/.


The result of this is our certification code: SW-COC-003044

How the FSC approval process works

As a customer of Heartland Printing & Graphics, you are entitled to use the FSC logo on any FSC certified paper stocks, provided that the printing is done by Heartland Printing & Graphics, because Heartland Printing & Graphics is the FSC certified printer of record.

Before printing your item that has the FSC logo on it, the final layout approved by you the customer, must be emailed by Heartland Printing & Graphic to the FSC Certification Board along with all paper stock specifics.

The FSC Certification Board will inform Heartland Printing & Graphics within one business day as to whether or not they find your item acceptable to use the FSC logo. Once approved by them we can then schedule your project for printing.

Important Notes:

If the FSC trademarks are used on sales invoices or delivery note templates, they must include the following statement: "Only the products that are identified as such on this document are FSC certified."
The FSC trademarks may not be used at the top of letterhead templates.
When the paper used is FSC-certified, it is an option to use an on-product FSC label in lieu of or in addition to the elements above.
When the promotional material is very small (such as a business card) or on corporate promotional products, your certification code may be used alone or in combination with any of the above elements. For example, just the FSC logo with your certification code may be used, without the copyright claim and promotional statement. At the very minimum, your certification code must always be included.

FSC Logo Examples

FSC logos are available in different styles to fit the needs of your project. The following are some examples of FSC logos that would be used depending on the project. Logos are also available in French.
