Four of the most sought after "Down to Earth(TM)" topics are available as co-branding templates with offset and digital artwork provided.

"Printers and many other customers can differentiate themselves from the competition and show their sustainability savvy by taking advantage of this co-branding opportunity," said Teri Shanahan, IP's vice president, Commercial Printing. "Our goal is to get the right environmental messages to as many people as possible so they can continue to feel great about using paper and print.
