What is the difference between FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified and recycled paper?

The FSC was established in 1993 because of concerns over deforestation and has established global guidelines working with foresters to achieve certification. Almost all of the paper we use at Fulprint has a proportion of its content derived from FSC-certified sources (we can tell you exactly, paper by paper). Recycled paper may be from 100% recycled sources or less, and those recycled sources may be post-consumer waste (your old newspapers etc, de-inked), pre-consumer waste (printed matter that is rejected before it reaches the consumer), or mill-broke (off-cuts from the paper mill). The availability of recycled paper types and quality continues to grow – please ask us if you’d like to know more, as we now print regularly on a variety of coated and uncoated recycled papers.
