International Print Day is today – the grassroots campaign was created to promote print as an environmentally and socially responsible way of communicating. Print Day has 4 main aims: Dispel the myths about print Prove print is a viable, advantageous, and powerful mode of communication Advocate print as intrinsic to human nature; evoking emotions and providing a tactile experience Promote the coupling of print with digital communications to provide a truly integrated approach that allows information to be accessed both with and without a device Myths About Print Printing is actually considerably more sustainable and environmentally-friendly than people initially assume.
