myth or fact: making paper always destroys forests

As members of Two Sides Australia we are passionate about paper and the printing industry and we want to share researched facts and help "explode the myths" about the industry and share how sustainable print and paper really is. Myth or Fact? making paper always destroys forests. Two Sides Australia provide us with these statistics:

AUSTRALIA'S FORESTRY PLANTATIONS DOUBLED IN SIZE FROM ABOUT ONE MILLION HECTARES IN 1994 TO TWO MILLION HECTARES IN 2010.

The Changing Face of Australia's Forests - Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (Bureau of Rural Sciences). Australia's Forests at a Glance - Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences

It is estimated that there are 25% more trees in the developed world today than in 1900. (8)

EUROPEAN FORESTS HAVE EXPANDED BY OVER 30% SINCE 1950 (1) AND ARE INCREASING BY 1.5 MILLION FOOTBALL FIELDS EVERY YEAR - AN AREA ALMOST THREE TIMES THE SIZE OF THE AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY OR FOUR TIMES THE SIZE OF LONDON! (2)

90% of deforestation is caused by unsustainable agricultural practices.' Underlying causes of deforestation, World Rainforest Movement; UN FAO

'The paper industry is a relatively small user of wood. Of the wood extracted from the world's forests, 53% is used for energy production, 28% is used by sawmills and only around 11% is used directly by the paper industry.'
FAO Statistics 2007

12 million australians say catalogues most useful media

As members of Two Sides Australia, The Print Group Australia would like to share some interesting statistics about printed catalogues in Australia. Kellie Northwood from Two Sides Australia, writes about how over 12 million Australians say Catalogues are the most useful media for providing information on what to buy in one or more product categories. In fact, Catalogues remain the number one go-to media source for groceries, clothes, toys, alcohol and cosmetics, the latest media data from Roy Morgan Research shows.

Almost half of Australians 14+ (49%) cite Catalogues as the Media Most Useful when purchasing groceries—more than double the number saying the Internet is handiest (20%). Catalogues also have a strong advantage when it comes to consumers wanting to buy alcoholic beverages (42% vs 22% for Internet), children’s wear (40% vs 25%), toys (39% vs 31%), cosmetics and toiletries (36% vs 26%) and clothing and fashion (35% vs 28%).

what is cello glazing?

Cello glazing is a common finishing option in printing, but not everyone knows what it is. Commonly used on business cards, presentation folders and booklet covers, it offers a high quality finish to your printed jobs.

Available in both gloss and matt options, cello glazing offers a professional look and feel to the finished product by adhering a thin sheet of film using heat and pressure. It has a smooth, silky feeling and also offers added protection and durability to your print job that is very difficult to remove. Not to be confused with spot uv, cello glazing typical covers the entire surface area of a printed product.

Often referred to as “cello” there are benefits to both the matt and gloss options.
