Dear Print Buyer,
I’d like to tell you about an important initiative that Print Buyers Online.com is undertaking on behalf of print buying organizations to help our industry’s economic recovery and to promote environmental sustainability. On July 19, 2010 at the ninth annual Print Oasis Print Buyers Conference in Washington, DC, Print Buyers Online.com will be unveiling legislation that will be presented to congress starting on Wednesday, July 21 that can save your company hundreds of thousands of dollars a year or more on print. This legislation proposes that any print project that is bought in an environmentally sustainable way is eligible for refunds of state sales taxes by the Federal government.
To determine the cost savings for your company, you only need to calculate the percentage of print jobs that meet sustainable standards (can be recycled, include 15% or more PCW, are printed on paper that is legally harvested, etc*) and then calculate the sales tax of those jobs, to appreciate the enormous cost-savings.
Even for those of you whose companies are now just considering buying sustainable print, you’ll want to learn how to be a part of this effort and make an immediate impact from the onset of your company’s program.
If there were ever a time to invest in a conference, this is it. We have many other sessions that are important to your education but this legislative intensive truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The value from this alone is well worth the conference fee. Never before has there been a time where so many legislative issues have affected the print industry. We will teach you the impact this has on your company, what your options are, how to petition congress, and of course, how to take advantage of the specific legislation that we are introducing so that you can save your company significant money without cutting corners, all while protecting the environment.
What have you done to be part of the solution? Please join us and make it happen – for you, your company and the environment? Make the commitment. Register Now!
