Big3D is committed to promoting and contributing to a clean and safe environment. We will continually monitor and
evaluate all sources of waste generated to determine feasibility of elimination or minimization through recycling,
re-engineering, or process modification. Whatever cannot be eliminated, is recycled or disposed of safely and
responsibly within the scope of existing local and state requirements and recommendations. We believe that
environmental, economic, and social issues are interdependent such that what is good policy in one area, is good in
all three areas.
Specifically, as a printer of plastic and paper substrates, Big3D is proud to print using only UV inks, significantly
reducing facility VOC output as a result. Ultraviolet (UV) inks cure by polymerization on exposure to UV energy.
Because they contain no solvents, they release no VOCs. Additionally, because the inks do not dry on the press, they
can remain in ink fountains for long periods and reduce press cleaning frequency, further reducing facility VOC
As a lenticular graphics provider, we use substrates made of various PET plastics, the most commonly and readily
recyclable plastic material. Large-format lenses such as those used for movie posters, transit shelter displays and
the like, can be ground and shredded for reuse as post-consumer material by most independent and/or industrial
recycling operations. Small-format lenses are also easily recyclable using the same methods, and can be recycled via
most community curb-side recycling programs.
Big3D remains vigilant in the pursuit of lessening the impact of its business operations upon the environment. Big3D
is proudly committed to the protection of the environment and understands the economic and social impacts on the
