You HAD to know that today's blog would be green and totally eco-friendly.

At Heritage we're committed to reducing, reusing and recycling whenever and wherever possible!

Vegetable oil based inks can be made from a variety of sources including soy-bean, corn and linseed oils. By replacing mineral oil with vegetable oil, this means we can reduce or even cut out volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions. VOCs are carbon-containing gases and vapors that are released from solvents used during the printing process. The most significant environmental impact of VOCs is their formation with vehicle exhaust to form photochemical smog. However, in liquid form VOCs can effect water and soil quality. This is why we have opted to use vegetable oil based inks. Pretty cool, huh?

When it comes to protecting and preserving our environmental resources, perhaps no other organization is as well known and respected worldwide than FSC. Heritage is proud to be FSC certified and to support other FSC certified products and companies. Being FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified gives Heritage customers the choice to print on paper that originates in responsibly managed forests.
As a Chain of Custody certified printer, Heritage is entitled to apply the FSC's "checkmark-and-tree" trademark logo (see below) to projects printed on FSC-certified paper. Heritage is only the third printer in Oklahoma to achieve certification.

The FSC Chain of Custody certification reflects Heritage's commitment to environmentally friendly manufacturing practices and provides our customers an additional option to help reduce the environmental impact of their printed materials. Our customers can be confident that when they ask for FSC certified paper, they will receive it!

At Heritage we recycle all waste paper including office paper and all aluminum plates as well.

There are many ways your business can GO GREEN as well! Things like...

• Recycling paper, plastic, aluminum, ink cartridges.
• Reuse packing materials and cardboard boxes.
• Eliminate disposable cups, plates and utensils in the break room. Replace with permanent dishware.
• Switch to rechargeable batteries. Large office supply stores even have collection centers for recycling dead rechargeable batteries.
• Use eco-friendly cleaning products that are biodegradable and non-toxic.
• Purchase energy-efficient PCs, printers, and other equipment with the EnergyStar label.
• Donate or recycle old computers and equipment.
• Keep up with regular maintenance of all mechanical equipment.

Finally, I'll leave you with this St. Patrick's Day picture that has absolutely NOTHING to do with going green, recycling, or the environment. I found it online while googling the word "green"(lesson learned: be careful what you google!) Apparently it was taken in 1987 at the St. Patrick's day parade in New York. Wow. This picture is disturbing on SO many levels, but yet you can't stop looking at it, can you?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We love this guy…

and so will you!

Jerry Funck worked for Heritage in various roles for over 18 years. Unfortunately in 2008 he had to step down from his position with Heritage, due to his battle with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) disease. AS is a severe form of arthritis that causes inflammation of the joints between the spinal bones and causes joints to fuse together.

At Heritage, we consider Jerry family and knew this year, our golf tournament needed to benefit him. Proceeds will help cover his monthly medications and other medical expenses.

Jerry’s daughter Rachael Funck Chambless, grew up watching her dad work at Heritage and she knew when she grew up she wanted to work at Heritage too! (Okay maybe that’s not how the story went, but she works here now and loves it too!) Anyone who knows them only has good things to say about them. Jerry & Rachael are both sweet, kind, caring, funny, and they mean so much to us at Heritage!

We just help tell the story...

The 2010 Addy Awards Gala was this weekend at the Skirvin Hotel. The Addy's recognize the best creative efforts in the Oklahoma City metro area over the last year. It was a night filled with laughter, fun, cheers, wine, and then more laughter.

The design team at Oklahoma Christian handled the creative to promote the 2010 Addy's. The theme was "We are the Storytellers", and it was perfect! They deserve an Addy for the Addy's. Is that possible? It should be.

Curtis and his wife, Lisa, couldn't stay the entire evening because Curtis wasn't feeling well. (You KNOW Curtis isn't feeling well when he gives away drink tickets!!) Poor guy.

Bad lighting and poor camera operation caused Laurie, Eric and Julie to look angelic in this picture...

My husband (total trooper) came with me for the evening. He wore his funeral tie, I'm not gonna lie, it's his wedding tie too! He hates to dress up. If he can't wear Vans he's not happy, but he sat there and acted happy...maybe it was the Corona talking, I'm not sure.

My favorite quote of the evening was "The Addy Awards is 2 hours worth of awards stretched out over 4 hours!" So, so true.

We'd like to congratulate all our customers who won!

Heritage printed projects for...

3 Bronze Winners

9 Silver Winners


9 Gold ADDY Award Winners!

We were so excited!! Congratulations to all our customers that took home awards...Oklahoma Christian, Third Degree Advertising, Chickasaw Nation, S Design, Ackerman McQueen, Ghost, Visual Image, & Studio fj!! Thank you for letting us HELP TELL YOUR STORY!
