WE UNPRINT. SIMPLE AS THAT. UNPRINTING. REALLY?

Absolutely. We remove print from paper using laser. Printed paper in, plain paper out.

We thought it’d be best if we just call that Unprinting, but if you have a better suggestion, let us know! 

We are very proud of this technology, because it lets you reuse office paper several times before it gets recycled. Did you know the average office employee uses 10,000 sheets of paper every year, most of which are discarded within just a few days?

Imagine the kind of impact this will have. Unprinting is disruptive but fits brilliantly into your office. It requires little or no change in how you work, is easy to implement, and delivers stunning cost savings and CO2 reductions.

Now that’s what we call a win-win!
