Healthier Ways to Print At Home
February 25, 2021

Over the past year, Covid-19 has taken the world by storm and has had a tremendous impact on the way we live and work. Home quarantine has become a hot topic for us, and working from home has become a daily routine for many people.

However, working from home isn't easy, and interruptions from your children -- who might accidentally delete your files or scream during your Zoom meeting -- can be distracting. What's worse, you may take the potential hazards of the office home with you. For example, do you know what? Your printing work may produce harmful gases, and the paper you use may have residues that can harm your family's health!


In order to protect the health of our families, we should print in a healthier way. Here are some tips.

1. Inkjet printers are more suitable for home office

When your child mess up the print supplies, toner leakage can be more difficult to clean than the ink’s because the toner dust may fly in the air. Inkjet printers are more family-friendly.

2. Choose Eco-Friendly Paper

We don't usually think of standard printed paper as toxic, but actually, they may leave some toxic chemicals on the paper due to dye, bleaching and other processes. For example, chlorine used in paper bleaching may be left on the paper and release chemicals. The decomposition process of paper may also release a certain amount of methane gas.


Today, there are some types of paper on the market that are more environmentally friendly and healthier for us. Processed chlorine-free paper, for example, reduces the potential harm that chemicals can do to our bodies. If you print homework for your children, you can choose eco-friendly paper of this sort.

3. Buy safe and certified ink

We recommend that you do not use inks from unknown brands, because their poor printing performance do not meet your needs. More terribly, they may release irritating gases and harmful emissions. You would never let your family live in such environment.

Instead, the quality products from well-known brands make you rest assured. They are usually of higher quality, professionally certified, and every bottle of ink can be traced back to the manufacturing plant.


G&G EverBrite Ink, for instance, has been re-engineered to provide safer and more reliable ink products. The optimized formulation of EverBrite inks complies with RoHS, Reach, Pops and PAHs standards. And the ink is free of volatile substances, which will not produce any harmful emissions or irritating odors in the air. Therefore, you don't have to worry about the ink will affect the air quality and harm your family's health.

We hope the above suggestions can help you. So you can protect the health of your family while working from home. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us via marketing_center@ggimage.com
