About Barnwell Print Ltd
Barnwell Print (the oldest family run printing business in the UK) were the first, and remain the only Certified Carbon Balanced Publication Printer in Norfolk. Since registering back in 2012 they have offset a massive 1843 tonnes of carbon dioxide and helped to preserve 76 acres of critically threatened tropical forest (figures up to Dec 2018). They were also the first Company to be awarded the Gold level Norfolk Carbon Charter. Heated by biomass boiler and using electricity that is 100% generated from renewable sources, they are a shining example of environmental care.
In 2017 Barnwell Print were highly commended in the Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards and in 2018 they came back again to win the Award outright in their sector. Additionally in 2018 they were finalists in the Norfolk Business Awards in the Environment and Sustainability category.
In 2017 the company invested heavily in the revolutionary new H-UV instant drying printing process. This allows them to achieve outstanding results, particularly on recycled and uncoated papers, thus encouraging more use of these environmentally friendly materials. The new press, whilst larger than its predecessor uses less energy and less ink, so fits neatly within the company’s environmental ethos.
