FSC 100% ... FSC Recycled ... FSC Mix. What's the difference?

The FSC label is the world’s most trusted mark for sustainable forestry. So what do these labels mean? Which product is best for you and your brand?

FSC 100%

All materials used come from responsibly managed, FSC-certified forests. Products with the FSC 100% label contribute most directly to ensuring the longevity of thriving forests for everyone.

FSC Recycled

The product with this label is made from 100% recycled materials. Using recycled material makes the most of precious forest resources and reduces the need to harvest more trees.


The product is made with a mixture of materials from FSC-certified forests, recycled materials, and/or FSC-controlled wood. While controlled wood doesn’t come from FSC-certified forests, it mitigates the risk of the material originating from unacceptable sources.

Should you choose an FSC certified paper for your print? If so, which one?

By making the simple choice to use any of the above types of FSC certified products, you are helping protect wildlife and forests.

In making your paper selection, you need to ask yourself these 3 easy questions:

  • How important is sustainability to our branding and our company?

  • Do our customers value sustainable business practices and print/packaging?

  • Do we want to do our part by contributing to thriving forests and a sustainable future for all?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then an FSC certified paper is for you!

Depending on the level of importance you place on sustainability and being environmental conscious, you can select from FSC 100%, Recycled or Mix. Printcraft can discuss your options within these FSC levels, and suggest papers to suit your requirements. Our team are highly experienced with FSC labelling and requirements. We can also guide you on how the labels can be displayed on your print marketing. After all, if you are making the genuine effort to use an sustainable and environmentally friendly paper, why not let your customers know by including the FSC label on your print or packaging.
