I have no experience with it, but am beginning to understand what it is. Unlike recycled papers, which may be compromised (lack of strength, for example), this is a way to have ecologically acceptable papers from new wood sources.

The paper provider must certify that the paper comes from well managed forests (I am not at all clear what that entails — renewable? fast-growing trees?) Then the paper merchant, printer, and client can use the Forest Stewardship Council logo. The printer needs to provide a chain-of-custody certificate in order to use the logo.

It seems that most paper merchants are at least tentatively buying into this. From the printer/designer point of view, it is a merchandising opportunity. From an ecologist’s point of view, let us hope it is also a Good Thing!

All I know about is that all the books I typeset that are printed by Clays of Bungay have a statement about their FSC status on the imprint page.

I also produce greetings cards on card that the supplier tells me comes from sustained forests though he's not provided a certificate number.

Its about tracking the wood pulp - into the paper and then to the product - It is being driven very hard all over the world by large corporates who want to "greenwash their image"
