At Top Value Fabrics, we are proud to support SGP and the ongoing development of sustainable options. We encourage industry leaders to join us.”

SGP supports printers by providing industry standards and the opportunity to acquire certification within print manufacturing operations.

SGP Chairperson and Vice President of Government & Business Information for SGIA, Marci Kinter, shares “Providing customers with verifiable data that your company is working to be sustainable will greatly boost your industry standing and credibility,” Kinter said. “Participation in this registry is the perfect way to combat consumer eco-fatigue and suspicion of 'greenwashing.'”
