Advanced Image Direct is the premier West Coast production environment for many Fortune 500 companies across the United States.

FULLERTON, Calif. (April 24, 2012) – Advanced Image Direct (AID) today announced that it has joined Two Sides, the fast-growing non-profit organization established to promote the responsible production, use and sustainability of print and paper.

“As one of the largest and most secure print/production manufacturing platforms in the United States, Advanced Image Direct’s commitment to the highest green manufacturing and product standards is a perfect fit with Two Sides’ mission to promote sustainable business practices in the print and paper industry and to dispel misconceptions about the medium’s sustainability," says AID Owner Frank Verrill. “The Two Sides’ focus on factual information from credible sources will help Advanced Image Direct enhance our own efforts to spread the word about the many environmental, social and economic benefits of print and paper.”

“Print and paper have a great environmental story to tell, and Two Sides is pleased to have Advanced Image Direct join our growing U.S. effort to get the word out to as many people as possible,” says Two Sides President Phil Riebel. “Made from one of the earth’s few truly renewable resources – responsibly managed forests – print and paper is the most recycled commodity in the world. In the United States, the paper recovery rate reached an all-time high of 66.8 percent in 2011. In addition, the demand for responsibly grown wood fiber to make print and paper products provides a long-term financial incentive for private landowners to manage their land sustainably instead of selling it for development,” he says. “And in the United States, the print, paper and forest products supply chain supports hundreds of thousands of jobs.”
