The print version of Low Impact Film making was created on a Macintosh
IIsi using Quark Express, and Photoshop.
Our fonts are Garamond, Helvetica and Tempo Heavy Condensed.
This project consumed mostly paper: probably 5,00 sheets of paper
for test prints, early versions, notes, etc. AII that paper has
been recycled. We contacted most of the companies in the source
guide, and they sent their info. As a result we're probably on 10,000
matting lists which will generate tons of paper waste.
Our first printing was of 1,000 copies.
We printed at Lyn-Bar Enterprise in Port Washington, NY. Our thanks
to Greg Barber.
We used soy based ink and the following paper stocks:
Text: Lily of the Valley and Oat 70 lb. Sandpiper for Domtar Specialty
Fine Papers (the paper is 100% post-consumer, non-deinked, and does
not use chlorine-based bleaching agents in the manufacturing process).
Cover: Simpson Quest Bronze Cover 80 lb. (100% post-consumer)
