Visually stunning images of flowers and wildlife decorate the walls of the RiverWorks Printing production studio in Greenland. Printed on eco-friendly Photo Tex material, these are no ordinary posters. They’re biodegradable, more durable than poster paper, and function like a giant size sticker that can be stuck and re-stuck onto most surfaces without losing adhesiveness or leaving behind residue.

That’s just one example of how RiverWorks Printing Print Manager Danis Chamberlin is working to redefine the large format print industry by offering cutting edge products that are both visually appealing and green at affordable prices. In an industry known for excess waste, RiverWorks Printing provides customers with a full suite of eco-friendly options, from biodegradable banners and recyclable posters to banner stands made from bamboo.

Bottles, cardboard, food containers, ink and ink cartridges, PVC, and paper – everything that can be recycled gets recycled at RiverWorks Printing. By shifting more and more of their operations to more eco-friendly methods and practices, the folks at RiverWorks hope to do their part in bringing these green options to the masses – even if the profits aren’t always as high.

“In this economic environment, it can be hard to stay competitive,” says Danis Chamberlin, 41, a Rye Native who joined RiverWorks as Print Manager after 12 years in the print and sign-making industries. “But we’re willing to take a slightly smaller profit on the eco-friendly products and services, if that helps makes them more affordable. We’re also helping to guarantee new and long-term customers.”
