YPPS has received Chain-of-Custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®), which is a non-profit organization established to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. The certification came through the Rainforest Alliance™, which is accredited by the FSC and is today the world’s leading nonprofit FSC certifier
The FSC Chain-of-Custody certification traces the path of products from forests through the supply chain, verifying that FSC-certified material is identified and kept separate from non-certified material.
While YPPS has offered and used FSC certified stocks for the past 6 years, they can now tout their support of FSC’s mission of responsible forest management with the FSC logo on finished print pieces. With an FSC brand, a printed piece has been monitored from the forest to the mills and from the printing press to the mailbox.
Originally established as an in-plant electronic print shop, YPPS has evolved into a center offering a wide-range of services, and plays an integral part in the support of Yale's mission of teaching and research by offering to students, faculty, and staff support encompassing the publication and dissemination of information.
The Yale community can draw upon all YPPS services including our traditional high quality black & white and color printing/copying, print consulting and publication production, graphic design and Web site building, scanning/imaging and document management, a full compliment of mail and fulfillment services, availability to in-house offset press capabilities, and much more. Integrating current and leading edge technology wherever possible, many of YPPS offerings provide the most current "state of the art" means to perform tasks including e-ticket services for job submittals, electronic job status/tracking capabilities, and on-line viewing of class course materials and other publications.
Working closely and in collaboration with the University Printer's Office, the talented staff of YPPS is ready to assist you. Members of YPPS have a commitment to Yale and are eager to fulfill their commitment to support Yale's mission.
