In Digital Photographer magazine, we often encourage our readers to print more of their images, advocating the benefits (and enjoyment) of seeing our photographs in physical form. 

In the modern world, however, we must also be conscious of the impact that our behavior has on the environment – and printing is a large focal point of potentially unfriendly processes in this area. If you only print a few images a month then your footprint is arguably minor when compared to large professional studios, who churn out thousands of prints in the same period, but we can all do our bit to prevent unnecessary negative consequences.
