Q: My wife and I enjoy reading the Roundup. It's a good paper but it seems like the ink rubs off on our hands more when compared to other newspapers. Is there a reason for this?
A: The Roundup and Rim Review are both printed on 100 percent recycled paper. To our knowledge, we are one of the only newspapers in the state using all recycled paper in our weekly products.
Recycled newsprint sometimes contains products that may not allow ink to permeate as much as regular newsprint. We also lean toward putting a little more ink down on the paper to make certain our older readers have easy-to-read text and clear photos with good contrast. This is especially important in a community newspaper where families cut out and scrapbook milestone stories and achievements.
We use recycled newsprint and soy-based ink to do our part to protect the environment. We also re-recycle all our excess newsprint.
