GSP Ramps Up Sustainability Processes in Supply Chain

Clearwater, Fla., March 11, 2024 – GSP announced today that the Forest Stewardship Council® has awarded the company a chain of custody certificate. This officially verifies GSP’s value of sustainable forestry practices which are critical to procurement processes. The FSC certificate ensures products come from sustainably managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

In addition to responsible forestry practices, FSC’s core requirements include no child or forced labor, no discrimination in employment and occupation, and freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining. The certificate allows GSP to become a vendor partner with other companies who focus on sustainable practices, both upstream and downstream of GSP’s supply chain.

In addition to the recently acquired FSC certificate, GSP is one of 70 certified members of the Sustainable Green Partnership, a printing trade organization focused on a wholistic sustainability approach to production.

“We continuously seek improvements to our sustainable practices,” said Elaine Scrima, Executive Vice President of Operations. “Our AccuStore® technology eliminates print overages for our customers to reduce waste. We’ve leveraged our multiple plants to reduce transport emissions. We recycle materials in our production processes while using recycled materials and products whenever possible. We are committed to building sustainability into every order we deliver.”

Our Brand Story

GSP started as a printing company in1978. We found our niche supplying in-store signage for convenience stores when retailers guessed quantities they needed. This led to overage, waste and expense. To solve this, we developed software to guarantee on-time delivery of “the right size sign, to the right store, every time.”

In 2014, we started AccuStore with a dedicated team. As software helped drive our growth, we realized that new printing and fulfillment sites near customers could drive business and improve sustainability. We acquired companies that fit GSP’s technical excellence and superior customer service models.

First was Great Big Pictures in Madison, WI in 2015. They lead the field in large format printing and visual merchandising for iconic fashion retailers. Their standards for customer service include award-winning sustainability programs, and expertise to bolster retail environments services.

In 2020, GSP acquired Custom Color in Lenexa, KS. The company supplies printed graphics to leading retailers. Custom Color’s stellar quality in fabric printing also aligns with GSP’s values.

GSP provides branding and marketing services with a focus on site-specific execution to help transform our customers’ growth strategies into store-level success.
