HP – Take it Back! Ink and Media Recycling Initiatives

Did you know that your HP inkjet cartridges can be recycled? What about your HP recyclable media printed with OEM HP inks? Do you know how easy it is to participate in the program? Read on for answers to all these questions.

HP has been involved with product recycling for over 25 years and utilize the materials in a “closed-loop” process, which means cartridge materials returned are created into raw materials used in the production of future cartridges. This program is easy to follow: simply drop off the original HP inkjet cartridges off at a collection location or ship them to HP by requesting shipping labels.

The HP media recycling program can be used with many of the recyclable Technical and Graphics or Sign and Display products. To be properly recycled, any printed graphics sent in must have been printed using HP printers and HP OEM ink. HP will send you labels and packing instructions for eligible products once you have completed the request. Then it’s as simple as taking it to a UPS drop-off location or handing it over to a UPS driver.

Whether you are participating in the HP Supplies Recycling or the Free HP Large-format Media Recycling, HP has made it easy for you to recycle some of your most frequently purchased products, which means less waste piling up and more raw materials available for production of new products.

If you have questions about either of these recycling initiatives or to replenish any HP products, call 800-453-9538 and speak with a LexJet rep today.

Now: Simple Grip for Windows — 3 Easy-to-Install Options

Original LexJet Simple Grip

Our award-winning LexJet Simple Grip Backlit film was such a fan favorite that we’ve added two more versions that deliver great window graphic results and are just as easy to install.

Original Simple Grip has a slightly frosted finish that is ideal for high-end retail environments that are enhanced with natural or artificial light — from the front or back — to really make the images pop off the window.

Prepping Simple Grip Clear

LexJet Simple Grip Clear offers a truly transparent film to add a hint of graphics or a dynamic display that allows for some see-through capabilities without perforation holes. Like original Simple Grip, graphics printed on Simple Grip Clear are visible from the inside or outside of the window. Print on the surface of the film to apply on the outside of the window or reverse print to face-mount the graphic from the inside for extra protection.

Printing LexJet Simple Grip White on HP Latex

LexJet Simple Grip White is our third, quick-dry polypropylene option with lay-flat construction that looks great with front lighting. The matte finish adds some opacity and colors and details really pop, especially with added lighting.
