background

Eco-friendly from the start.

Being a leader in green, pioneering technologies began with one great idea: Reducing the impact on our environment must start with a commitment to clean, responsible industrial practices. As such, Golden Arrow is committed to sustainability and innovation in providing clients with total packaging solutions.

Every day, around 8 million pieces of plastic make their way into our oceans.

Help us change the face of packaging for a better, more sustainable future. Our printing services are a trusted alternative to traditional, environmentally-damaging printing methods. We utilize only clean and sustainable printing methods, including thermo-transfer printing, eco-inks and recycled paper products to create cutting-edge and attractive printed packaging.

We don't just say we're sustainable, we back it up.
