I feel It's important to get the website up asap, but also equally important to start with a concept that will and grow with us. We agreed we would discuss this initially until 25th of November (next weekend). I'll then start work in Dec, and I suggest we aim to replace the current site at the very start of January. (sooner if possible)

The New Bicycology Website

The purpose of this entry on the wiki is so we can try to collectively build a website that reflects our group. I've put a few headings bellow so that everyone can contribute in some way.

Thinking of printing

Thinking of printing?

Paper is blessed with two sides, why not use both? Keep old letters and leaflets, turn them over and run them through your printer!

If you have to get new paper, accept no less than 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper because this will:

  • use less energy, bleach and release fewer toxins in manufacture
  • save water
  • reduce waste to landfill and encourage the collection used papers for recycling
  • not be supporting the felling of trees to supply your worldly goods

If you are using a printer at a library or internet cafe, then why not ask them if they can stock 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper?


And as for ink...

Refilling your cartridge is cheaper, and re-uses the cartridge casing, don't be put off by scare stories bandied around by printer manufacturers, they are just trying to reap the profits of your loyal custom. Refilled cartridges are generally good quality and last just as long. You can even get a kit and do-it-yourself!

If you're being professional...

If you're thinking of printing some literature for your group professionally, but don't know where to start try www.lovelyasatree.com for more information on paper, design tips, inks, printing techniques and printing companies.

Bicycology recommend Footprinters Workers Co-op and Severnprint and we print on a lovely speckled paper called "cyclus offset" of course!
