Reduce waste and costs with stapleless printing

Many Sharp printers and copiers are now available with stapleless stapling - a method that crimps the corners of the pages together using serrated metal teeth. This eliminates the waste and cost of metal staples as well as making documents easier to recycle. Also, there are no worries about children hurting their hands on staples!

Committed to environmental sustainability

All Sharp printers and copiers adhere to the Sharp Green Products Guidelines. These guidelines include designing products that consume less power, using recycled materials, reducing the amount of material used and packaging and labeling the type of materials used. Sharp also designs products that are upgradable, easy to repair and easy to take apart for recycling. Our printers and copiers are ENERGY STAR qualified and RoHS compliant to restrict the use of hazardous substances with low TEC values. Sharp MFPs are EPEAT registered. Sharp is a multi-year winner of the ENERGY STAR annual Excellence in Energy Proficiency Product Design and the SmartWay Excellence Award.
