Donna,
Your proposed approach seems like a good selection to me. My
understanding is that most inkjet inks for addressing have
significant (don't know percentages) of VOC content. In fact,
QuadTech, a subsidiary of QuadGraphics, markets a VOC recovery unit
for use with inkjet addressing systems. Have you investigated
availability/use of water-based inkjet inks? Do you know VOC
content?

Seems like with mass mailings one of the biggest areas of P2
opportunities is mail list management to eliminate duplicates and
out-of-date addresses, and not printing excess numbers of promo
materials.
