Crazy Copy Center 20 jaar
nl - fr - en


Crazy Copy Center was founded in 1995 for the students and various departments of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in Ixelles. Throughout the years, Crazy Copy Center has made goal-oriented investments allowing us to offer our customers a total solution in the printing industry.

As a result, Crazy Copy Center has a large number of external customers in the Brussels region. However, the role of the student, the printing requirements in the education sector and the social cultural non-profit sector are still our main focal point. Crazy Copy Center is a Digital Print Room from Pre-Printing down to the finished product.

Our ultra-fast printing service provides both digital color prints as well as black-and-white prints of the highest quality. Our company employs competent and highly trained staff to help you in achieving high-quality finished products. In case you have little or no experience with printing, our personnel will be more than happy to provide you with professional guidance and advice.

Excellent quality, speedy deliveries and democratic pricing are only a click or a phone call away. Our shop is easy to find, conveniently located on the campus of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Pleinlaan 2, entrance 6 or 13, building E, 1050 Brussels.

For years, Crazy Copy Center has invested time and effort into keeping its ecological footprint as small as possible by taking an environmentally friendly position. The printing sector is not a very polluting sector, still we do all we can to keep our impact to a minimum.

1 - Environmentally friendly paper :

The paper we have been using for the last few years is Inacopia Office 75 gr, originating from controlled Eucalyptus plantations in Portugal. We visited these plantations and factories in person and we were able to determine that:

  • Eucalyptus globulus yields up to 75% more pulp and therefore more paper, based on the same volume of wood used, when compared to other trees used to produce pulp.
  • It is internationally acknowledged that Eucalyptus globulus provides good paper making properties such as bulk, stiffness and opacity with a low lignin content which means less chemical agents are required to remove the fibers’ bonding substance.
  • Currently, the Portucel Soporcel Group manages its forests in a sustainable way and takes care of both their conservation and biodiversity through a partnership with WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature). Opponents of the Eucalyptus tree often talk about soil drying out. We did not notice any of that and we clearly saw wild growth in between the Eucalyptus trees. In the past the landscape was primarily populated by spruce, so no great loss really.
  • Trees are replanted or naturally regenerated after harvesting.
  • The Group is the largest Portuguese producer (60%) of green energy from biomass.
  • The renewable forests store an amount of carbon that is equivalent to the CO2 emissions generated by 1,5 million car journeys around the world.
  • Indigenous peoples’ and owners’ rights, i.e. those who earn their livelihoods from and/or live in the forest, are respected.
  • Workers’ rights and welfare are protected and local employment is encouraged.

We have decided to use Inacopia Office 70gr in all our small printers and copiers instead of the 75gr. This reduction of 5 g/m² ensures eco-efficiency, since the same number of reams/boxes can be produced using fewer resources, generating less waste, without compromising printing quality and machine performance.

All our paper is provided with a FSC or PEFC label


2 - None of our trash paper goes to waste :

Redundant paper due to erroneous prints or test prints on the part of technicians are given to the students as scrap paper or it is sorted in the paper containers of the VUB. It goes without saying, we do not use any belts but non-stop boxes.

3 - All remaining toner is collected:

Ink and toner, worn printer parts are collected by the suppliers and recycled.

4 - We collect foils, old markers and corks:

The foil (HDPE, LDPE) around pallets is collected by Van Gansewinkel and it is recycled. Crazy Copy Center is a collection points for old/empty markers and pens (, for corks from wine and champagne bottles ( and for plastic caps (


High quality inkjet prints are digitally printed on our 44inch Canon image PROGRAF IPF8400S big format printer directly from a PDF, TIFF or JPEG file with a continuous tone resolution of 2400 x 1200 dpi.  The Lucia Ex 8 color ink (BK, MBK, C, M, Y, PC, PM en GY) provides a wide color spectrum with an excellent black reproduction.
