A colleague told me that the term "printist"
(by analogy with "sexist", "racist", etc)
has been coined to describe people (including me)
with this misguided view.

Printists are evil people who cut down rain forests
and clog up waste-disposal units.
Hopefully the EU will soon promulgate directives
to cut out this kind of thing.
