Good communication in any aspect of life is so important and we try to always work with our customers to understand and help them acheive what they want with their order.

We find live chat really helpful along with the phone lines that come directly to experienced staff.

Selling on Amazon: 29th May 2019

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019

We are often asked about selling CD’s and DVD’s online with companies like Amazon.

Many of our customers do this very successfully and use us to duplicate their CD’s /DVD’s and send their bulk orders direct to an Amazon Fulfilment Centre.

Selling on Amazon couldn’t be easier and there are a variety of selling plans available to choose from.

Depending on how much you think you will sell you can either have a monthly subscritption fee or a pay as you go (per item fee); you set this all up with Amazon when you register.

Once you have registered you just list your CD or DVD, and then use either an Amazon Fulfilment Centre to deliver to your customer or you fulfil the orders yourself.

You get access to the millions of customers who browse Amazon, a secure and trusted market place for selling and dedicated support to help you along the way.

Give it a go !!

Being Environmentally Aware: 21st May 2019

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

Playing our small part and being responsible for our own footprint, is our starting point with environmental issues.

CD, DVD & BluRay has traditionally been a very plastic orientated industry, with the CD Jewell Case and the Standard Plastic DVD box being for many years, the norm for packing and presenting your discs.

Over the last few years, and in conjunction with current responsible thinking we have been  keen to promote our Eco-Friendly casing options.

We have developed our own templates and sourced FSC certified Sustainable card stock to provide our customers with a high quality, low price, ecofriendly range for CD, DVD & BluRay packaging.

These include:

  • Single Card Wallets
  • Double Card Wallets
  • Lancing Packs
  • 4 page Digipaks

Cd single card wallets

As a result of this we have noticed a huge shift in the choice our customers make when deciding on their cases.

Our card wallets by far exceed the popularity of all our plastic options.

At the same time we are very respectful of peoples right to choose and still stock all the traditional case choices. Where possible and where the quality is good enough, we use eco plastic versions like the ecolite Amaray cases for our traditional dvd packaging.These are both fully recycled and  recycleable.

 

All of the templates for designing any of our card products can be found here:

Heralding the BluRay: 7th March 2019

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

People often forget that  a Blu-Ray can be played on a PS3, PS4 and XBox so you do not need to own a Blu-Ray player in order to buy and play Blu-Ray Discs.

Many of your customers may not even realise that they have the ability to play a Blu-Ray via one of these consoles!

Most families nowdays have one of these in the home.

We are promoting the Blu-Ray and have reduced our prices for you!!

What extra benefits do you get with a Blu-Ray over and above a standard DVD?

Greater Storage Capacity: Singe Layer BluRay can store approximately 25Gb data,this equals 2 hours of high defintiion information or 13hours of standard definition information.

Better Laser Technology: Blu-Ray players use a Blue Laser to read the stored information;the waves lengths are shorter and smaller in diameter than those of a DVD player, this allows for a closer and more precise reading of information on the discs.

Better Disc Construction:The Blu-Ray has a protective layer designed to resist scratching and in addition a harder coating than the DVD that makes it more scratch resistant.

Better Image Resolution:The Blu-Ray was designed for the high definition 1080 display. BluRay currently has the best image resolution on the market and looks amazing on HD TV, they are one of the few sources that display in Full HD.

Lastly and very importantly Blu-Ray can handle 4K (Ultra HD)….we dont need a new type of disc for our new Tv’s…you can have it all with the Blu-Ray.

Recycling /Upcycling,

Monday, June 4th, 2018

If you care about ecology and the careful and efficient use of our worlds resources you will be interested in reading read this article.

We have always viewed our general efficiency, in all aspects of our work as part of being an eco-friendly and responsible British Company. This includes the responsible choice and use of our own suppliers and supplies, careful budgeting and careful use of power (mainly electricity) and associated machinery. In addition to this we have internal policy regarding the recycling of any waste material.

This article is an informal piece about our most recent thoughts and practices.

From the start we use high quality casing for our Cds,Dvds and Blu-rays with the philosophy that in the long term these will provide the best protection for your discs and although some are plastic, will last a life-time so do not need to be replaced. This is slightly counter culture in what has become a throw away society in many walks of life, but there is common sense in choosing quality which will last; and despite this we still remain one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest for all of our products. There is a great deal of inferior quality, cheap packaging out there that is never use for any of our customers.

Over the 12 years that we have been in the duplication business we have noticed a large shift in the casing that our customers choose for their orders. From the days where nearly all CD’s were packed in a plastic standard jewel case and all DVDs packed in a Amaray plastic DVD cases, we now find that a much larger percentage of customers choose the more eco-friendly options of card wallets/digi-paks.

The card/paper we stock for all our printed parts is FSC Certified and sustainable. We feel this is a better option than recycled paper as research shows that due to the high volumes of bleach used to whiten the paper this is not as environmentally friendly…..which is not good. Responsible sourced and properly managed paper is a green industry, encouraging the growth of trees in the worlds forests. www.fsc-uk.org

In addition our, experience and the feedback our customers give us tells us that paper based products are less susceptible to damage in transit and less costly to courier, deliver and store compared to plastic cases.

Customer choice is highly important to us however and whilst there is a demand for the plastic standard jewell and standard DVD case and we continue to provide these on our web-site.

A large part of our recycling programme is to reuse all the incoming boxes and packaging to supply our out-going parcels.

Protecting orders is our top priority so this comes first however where possible we re-cycle all cardboard, jiffy/mailite bags and packaging, always removing any personal information on them first.

Good House-keeping in the production room means less waste, however on every order we do produce 1 or 2 over-runs of discs. This enables us to keep a control copy here of every order. We have researched widely the re-cycling of CD’s, DVD’s and Blu-Rays and have yet to find a highly sustainable channel for these.

We do however supply unburned discs to artists and students of design free of charge for sculpture or artistc projects.

There are also an increasing number of designers who use discs as the raw materials for projects like garden mosaics, lamps, dishes, picture frames, flower pots, mirrors, coasters and even a disco ball!! See www.zerowasteweek.co.uk for DIY ideas on how to recycle discs.

Another great use for discs is as bird scarers on allotments, they catch the sun if hung and will deter without harming birds who would eat delicate crops.

We minimise the use of paper by having an efficient invoice emailing and chasing system; although we will always send hard copy invoices if requested. We shred all paper that we can and this is re-used for animal bedding and then composted.

In short we view ourselves as a very eco-friendly company and we constantly update and re-visit our processes to see where we can improve and evolve in a productive and conscientious way.

Gained knowledge and know-how is the key here to keeping an efficient and eco-friendly approach in balance for our industry.
