However hard you try, in production of orders we do sometimes have spoilt print or rejected burns from our machines.
That means we have unusable discs, which we always try to recycle in some way.
Just one wonderful use for a recycled CD/DVD !!
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.
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:
Just live on our Web-Site for the start of October is the New 4 Page Lancing Pack.
The Lancing pack is a 4 panel card wallet which opens like a book.
Printed in full colour front,back and inside using our industry leading digital press.
There are 4 panels for your artwork and an opening on the right for your disc to slot snugly into.
The card is die cut for an immaculate finish and is made from FSC Certified and sustainable premium Pro Card Stock 300 gsm .
The Lancing Pack has a modern look and is the perfect,more Eco-Friendly option to the CD Jewell Case.
And for the finishing touch you can choose to have Shrinkwrap applied to the Lancing Pack or for it to be sealed in one of our fitted Cellobags.
We have always favoured the Amaray DVD cases. Their quality in the industry is well known and we value using high quality professional cases for all our orders.
We just thought that we would update you about our choice to use the Amaray Ecolite cases whenever we can which you will notice if you look on the inside of the case that it does not carry the usual AMARAY branding stamp.
These is however an itc number embossed on the spine of all Amaray Ecolite cases so you know that it is genuine.
This information comes directly from Amaray and we feel is good justification to continue to use the ecolite case for our orders.
The Ecolite was a down weighting to deliver the same performance of product but 7g less material which is 14% weight saving.
To achieve this we re inserted face plates to new weight.
The material remains the same which is 100% polypropylene even the clear inlay film is. PP(polypropylene) is a great plastic that recycles easily up to 20+ times and can be reused for multiple products. The colour pigment is also PP based clean food grade. Therefore if/when the product reaches end of life the Amaray case can be fully recycled.
Finally within Amaray manufacturing UK we create zero scrap – all machine rejects/start up waste is fed back in through the process and reused.
