In an attempt to save trees and the environment, are also new options for duplication. Eco-friendly options within CD duplication is another way to begin the process of getting your products into the public and helping to save the environment at the same time.
The major way in which CD duplication is beginning to contribute to the environment is through packaging options. Using the slim trays instead of jewel cases, for instance, is a popular option in order to reduce the amount of material that is used for each CD and still allow the same amount of professional quality to be seen in each package. Keeping this option in mind when you are deciding on packaging is an easy way for you to save a tree.
Not only does the casing help with going green, but the products that are produced to compliment your CD are also taking an eco-friendly approach. If you want to be environment cautious, you can also look at the options for paper stock. This includes things such as recycled paper, fiber board and wood free options. There are several manufacturers who specialize in this in order to help with the environment.
Not only can you get the inserts as these types of products, but can also build your entire CD cover with this. If you decide to use a mail jacket or a regular slip jacket, it will be easier to find the right eco-friendly options. These types of covers also come with alternative material options, including foam boards, fiberboard and recycled materials. With the alternative materials used, you can easily create a CD that is environment friendly.
The result with the materials that are used is that your entire CD package can become biodegradable. Not only will you be saving on materials through recycled and alternative materials, but you will also be helping the environment to stay clean through the different ways in which you approach your CD manufacturing. This becomes an important concept when placing together your eco-friendly package.
The biodegradable concept moves past the materials and into the details of your packaging. One of the large components of this is the use of ink in the CD. Companies have now found ways to become environmentally friendly with print. This is specifically done through the use of vegetable oil or soy as a base, which is environmentally sensitive. The varnishes and inks that can not have this base use low content in chemicals and are water based instead, allowing for less man-made fumes to be placed in the environment. You can look for the ingredients in the ink or can find carbon neutral options that are used in the materials.
If you want to top off your green thumb, you can also consider making short runs of your CD instead of mass productions. This means only printing off 500 or less in bulk at one time. This will allow you to save on wasted materials and ensure that your market takes what is already duplicated without any left overs. This simple, but eco-friendly option, will allow you to contribute to the environment and to mixed media at the same time.
No matter what type of CD you are producing, having eco-friendly options can help you to contribute in more than one way. Knowing the options for materials, manufacturing and the process of the CD duplication can further your abilities to remain aware of the environment while printing your CD.
