4) a. Different Types of Packaging by Keith McGregor



There are standard <strong>CD/DVD printing</strong> and packaging styles and products, which are recognised in the audio and corporate markets. As we become more concerned for our environment and climate changes, this has prompted the use of recycled products. These mainly include the paper/board-based products from sustainable forests. There are more and more innovative packaging ideas being brought to boardroom meetings which has resulted in a comprehensive choice of creative packaging.

CD/DVD packaging range from card based products which can be Matt/Gloss laminated, varnished sealed, Matt/Gloss UV, Embossed, foil blocked and special die-cuts. There are also many plastic based CD/DVD packaging ideas, which can hold up to several CDs/DVDs, ideal for storing <strong>CD/DVD's when copying</strong>.

These have come from clients who have products that need to sell or capture the imagination of their customers or target markets. Some packaging are more suited to say mailing CDs/DVDs due to their robust material which protects the CD or DVD and others which are better for display the <strong>CD/DVD's printed design</strong> and to promote the product.
