    Re: Recycling - What do you think?

    The key in my opinion is the "... where competitively priced, ..." It's one of those things that lots of people
    seem to want to do, but when it comes down to the bottom line many buyers opt for saving the money.
    I don't think they addressed what type of recycled content very well, or at all. Pre-consumer and
    post-consumer materials are different when figuring out how much a stock will cost the end user.

          We print entirely on pressure sensitive roll stock. To me one of the big drawbacks of this is the inability to recycle it, as the paper is married up to adhesive, silcone and a carrier. At best you can get some carriers that can be recycled, but these are only made avaiable for certain papers. And there are even fewer pressure sensitive papers out there which are made with post consumer material.

          Print Embellishment Goes
          Straight To The Bottom Line

          InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
