Many clients choose to have a lamination applied to their card CD & DVD packaging, producing a matt or gloss effect and sealing the print in order to avoid ‘cracking.’ As the picture above demonstrates, the laminate produces a professional and attractive finish but the colour will vary between matt laminated and gloss laminated packages.
Why apply a laminate to CD or DVD packaging?
Matt or gloss lamination is the best way to prevent the print on your packaging from cracking along the fold lines. The added benefit is that a matt or gloss effect can be created, added to the overall look and feel of the CD or DVD packaging.
How eco-friendly is lamination?
Whilst a laminate adds a professional finish to CD or DVD packaging, unfortunately it means that the card based packaging will not be recyclable and the carbon emissions of the lamination process are also a factor to consider.
If you want your CD or DVD packaging to be recyclable and have a gloss finish then ask us about our specialist paper board stock – we have a number of glossy (eco-friendly) paper stocks which can be used to produce your eco-friendly CD/DVD packaging.
