I'm faced with a dilemma. I'm getting my new DVD ready, once again using OasisCD to manufacture it. In this world where there's WAY too much plastic I cringe at the idea of 1000 plastic DVD cases. However, many of my DVD and CD sales are to libraries, either directly or through companies like Follett Library Services, the AV Cafe and Midwest Tape. As a former librarian, I'm well aware of how annoying non-standard packaging is.
Oasis has something called a Digipak, which they describe this way:
"...we use only 100% Green Forestry Practices Certified board stock and high-quality vegetable based ink on both the board and the discs. We also protect your package with poly wrap and your choice of a sultry, high-gloss UV finish or a subtle matte finish."The cost is a little more than the plastic cases, but I'd pay.
I'm leaning toward the Digipak. Will I be shooting myself in the foot if I use those? What do you think I should do?
