Converd – Have You Heard?
“Going Green” and “Eco-friendly” seem to be the ultimate buzz words lately, and it’s a trend that’s being embraced by retail stores, companies, corporations, institutions, organizations and environmentally conscious people everywhere. What’s more, the “Let’s-All-Save-the-Earth” attitude doesn’t seem to be going anywhere – it’s here to stay.
The overall “greening” of the digital sign industry is something that we’ve been following fairly closely here at ND Graphics, and we can’t deny that increasingly customers are looking for both cost-effective and environmentally friendly products. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “tree hugger,” you may find it worthwhile to be able to offer green alternatives to your environmentally conscious customers, without compromising on the quality of the final product.
Enter the Converd line of completely renewable, reusable and sustainable print media. Now, we’ve been interested in Converd since they made a splash at Sign Expo 2012 in Orlando when ISA announced they’d be printing all of their signage on Converd products, and they have yet to disappoint. Not only do these products offer a paper alternative to petroleum based products, but they’re FSC and Rainforest Alliance (RAC) Certified, made with 10% PCW (post-consumer waste) and 100% recyclable. By “recyclable” we don’t mean that you can send printed material back to the manufacturer or a specialized recycling company. You can literally just throw it into your regular recycling bin!
The bottom line, is the bottom line.
Most importantly though, they’re affordable. Really. The biggest obstacle to date when it comes to greener products has always been the cost; customers are interested in eco-friendly alternatives, but aren’t willing to fork out the extra cash. The reason we’re so excited about Converd is that they’ve managed to create a great quality, environmentally friendly product, that’s also cost effective!
Take a look at what this great line has to offer:
