The business and the environment usually clash in terms of ideas and actions. The common stereotype exists that business is all about money and have totally no regard for nature. The existence of many technological advancements and nature-exploiting companies have only aggravated the common tag about the two different areas. But, in the core of it all, there are still some people who come up with creative ways to connect the two areas harmoniously. One such example is the ECO printing concept used in many businesses. This is a perfect example of making a profit without stepping on the face of environmental awareness.
What is the ECO printing concept? This is a printing concept that utilizes ink made from soy oil. The conventional ink people use at home are made from petroleum, which is harmful to the environment. In short, ECO printing is a “green” way to produce paper materials that require ink for pictures and text. One company that use the “green” alternative in their business is Abet Printing. They use soy oil-based ink in producing CD and DVD insert, folder, jacket, sleeve and booklet. This types of products require large amounts of inks in order to maintain quality. One edge of ECO printing is that it is more affordable than using petroleum ink.
Whether for large-scale projects or special printing orders, the use of soy ink has been proven to be more cost-effective than using petroleum. For one, many newspapers are printed out using soy ink. There isn’t much difference anyway in terms of quality of images and text; in fact, there have been reports that ECO printing is more accurate in achieving colors. Businesses who are into printing heavy brochures, thick 16pt card stock, business card, postcard, digipak, envelop, and rip tear off cards need not worry about sacrificing quality just for the love of nature. ECO printing has made it possible to deliver top-notch paper products for low cost and environment-friendly practices. To go more than the extra mile, Abet Printing offers free shipping of products to their customers.
Who says business and love for the environment cannot go into one perfect mix? The results of many awareness campaigns and perhaps the happening of stronger catastrophic natural events have made citizens more careful about their environment. It is a reasonable reaction since they are the very victims of the harm they inflict on the planet. ECO printing serves as one step in turning wrongs into good things. By being more responsible about each person’s carbon footprint, people reduce their excesses and embrace simplicity.
Though there are still some who sacrifice the environment for profit, the growth of social entrepreneurship is on the rise. ECO printing is not just about a business earning money. It is also about caring for the surroundings by producing organic ink and making paper recyclable and easier to dispose. More so, it opened doors in inspiring other businesses to take the jump into environment-friendly solutions and still earn income from the process.

As an author of a brand new song, you know how it feels to pour your heart and soul into something beautiful that the world can then enjoy. The only thing is – before you send your new creation off to stardom, you need to ensure that it is well protected by copyright laws. Otherwise the product of your hard work will be vulnerable to piracy, and you may end up losing the rights to its ownership.
Copyrighting is a legal form of protection offered to authors of various intellectual property. When it comes to music, there are a few basics that will help you better understand the process of copyrighting your original works – such as songs and music.
The law is structured so that once you have your song or musical notes down on paper, or recorded on a CD, it actually creates a copyright – as long as you have it in a “tangible” format. The problem arises when someone else has the same song on paper – then you would actually have to prove that you had your copy first! To solve this problem, original works need to be registered with the Library of Congress www.loc.gov, and even then you are not fully protected against claims of authorship for your music.
That’s why there are so many intellectual property lawyers who like to take on complicated copyright cases and argue them in court…Fees for unlawful use of copyrighted music can run in the tens of thousands of dollars, so it’s no small laughing matter. Music industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, and there are heavy penalties in place to prevent people from stealing others’ intellectual property.
Once you have copyrighted your song or music, you will hold the exclusive rights to do the following:
Make copies of your work
To make other works which are a derivative of the original
Sell your work (often by licensing, leasing or lending)
Perform your work in public (includes its use in movies)
Display your work in public (audio-visual types of work, graphics, etc.)
Artists often go through a music publishing company, whereby they enter into a contract for the publisher to promote, distribute, and sell your music on your behalf. In this case, you basically assign the copyright to the publisher, and they in turn take their cut of the profits. Because of this, it is in their best interest to sell as many licensed copies of your music as possible – the more they sell, the bigger their profit margin is.
Another interesting copyright emerged in the early 70’s – which is called a “master recording copyright.” It copyrights the way your song is originally recorded. If someone wants to use your music in their public work (like a motion picture), you can request that they pay two separate copyright fees – one for the music, and one for the master recording.
If you record your new song with a major record label, then that company will be able to hold a master recording copyright and collect any future royalties from the use of your song and music in any public work – advertisements, movies, and so on.

When you place a DVD into a player, the first thing that you will normally see is a menu. Our professionals take into account the needs of your project to help you decide on the DVD menu design. Many DVD menu designs include the Play, Play All, Subtitles, Sound Options, Extras and many other options on the main menu. Each of these sub menus would not be present without DVD menu design. There are a few general templates that are used in DVD authoring software, and these can include sound and motion from the footage included, but generally are limited as to what options you can use. Custom DVD menu design allows you to choose what you want the menu to look like, colors, and options and sub menus.
The DVD menu design you choose will be completed by one of our professionals that is knowledgeable in the areas of video, DVD authoring and graphic design, so that your finished project will work as you wish and will also have a professional appearance. Before the authoring is complete, we will even send you a PDF file through your email so that you can look at it beforehand and approve or disprove it. You can design your own menu using some of our options, or you can choose from readymade templates that will create a professional appearance for your project. Designing your own menus gives you the choice of adding options or taking away options from the menu or sub menus on your DVD project, but we still have guidelines that are in place for your project. This simply means that there must be a menu, and there are certain aspects of the menu that cannot be taken away, but can be altered to suit your needs.
We offer a wide array of packages for DVD authoring that includes DVD menu designs, and you are in charge of your project. DVD menu designs are available for your perusal, and if you see a menu on another disc you like, let us know. We are more than willing to work with your design and help you create the DVD you envision.
