While a good old fashioned card is underused, partly due to its durability, it is a sound eco-friendly option. In the right environment, and for the right job, card is a perfect substrate to use for display point of sale – think smaller in size pieces or p.o.s. which is being fixed to a flat supporting surface like a wall.
Used primarily outdoors, Di-Bond is an aluminium composite sheet with a thin aluminium skin, which makes it fully recyclable. It’s perfect for hoardings that need to be hard-wearing. As it’s such a strong material there’s no reason why we couldn’t actually re-use it in the future too.

While this wood-based product is made from sawdust and, if it is certified, sustainably grown wood, it uses glue to bond its composite pieces. And even though the amount of glue has decreased over the years, meaning it is effectively low formaldehyde, it’s still non-recyclable. It is reusable though. It’s also possible to use an MDF product called Medite Ecologique with a zero formaldehyde glue called MDI. The benefits of MDI glue are that you need much less of it to bond a board together, 3-5% as opposed to 10-15% for formaldehyde-based glue boards. Secondly, MDI is inert, which means that it does not let off gas and VOC’s.
We have a variety of PVC-free roll media including self-adhesive vinyl, roll-up stand film, banner and cling materials; a biodegradable wall fabric; floor, magnetic, and wallpaper. Many of these materials are manufactured in the UK and therefore have a low emission delivery rate to us. PVC is very difficult to recycle as it is made from lots of different formulations. These many compounds make breaking vinyl products down into their original components nearly impossible. Hence the need to use alternatives when and where possible.

It can be used internally and externally, including construction and advertising hoarding and display graphics. And while it can be used like wood, Storm Board does not rot because of rainy weather. And, at the end of its lifespan, it can be shredded and re-used to make a new batch of Storm Board.
Not only does this give you a beautiful matte surface, but it’s also not reflective, like coated gloss or satin papers. If you’re producing presentations or art, think of using an uncoated matte paper stock to show off your words and work effectively. We can print directly to the paper using water-based latex ink which helps to make this a highly recyclable product.
