Thermal insulation has been added the Lumi Catalog. Four types of insulation can now be quoted with manufacturers in the network.
Thermal insulation keeps temperature-sensitive products, like food and medicine, stable in transit. All the new insulation types can be cut to custom sizes and comes covered in a sleeve or liner that can be custom printed.
All four insulation options are more sustainable alternatives to styrofoam with comparable performance characteristics. Where they vary most is in weight and recovery options (recyclability, compostability).
Poly Mailers are one of the most popular packaging products, yet they are notoriously challenging to recycle and are made from non-renewable materials. Today we’re announcing our new array of Compostable Poly Mailers that help move the ecommerce industry towards more sustainable options.
A few months ago Vox published a fantastic article titled “No online shopping company can figure out how to quit this one plastic bag”, explaining why poly mailers continue to be so prevalent and difficult to eliminate from supply chains. In summary, no other product provides the same combination of properties: a great printing surface, water-repellent, low cost per unit, and lightweight to reduce shipping costs and emissions.
We set out to find a better way to make poly mailers that meet the needs of businesses but also move the industry towards more sustainable options. We’ve worked with factories in the Lumi Network to provide compostable PLA and PBAT Poly Mailers, while maintaining similar printing quality, costs and lead times.
The proof approval workflow can now be managed entirely in your Lumi Dashboard. Here are some of the new features we launched today:
We're also excited to launch Publications! Multi-page printing and binding capabilities help you create magazines, catalogs, booklets, and newspapers to bring your content offline.
We've found a lot of inspiration from Lumi users designing publications to provide product information, share new products, or just engage folks in their community.
Options span the gamut from full color digital printing, or with lithography for more accurate Pantone color-matching. From newsprint to glossy cover stock, the paper options are nearly endless.
Collateral is here! We're talking about paper — flat, folded, glued, in just about any size, construction style, and paper stock you can dream up. Use collateral to welcome customers to your community, promote a new product, or provide product instructions.
Print your collateral digitally in full color, or with lithography using Pantone matching. For a special touch, consider spot coatings, lamination, emboss, deboss, or foil stamping.
We've beta tested this collection for over a year, and now it's available in your Lumi supply chain across all geographic regions. Here are eight new collateral products to get your juices flowing.
