As an increasing number of people work from home, they are switching on to the enormous space-saving benefits of burning important documents to DVDs in a bid to achieve a clutter-free work and home environment. Avery Dennison Office Products is supporting ‘Organise Your Home Office Day’ to help people do just that, and to warn PC users against the potential hazards of not labeling disks safely.

In an age where space is at a premium and storage solutions are the priority in virtually every home and office, storing and archiving data on DVDs, which can store up to a massive 6.5 GBs, has fast become one of the home PC users’ most valuable assets. It’s not just about space-saving of course: if your PC dies and you don’t have adequate back-ups on disk, your business continuity, as well as the recovery of valuable personal records like photographs could be seriously affected. Nearly all PCs are now sold with DVD drives (rather than CD drives), and more than 6.8m DVDs are being burnt every month for business use alone. As the demand for DVDs rises, so does the need to efficiently and safely label these disks for effective archiving and retrieval. But if you’re not used to doing this, where do you start?

There are some hazards to be aware of…

Most consumers are unaware that DVD drives operate at a faster speed and run at higher temperatures than CD drives. For this reason, it is imperative that the correct labels are applied to the DVDs to protect against data loss and disk drive damage. To avoid such problems, Avery Dennison Office Products has pioneered a unique DVD safe technology, designed specifically to withstand these higher temperatures. It is the only guaranteed DVD safe labeling system on the market, and Avery are so confident of the products’ outstanding reliability, that they offer a 100% money back guarantee.

The Avery DVD Labeling Kit consists of premium quality labels for outstanding smudge-free print quality and an applicator for perfect central positioning. Taking the headache out of designing and formatting your labels, Avery has even created free downloadable software available from its website, which is easy to use. And for really effective filing, don’t forget DVD case inserts so you can print onto the spine for fast retrieval!

Raising awareness of the importance of effective and efficient DVD data storage, Avery is backing Organise Your Home Office Day on March 13. Why not put aside that day to update and secure your own filing system?

The Avery DVD Labelling Kit (RRP £16.99), along with a whole range of labels is available from leading stationery suppliers now.
