Message Marketing for Ministries

Religion is a deeply personal thing, and requires a hard-to-pin-down resonance to attract followers. Message marketing, or finding ways to share your church with the goal to increase membership, might feel crass or uncouth. But the truth of the matter is that the competition is fierce, the approaches varied, and it's not easy to simply *connect* with the right audience. Engaging is modern marketing tactics and analysis is important for the health of any congregation. 

From branding, technology implementation, and beyond, the opportunities for church's to level up their engagement are endless.  Cre8tive Marketing has plenty of insights for churches, and Sunrise can bring the packaging power.

Sermons, Lessons and More: Message Marketing Tactics

Faith-based organizations have an uphill battle when it comes to business. One of our favorite recent projects is the example to the side. This project uses custom foam insert for promotional products (just another aspect of custom packaging). The matte lamination around the unique design gives this package a unique look and feel, and the magnetic closure is the cherry on the top of this promotional packaging project. 

Whether you are planning on digitizing sermons, hymns, or some other method of sharing the unique proposition that your church presents, we guarantee that the perfect packaging customization is out there for you.

Callings, Clarified

At Sunrise Packaging, we've worked with a wide variety of industries. And in those experiences, we've learned a lot about how to help companies drill down to the heart of their messaging and branding, and how to bring it to the forefront of their custom boxes and packages. Putting your words in our hands is not something we take lightly. When you're ready to pursue this calling, we'll be here!

Where Can You Recycle DVD Cases?

Ever wonder what to do with all of your old DVD cases when you switch to storing your discs in multi-disc DVD casesblack premium dvd case reuse or DVD albums? They are not curbside recyclable, but there are still other options to get rid of your old cases without having to throw them in a landfill.

Reuse
First, a good idea is to see if anyone else can reuse your old DVD cases. A number of places would love to take them off of your hands:

  • libraries,
  • schools, and
  • churches

These types of organizations always need replacement DVD cases for their media collections. Some schools have classes where students create videos on DVD and they could use cases to display and protect their projects.

Another place to donate would be Goodwill or another thrift store. They receive donations of discs without cases or with broken cases, and it would be much easier to sell a DVD with a case. They could also just sell the empty cases. Video rental stores or any store that sells used DVDs would also gladly take your used cases as replacements.

Or there are websites like Freecycle where you can post items that you would rather give away than create waste by throwing them in the garbage.

Recycle
If the cases are broken or they cannot be reused for some reason, there are still other alternatives to throwing them away. You can’t put DVD cases in your curbside recycling bin, but you can check with your local recycling center to see if they will take them. Earth911.com can help you find a local recycling center for certain types of materials.

There are other centers that we found where you can send in your old DVD cases. There is not charge, but they may ask for a small donation to help cover costs:

Plastic Recycling, Inc.
2015 S. Pennsylvania St.
Indianapolis, IN 46225

CD Recycling Center
68H Stiles Road
Salem, NH 03079

There are plenty of options available to reduce waste by having your DVD cases reused or recycled, rather than just throwing them in the garbage. Just another way you can be more environmentally-friendly.
