from Jan. 1st onward Pipeloops sample sets will only be available as downloads, we will stop producing and selling DVDs. The effort and cost of producing DVDs has become prohibitive in view of the very small numbers of customers (5-10%) who have chosen this option. In the last year just the cost of registering for the packaging (in the EU everyone selling a physical end product packed in some transport package like an evelope MUST register to finance recycling) has exceeded the amount paid extra for the sold DVDs. This is clearly not economical, and rather than having everybody pay the cost for the DVDs regardless if they want it or not I have decided to switch to download only.
Remaining stocks are still available until the end of this year.
