Packaging Options

There are countless options for packaging your media project. The following are the most popular. For more packaging ideas, please contact us and we'll gladly provide you with information and samples.

Jewel Case

The jewel case is the industry-standard package for compact discs. These clear plastic cases are inexpensive and provide total protection of the disc. Retailers love 'em because most display racks and anti-theft devices have been designed around them.


Digipak

The Digipak is a rugged cardboard sleeve folded around a plastic tray in which the compact disc sits. They are beautiful, but in quantities under 2500 significantly more expensive than the jewel case.


Mini Sleeve

The mini-sleeve is printed on heavy paperboard. It looks like an old-fashioned LP sleeve. These are perfect for singles and promotional releases. They are too slender for most retailers anti-theft devices, and therefore not recommended for conventional retail environments.



Full Color, CMYK, Process

Full-Color

Also known as Process Color, 4-color or CMYK. Full color printing is the defacto standard for all Noiseland jobs.


Grayscale, Black and White

Black & White

Less is more. A very elegant alternative to full color. Most projects are printed as full color on the cover and black & white on the interior pages.


Grayscale, Black and White

Spot Colors

A third option is printing with spot colors. The sample shown is a two color duotone using the colors black and blue. Spot colors can be used alone, or in various blends as duotones, tritones, etc. This option is more expensive as it requires special inks and printer setup.


Grayscale, Black and White

CD Label Printing

The CD face is printed using the screen printing process. It is common to print full color CD labels, or to use spot color seperations. More information on CD label printing is available in the Expert Design area.
