4 Ways to Add Awesomeness to Clear CD Cases


CD Jewel cases are considered as passé —a thing of the nineties. Everyone today wants to release in digipaks and fancy packaging and if they do release in a CD jewel case, they often overcompensate in the CD artwork. But the jewel case is actually one kickass CD packaging if paired with a brilliant concept. Here are some of the most creative ways you can turn a “boring” CD jewel case into a work of art.

1. Print directly on it.
