Custom CD Packaging: The Best Way to Grab Attention


Do you want your CD to stand out and I mean really stand out from the sea of CDs? Then maybe you should have a custom CD packaging instead of having a regular jewel case for your album. Having a custom CD packaging is probably the best way to catch people’s attention. Manufacturing a custom CD packaging may not be cheap and easy, but it will certainly do the trick. When you place your custom CD packaging beside a sea of boring jewel cases, you know which one gets the most attention.

Let me explain. When we shop in the malls, our eyes are browsing really quickly. Since we are in a hurry and many things are screaming for our attention at once, we don’t notice anything bland and uninteresting. The consumer’s eyes are so used to seeing jewel cases and other cardboard packaging that your unique custom CD packaging would instantly draw them in even when they are in a hurry.

What I love most about having custom CD packaging is that you will have a lot of creative freedom. You are not confined on the number of CD panels and the dimensions so you can go as crazy as you want…well, depending on the budget of course. You should check out more Custom CD packaging online so you’d get more inspired-there are those packaging that resemble an amplifier, those that are made of cloth, those that are in pizza boxes, and many others.

So I guess you are now pretty convinced. The next thing you should know is how to get custom CD Packaging.

CD manufacturing. Most CD Manufacturing companies accept Custom CD packaging projects. The budget and the turnaround time depend on the availability and the price of the materials used. Some could take a few weeks before reproduction, some could take months. Custom CD packaging is not a very simple project and it requires a lot of research, tinkering and brainstorming by you and the CD Manufacturing company. Like all great things, custom CD packaging requires more patience and creativity.

Cost. If you are rich and you do not care much about money, then you have all the liberty in the world to create elaborate designs but if you are like everyone else, then custom CD packaging could be quite a challenge budget-wise. The cost of custom CD packaging also depends on the materials that you choose. So if you are in a tight budget, yet you want to create a unique CD packaging, you must consider the materials above anything else when you are brainstorming for the design. Custom CD design when you are in a tight budget requires that you work backwards. Look for available, inexpensive materials in the market first and try to come up with great designs using these materials.

Considerations. Anyone can be creative but it requires a lot of creativity to work within the box. When you have constraints and limitations and you can still pull-off a kick-ass CD packaging, then you are a genius. When designing your Custom CD packaging, you should consider the weigh. You are going to ship hundreds of CDs to different parts of the world and you do not want your fans to get discouraged by the price of shipping. Another thing to consider is the shape. Choose regular shapes instead of complicated ones so it would be easier to store and ship them.

Being unique has its rewards. Either others praise you for it or hate you for it but what is more important is the pride of knowing that you are wonderful enough to make something different.
