Why Design and Print Your Own CD Case?


Technology has made it possible for all music enthusiasts to create their own tunes directly out of their home. What happens when you wish to make your own CD album and sell it? You need a way to replicate, design, and distribute your music. There are professional companies that can help you with a CD replication digipak which you can design for professional distribution. Designing your own CD case gives the packaging a professional appearance, allows you to express yourself, and ultimately protects your CD better than a paper sleeve.

 When your CD case is just a blank case with a title scribbled across the front, it looks homemade. If you plan on really trying to sell your music, you need professional packaging through a CD replication digipak. When you go through a professional printing company, you can design your own covers for a professional look. It looks much more authentic than a CD sleeve or jewel case.

Designing your own CD case also allows you to express yourself. You are not just leaving the designs to someone else to decide. You have the last say in how it looks. The printing company will print whatever you decide as long as you have the rights to the images.

Having your own case printed also protects your CD much better than a paper sleeve. In most cases, professional printers have options like a plastic case for your CD to rest on, similar to the way a home jewel case would hold your CD. Not only does your packaging look great, but you can trust that you CD will be better protected inside.

You really want to consider what you plan on doing with your CDs once they are burned. If you plan on trying to turn your music into a professional career, then investing in a CD replication digipak from a reputable printing company might be a good idea. Designing and printing your own CD case will give it a more professional look and allow you to express yourself. Ultimately, the choice is yours on whether or not to go with professional packaging.
