Music Packaging Roundup 2011


Gold bubble wrap for this golden girl’s promo EP.

Shidlas- Saliami Postmodern

The CD is vacuumed like real salami and the sticker with contents is like it would be from a meat shop.

Money Mark- Brand New Tomorrow

The CD label artwork below is one of the most visually appealing CD label artwork I’ve seen in my lifetime! The wooden tape looks like it’s actually placed on top of the plain blue CD. I could stare at it for hours…well, not really. But you get my point.



CD comes with a random colored tiddlywink so you can scratch off the gold latex panels that cover the text on the packaging.

Girl Echo Suns Veils- lovesliescrushing

The Special Edition packaging is a hand-made wooden box with a slip door opening.

Explosions in the Sky- Take Care, Take Care, Take Care


One of the coolest vinyl packaging ever! The set contains a 10-panel quadruple gatefold cardboard jacket, with an enormous 18-panel full-color double-sided poster, and a full-color double-sided postcard – then all of that is tucked neatly inside of a full-color double-sided slipcaseAssemble everything to come up with something like the picture above.

123 Jump!- Jive Talk

Fold the CD case to form the stage and scan the QR code to start the band’s “live” animated performance. Watch the animated Jive Talk members perform their title track, “123 Jump!”.

Sewed CD Cover


You can actually sew your messages or artwork on this cover! Sew cool, isn’t it?


Freeway- Stimulus Package


The liner notes are huge dollar bills in a bank sleeve wrapped around the packaging like a big stack of money. After removing the sleeve and the bills you see the CD is inside a cardboard wallet, complete with a download credit card for the instrumental versions.
