The Ultimate List of CD Packaging Tips To Make Your Life Easier When Making Your First Album


If it’s your first time to make artwork for a CD cover or CD packaging, then the best thing to do is to not do it yourself. Hire a legit CD packaging designer like the Dodds Sisters (they’re awesome)! But if you’re too broke to hire one, especially because they really are not so cheap,   then at least hire a graphic designer. However, not all of them are experienced with designing CD packaging. It’s better to read these very useful articles on CD packaging from concept to printing and shipping.
