The many packaging designs are listed below (many thanks to Rainbow Jam for making my job easier. ):
Custom Printed CD Sleeves:
The common plastic case with a CD-holding plastic tray inside. a paper inlay or booklet at the front and a paper inlay or booklet at the back. This is how CD albums are often packaged. A cardboard slipcase that fits over a Custom Printed CD Sleeves and is either open on one end or both ends. holds a thicker booklet occasionally that occasionally doesn’t fit inside the Custom Printed CD Sleeves.
A box that differs from a slipcase in that it has closed ends. However, infrequently used as unique packaging for a single CD. Typically used to carry many CDs in either Custom Retail Packaging Boxes or card Sleeves. The CD is held in place on the rear of a slimline Custom Printed CD Sleeves, which is thinner than a regular Custom Printed CD Sleeves and lacks an inside tray. will have a paper inlay on the front and a disc that can be seen on the back. This is how CD singles are often packaged. A Custom Printed CD Sleeves that is at least twice as deep as a typical Custom Printed CD Sleeves that opens both at the front and the rear can carry two or more CDs. This type of Custom Printed CD Sleeves is known as a wide/fat double/multiple CD Sleeves. will include paper inlays on the front and back, and it could even contain a booklet. The packaging for earlier CD double albums is typically like this.
Slim Double Custom Printed CD Sleeves:
A typical Custom Printed CD Sleeves that includes a unique tray within. The tray flips open within the Custom Printed CD Sleeves like a book’s pages and can contain a CD on each side. a paper inlay or booklet at the front and a paper inlay or booklet at the back. This is how double CD albums are often packaged. SirePrinting: A cardboard case that unfolds like a book to reveal a plastic tray with the CD affixed inside. The cardboard packaging for the CDs has printing of all the artwork. may come with a booklet that fits within the SirePrinting. SirePrinting with fold-out portions: The same as before, just with more fold-out sections on the SirePrinting.
A CD is held inside a plastic tray (similar to the tray inside a SirePrinting) by a cardboard slipcase that is thinner than those used to hold a Custom Printed CD Sleeves. The slipcase has prints of all the CD artwork.
A tiny version of a record cover’s cardboard Sleeves. On the Custom Cannabis Packaging jacket, the entire CD artwork is printed. Plastic Wallet/Sleeves: A transparent, thin plastic wallet with an envelope-style flap that folds in. It is most likely a pirated copy if you are provided a standard release (i.e., not a promo) in packaging like this, whether it has artwork or not. See my guide on the various kinds of unauthorised CDs and how to recognize them. If the CD is a promotional item, it will either include a generic insert (a white piece of paper with printed CD information), a picture insert (a simplified version of the suggested artwork that is typically of lower quality than the finished product), or occasionally no insert at all. CD Sleeves are similar to cardboard Sleeves, however they are often made of paper (or another material that I am not aware of) and don’t typically have any printing on the cover.
