  • Basic Terminology of Tray Packaging
    Number and Size of Panels, Types of Trays

    There are numerous features that can be varied when making a digipak:

    • ~Number of panels (count the number of panels visible on one side. Each panel can hold a tray, or a pocket, or just be a solid panel)

      4pp digipak 2cd set 2 trays 6pp digipak packaging8panel digipak packaging10panel digipak packaging
      4-, 6-, 8-, and 10 Panel Digipaks


      ~Size of panels (usually the panel width/height matches the tray size)

  • Digipak Booklet Options

    ~Booklets
    We can we do booklets...any size. Stapled, folded, attached to spine, weird folding, gluing to panels,stapled stitched perfect bound, etc etc. Note that booklets come in 4pp increments. We can also use different types of papers and finishes to achieve a matte or glossy effect. Here are a few examples:

    Recycled booklet glued in cd packagingattached cd booklet in album with swinging sleevevintage cd booklet with uncoated distressed look paper cd albumuncoated stock cd packaging with booklet inserted in digipak pocketcd perfect bound book with covers under tray fly sheetsvellum flip book in custom cd dvd packagingperfect bound book with black ink animation custom dvd packaginguncoated stock cd booklet matte recycledperfect bound book in cd digibook packagingspiral bound notebook in custom dvd packagingstapled cd booklet attached to spine in cd bookglued poster in eco friendly cd packaging recycled stockfolded poster in eco friendly cd packagingbooklet attached to spine in cd book packaging digibookcd notebook with disc pocket

  • Full Color Printing - Reverse Side of Paper 4C/4C
    Printed Inside Pockets and Spines

    We print our digipaks on both sides of the paper so that you get full color, continuous art printing across the inside of the packaging. This is especially important if you have vibrant colors or need to make a big impact. Specialty paper stocks like fiberboard digipaks are generally not printed 4C/4C as the fiberboard is brownish and doesn't result in a glaring white spine if left unprinted.

    Notice the continuous art on these examples of PIPS on White Stock:
    Digipak full color printing across inside 4C/4Cfull color digipak printing inside spinesdigipak inside spines printed 4C/1Ccd digipak continuous printing across inside vintage look paper
    without PIPS, you can see the white spines, which is the reverse side of the paper:
    4C/0C digipak
    Sometimes, 4C/4C art is not needed. Take a look at these examples of PIPS and No PIPS on Fiberboard Stock:
    fiberboard digipak  4C/4C printing with paper traypaperfiberboard digipak with 4C/0C printing
    Art is generally printed in 4C (that's cmyk). If one side of the paper is printed, this is referred to as 4C/0C. If both sides are printed, we refer to it as 4C/4C. We can also do just 4C/1C if your primary inside color is black. Alternately if you are not printing in cmyk but prefer pantone inks, we can substitute 2PMS colors instead of 4C cmyk.

    One other fun trick with PIPS is printing behind the pocket, like this secret message:
    cd album printing inside pocket reverse side of paper printed

     

     
  • Comparing to Amaray Type Cases?

    Amaray cases are ok for some things, they work at Blockbuster. But we wouldn’t pit a plastic case against a Tall Digipak in a buying-sensitive arena. The plastic cases are generally available in black or clear, and we can even do recycled material in the black plastic cases, but it’s still just a plastic case with a thin paper insert. Our recommendation for cases is generally if you feel compelled to use an amaray type case, at least consider a 4C slipcase with embossing or a die cut window to dress it up. Unless it’s selling at the Dollar Store or just being rented, and sales aren’t a factor, make it stand out.

    With digipaks, you have a full spectrum canvas that you can create. It's continuously printed (that's our PIPS) with whatever inks and paper you specify, and you have an incredible amount of printing effects that you can do, and places you can stick things. The dollar investment will make the difference in sales.
