Digipack packaging for CD Duplication and Replication

Digipack style card packaging is a modern alternative to the traditional jewel case when you are looking for CD duplication or replication of your latest CD album. The most common format for a digipack is 4 printed pages with a single clear plastic tray to house the CD. Other variations include a 6 printed page or 8 printed page with up to 3 clear or black trays.

Many artists and record labels now prefer the digipack for an album release due to its modern stylish looks. On larger volume manufacturing orders this packaging can be comparable in costs to the jewel case however smaller volumes of 1000 and less are still relatively expensive. Short run orders are high in price due to the high set up costs for printing and assembly of digipacks, for larger volumes these high upfront costs are more absorbed into the final price making the unit price much more affordable.

Designing artwork for digipacks is slightly more complicated than the average CD booklet but most manufacturers or pressing plants are able to provide a computer to plate template with all the exact dimensions, bleeds and specifications. As with most forms of flat paper and card print a bleed of 3mmm is essential during the artwork design. This bleed is required due to tolerances involved when cutting the final printed sheets into the individual pieces of card used to make the digipack. Once cut down to size the card is folded and glued and then the CD tray added to form the final stunning packaging.
