Printed Card Wallets For CD Duplication.

One of the best value packaging options for CD duplication is the 5″ printed card wallet. This printed wallet is the type of packaging product you will find with Sunday newspaper CD and DVD giveaways. The product is usually made from 190GSM card board and is printed using an extremely high quality offset litho printing press process.

Due to the initial set up cost of manufacturing these wallets the product is considered to be cost effective from 500 units upwards. The card wallet is therefore more widely used with replication rather than DVD or CD duplication of smaller quantities. At very high quantities of 20,000 and over this printed packaging is even cheaper than a basic clear plastic wallet and can even be printed on a slightly more economical grade of board.

The size of a card wallet is usually quoted as 5″ square but more accurately the dimensions are 124mm by 124mm. The size of this wallet means that CD, DVD or blu-ray can easily be accommodated. It is extremely important that the wallet is manufactured to this exact 124mm square dimensions so that the disc fits perfectly in the wallet. If the wallet is too small then problems can occur during machine packing. If the wallet is too large the disc can easily fall out of the wallet during distribution or handling.

Artwork for a printed card wallet should be submitted on a CTP template, in CMYK colour and with image resolution of at least 300 pixel per inch. It is also wide to submit artwork with all text as vector information or outlines rather than rendering text down to pixel information. Another issue to check is that no artwork covers the “glue flap” area of the artwork as this can lead to failure of the print finishing if the glue cannot adhere to the printed area of card.
