Custom Printed CD Digipaks
Digipaks are a crossover between paperboard wallets and plastic Jewel Cases in an effort to strike a comfortable balance between the best aspects of both types of packaging. Whereas wallets excel in being somewhat more lightweight than jewel cases, you simply can't beat safety and convenience of being able to snap a disc into a hard plastic shell and stow it away just about anywhere without having to think twice about it.
That's where the Digipak comes in. The plastic tray keeps your disc safe, immobile, and protected, while the full-color, printed paperboard provides enough print area to tell your story, display your lyrics, or show off your spectacular artwork. Thanks to the fact that the bulk of this packaging is made from lightweight cardstock, shipping and distributing discs in Digipaks is also substantially easier.
A Favorite Among Musicians
Digipaks are a favorite choice of many members of the music industry because they are light but strong, provide excellent protection for the CD inside, and have plenty of space for design work. In addition, they aren’t as fragile as Jewel Cases, which makes them an ideal option if you need them to be shipped and handled. They also use far less plastic than Jewel cases, making them more environmentally friendly.
Choosing the Right Number of Panels
Bison Disc’s four-panel Digipak has a print area similar to a Jewel Case. They have a front and back cover and two inside panels.
Your CD is held securely in place in a plastic tray that is glued in place on the paperboard cover. This plastic provides enough space for a spine, on which you can print your disc title. The final package size is 5 ½ X 5 inches (with a thin spine). Our six-panel Digipak can hold one or two discs but with even more room for art or prose.
