Digipak Printing in Canada

Posted on August 15, 2008 by

This month has seen a big flux of traffic to our web site via our Facebook group, as well as what’s been the passing around of our blog URL. Hands down, the biggest question from our corporate and film clients has been what the main differences are between Digipak product (both CD & DVD) and Standard Jewel Cases.

Digipaks typically consist of a gatefold (book-style) paperboard or card stock outer binding, with one or more plastic trays capable of holding a CD or DVD attached to the inside. There are two different kinds of Digipak product. Standard CD Digipaks and DVD Digipaks, which have an increased height much like plastic DVD amary cases.

Digipaks have some benefits over jewel cases and amary cases that are very important to note when taking into account, that YES…they are more expensive.

  • They have a lot more space for design. Doesn’t seem like much, but if you’re a designer, you’ll agree with me. There are fewer limitations, more surface print area, and interesting different things you can do with design when it’s in a Digipak versus a standard insert and traycard.
  • They’re less resistant to abrasion than jewel cases. No ifs, ands, or buts. If you’re fulfilling any kind of mail order, then you should consider digipaks or CD wallets and sleeves. They tend to arrive much more pristine than a standard jewel case. I just replaced my copy of MGMT’s “Oracular Spectacular”, and it arrived perfectly. Not a digipak…but a CD wallet…but still the same idea.
  • They’re better for the environment, and can utilize recycled stock and vegetable based inks.
  • They’re just cooler. Well…they are. Jewel cased product is fine…but…I’d tend to disagree with anyone who thought a jewel cased piece was cooler than a digipak or card stock product.
