CD Manufacturing in Toronto

Posted on November 28, 2010 by

If you’re looking for CD manufacturing, DVD replication, or CD duplication in the Toronto area, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve had a few of our Toronto based clients ask some questions related to print work included in many audio CD projects and data CD projects. The decision on CD packaging or DVD packaging can be a tough one. We thought we’d provide a bit of a rundown with some of the differences in inserts and print work with respect to a traditional jewel case being used for your CD manufacturing project. A standard jewel case for an audio release is still one of the most cost effective way to commercially release a record or package a CDROM for a marketing project or commercial product.

First things first. There are differences in the kinds of inserts you can get in a jewel case.

To the right is an example of a standard 2 panel insert. A single square – printed either 4/0 (full color on one side, and nothing on the other), 4/1 (full color on one side and black and white on the other), or 4/4 (full color on both sides). There’s no fold, and they slip into the front of a jewel case – either traditional sized jewel cases or slim lines.

This is an example of a 4 panel insert. 4 panel inserts fold once – like a birthday card – and can be printed either 4/0 (full color on one side, and nothing on the other), 4/1 (full color on one side and black and white on the other), or 4/4 (full color on both sides). There’s no fold, and they slip into the front of a jewel case – either traditional sized jewel cases or slim lines.

This is an example of a 6 panel insert. They fold twice, and can be printed either 4/0 (full color on one side, and nothing on the other), 4/1 (full color on one side and black and white on the other), or 4/4 (full color on both sides). There’s no fold, and they slip into the front of a jewel case – either traditional sized jewel cases or slim lines.

This is an example of an 8 page booklet. They’re stapled and can be printed either 4/0 (full color on one side, and nothing on the other), 4/1 (full color on one side and black and white on the other), or 4/4 (full color on both sides). There’s no fold, and they slip into the front of a jewel case – either traditional sized jewel cases or slim lines.

Lastly – there’s 12, 16, 24, and up to 32 page booklets. They’re stapled – significantly thicker than a smaller 8 page booklet –  and can be printed either 4/0 (full color on one side, and nothing on the other), 4/1 (full color on one side and black and white on the other), or 4/4 (full color on both sides). There’s no fold, and they slip into the front of a jewel case – either traditional sized jewel cases or slim lines.

The other most significant piece of print in a traditional jewel case package is the traycard. The traycard is that final piece of print that sits in the back of a jewel case – underneath the tray where the disc sits.

These are the core insert and print products that you can get for a traditional CD jewel case project. Questions? Contact us.
