CD and DVD Inlays/Inserts
CD Inlays are used to slide into a CD case to provide an image or text in the front and back of the case that identifies what's inside. They can be used as a marketing tool or offer relevant information about the CD itself. This is where you would commonly find a company name and the list of contents. The perforation present in the CD Inlay acts as a guide for accurate folding. The folded part provides the information that is going to be displayed on the spine of the case.
CD Inserts conveniently slide into the front of a CD case. We provide full colour printing on both sides of the CD Inserts to provide both an exterior and interior image. They can be used as a branding tool or offer relevant information of the CD contained within.
DVD Inserts are a great tool to market your products using a combination of graphics and text for a DVD. They slide between a layer of clear plastic and the hard plastic of the DVD case. The design and text are the first thing people see when they pick up the case.
CD/DVD Mailers are a preferred way of packaging promotional discs, demos, and informational material for shipping and distribution. Simultaneously, they are also an environmentally-friendly option for packaging CDs and DVDs for sale since Mailers eliminate the plastic jewel case. Like CD/DVD Inserts, Mailers often contain vivid graphics to showcase the style or create interest in the content.

DVD Inserts are mostly 10.75" x 7.1875" and printed on 100# Gloss Text weight paper in full colour on one side (4/0) and are coated AQ 2 Sides.
For CD/DVD Mailers, the most preferred order options are 10.5" x 5.25" with two panels that fold and glue (to form a 5.25" square sleeve), and prints on 14 Pt. Gloss Cover stock.
Two-panel CD/DVD Mailers are generally printed in full colour on one side (4/0) and are coated AQ 2 Sides. This creates full colour on the front and back of the folded Mailer with coating on both the outside and inside.
Please note: three-panel Mailers need to have printing on both sides of the sheet of paper (4/4), as both sides are visible on the third panel after folding and gluing.

CD Inlays are used to customize industry-standard plastic jewel cases. They are used to tailor the look and information people see when they pick up your CD or DVD. Bands often use CD Inlays to promote their albums. Filmmakers can also pass around their latest project contained in a CD Inlay.
CD Inserts are designed with an image for the front of a CD case and extra information on the interior. The interior of the CD Insert is a great place for brief information about a company, artist, or project that everyone will see when they open the case. It can be used as a smart detail to supplement the work on the actual CD.
DVD Inserts usually contain an image for the front and back on the outside of a DVD case. They act as a key visual identification for a packaged DVD. They can be used to be easily identified on the shelves of a store, display online, or to pass on to a decision maker at a meeting. DVD Inserts show what to expect from the disc. Add visual appeal with image-heavy DVD inserts to an otherwise dull, black case.

Our experts suggest adding a QR code to your design to link directly to additional online information. This can be a better way to provide more detail instead of cramming lots of detail in your CD Inlays. You may want to include a performance worksheet or a link to an online video, or even your seminar's schedule. QR codes are linked to an online information site. This ensures that you can change the online information without the need to reprint the QR code.
