Is digipak replacing jewel case as the mainstream music cd packaging?

A very common comment from our customers is that “Everyone is going digi now.” I think it’s debatable though.  I am sure some people still prefer the good old jewel cases.  Campers on the digipak side claim that digipaks are less susceptible to broken plastic, look more elegant, and cost less to ship.  On the jewel case camp, old fashioners claim that jewel cases are more durable while the cardboard on digipak tends to wrinkle up and gets decolorized.  I think both sides have their valid claims; it’s just matter of taste and preference.  What do you think?  Do you prefer the good old jewel cases or the new style digipaks?  Please vote on this.

One thought on “Is digipak replacing jewel case as the mainstream music cd packaging?

  1. We’ve actually stopped doing jewel cases all together, cause our clients don’t want them anymore. Digipacks are the new hip indie type of packaging. For gigging musicians, the jewel cases always break when you’re schlepping your merch around. And if you’re digipacks are fading, you’re not getting good quality products.
