Why the inside spine of a digipak is blank

A spine of a digipak is the fold of the digipak with about the same thickness of the tray. A lot of people ask why the inside spine cannot have artwork printed on it. The answer is actually yes and no. Yes in the sense that you can still print artwork on it but the printing cost will almost double. For that reason a lot of people choose to leave the spine blank.

The following video explains why.

If for the sake of continuity of your artwork you need to print the inside spine please ask our sales representative about it.

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.
