If budge, environment, and simplicity are the elements of your plan, consider using simple sleeves instead of the jewel case extravagant. Sleeves with clear window allow your well designed artwork to be seen. When you see there is no need to duplicate the same artwork on the disc to the insert, using sleeves is not only wise, but environmental and practical.
These basic sleeves protect the disc from being scratched. Their light weight makes them perfect for many applications, magazine insert, for example.
New Cyberian offers the following low cost sleeves for your CD or DVD replication projects.
These are 5" x 5" bright white paper sleeves with clear mylar windows for disc protection. The sleeves also have back flaps. Suggested usage: For giveaway CD or DVD.
These 5" x 5" soft polyethylene plastic sleeves allow you to see through the whole disc. Not only the discs are protected during handling, the sturdiness of these sleeves also makes them perfect for disc storage. Suggested usage: With adhesive backing for CD/DVD attached to the back of a book.
If plain paper sleeve is too flimsy for you, consider using tyvek sleeves. Tyvek is a patented material that looks and feels like paper but is much sturdier.
