The digipak

When looking at packaging DVD’s and CD’s you could consider the Digipak as an attractive modern alternative to jewel box packing.

CD DigiPaks are especially popular in the music industry for CD albums as well as multiple CD disc sets. Digipak-style packaging is often used for CD singles or special editions of CD albums and the tall DVD Digipaks are often used as a premium package for DVDs and DVD sets. CD Digipaks were originally only seen as limited edition or specialist CD products. However improvements in CD production and CD packaging printing techniques has meant that this sleek CD packaging solution is now available at much lower quantities and at much lower prices.

What are digipaks and why are they special?

Digipaks are a custom printed card packaging that can hold one or more CDs which are held in place with plastic trays. These CD flexitrays are glued into the digipak packaging. As it is made mostly from thick card, the digi-pack is practically shatterproof as well as allowing for a fantastic graphic display.

The most common CD Digipaks is the 4 panel which opens like a book. However 6 panel CD Digipaks are also very popular, providing a larger canvas for CD artwork and text information about the CD. The 8 panel digiPaks is ideal when you have a lot to say about your music, with a total of 8 panels of print available, you can be sure there is lots of space to print your photos, band information and lyrics of your tracks. Many UK companies do not have the facilities to manufacture digiPaks, however Replication Centre can offer 4,6,8 and DVD Digipaks.

The DVD Digipak is a popular alternative to the DVD box. It is now widely used for feature film DVD releases which are special editions because it increases the value and creates a premium product.

Digipak-style packaging is made mainly from cardboard which can be considered the more eco-friendly packing solution however it can also be seen as less resistant to wear than CD jewel cases. Replication Centre solves this issue by applying a protective gloss or matt varnish to CD/DVD Digipak packaging.  As an extra plastic coating either matt lamination or glossy lamination gives the Digipack even more rigidity, providing not only increased durability but also making the surfaces more water resistant.

In all, Digipaks give a product an expensive professional look and feel – especially when combined with, well designed CD artwork, for an affordable price.
