  • CD Cover Size

    I think there is a lot of confusion regarding cd cover sizes. No matter how you slice it or dice it, here is the sizes for a cd cover. I haven't encountered sizes different than these with all of the printers I've used. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. Hope this helps as I've noticed a few posts on here regarding proper cd cover sizing!

    2 panel (meaning a front image with text and stuff on the backside)
    4.7188" x 4.75"
    that equals 119.8562mm x 120.65 mm

    4 panel (thats double the size of the two panel because it's folded in half giving you technically 4 pages)
    4.7188 x 9.5
    or 119.8562 mm x 241.3 mm

    Traycard (thats the back of the cd case and the spine)
    4.625 x 5.90625 this size allows for .25" on both ends for the spine
    or 117.475 x 150.02 mm with 6.35 mm allowed on both ends for the spine

    CD Itself
    Most printable areas of a cd are 116mm x 116 mm with a 27 mm hole in the center

    Right on, Cornfed. And if you need templates for what you are designing, take a look here:

    I use them and they work out great. They have quite a variety.

            I adore listening to Rolling Stones. Right now I'm listening to their last album.

            No, it doesn't.



            You present that as though it's data. It's not.

            I don't know anything about gaming, nor do I have an interest in it. I do know something about magazine publishing, though.
