    I love the harsh commentary on the lastest trendy but tiresome visuals/soundbites.
    Made me laugh just hearing it read aloud on the radio.
    The video makes it awesome!

    so im designging a Jewel Case for a band, its just a standard one with a 2fold insert. Can someone give me the dimentions that this must be? including bleed and cut, thanks

    It depends on where you're having it printed. Always talk to the printer before hand - it will save you lots of headaches down the road.

    As for size, if you have a cd case handy, just pull out the insert and measure it with a ruler. I don't have one handy or I'd help you out.

      If you just hop on Google and type in CD insert, you'll come across a ton of companies that have templated with bleed/cut info on them.

      A little leg work goes a long way.

        I'm laying out a doc on an 8.5 x 11. Could someone tell me what size paper I need?

          Keith, weren't you paying attention? Get a ruler and measure it!

              cd's are 4.75x4.75 for a 2fold (6sides in total) just multiply the width by 3. so prints will come to 4.75h x 14.25w
