  • Jewel Case Art

    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

                Sorry for the late reply, this site seems to crash on me a lot. Thanks for the feedback! I'll take them into account.
                Not sure what you mean by the last line. As in, it's that bad?

                I'd pick the second one since the typography is a bit more distinctive and logo-like. However, I'd add a tail to the two d's -- ones like the a's have.
