Cardboard cd sleeves
      #430103 - 05/03/07 07:43 PM
My band are working on a new EP, and we're looking at getting cardboard sleeves printed for the covers, whilst also on a mission to save as much money as possible. we're getting the CD's properly duplicated, but the smallest order quantity i found for sleeves is 500, and we cant afford the expenditure for this

Does anyone know if yyou can buy flat, unfolded sleevs, which you can print yourself and then fold and glue?

any ideas much appreciated

I've used these in the past.

Sorry but they are pre folded. We've used them for the last two EPs, printing stickers and putting them on the back, which sort of kept in line with the vinyl cds we was using and how some of the vinyl I have from the '80s came.

Not much help (i.e. not exactly what you was looking for), but you can order less than 500.
