Customer comments included:

  • “It took a little time to get used to, but since then it’s been terrific. It is EXTREMELY comfortable and has completely eliminated the shoulder pain I have often experienced because I’m a side sleeper. I would recommend this memory foam mattress to ANYONE who is shopping for a mattress.”
  • “ This mattress is firm yet soft and comfortable at the same time. We went ahead and bought two of them at this bargain of a price and both are very comfortable! Don’t hesitate to grab one of these up. I switched out a $1,800 mattress for one of them I got and am so glad I did! If you are wanting a better mattress but don’t want to pay an outrageous price, then I suggest one of these!”

The Lucid 10 inch memory foam mattress is certainly one of the cheapest memory foam mattresses I have come across and has many happy customers.

Great Design in a Nutshell

Ben Rozens is a guy whose resume is constantly expanding. Starting off in the newspaper business, he spent his time buried in images, working in everything from photo processing to color correction. In 2003, he decided to go it alone and start up his own design shop, Nutshell Studios. At first, he stuck to what he knew: print. But when that wasn’t enough, he decided to pick up 3D animation and motion graphics. For months and months, he poured himself into both learning the trade, all the while building an eighteen minute animated short film called “Fusion Chronicles.” When it was finally complete, he decided the only way to send it out to festivals was by using Jewelboxing. Says Ben, “I chose your system because of the quality and the value of the product. It’s a great service for up and coming filmmakers.” After seeing the trailer for his film, and its fantastic packaging, we’re convinced he’s right.

In order to thank them for being customers, we’re building realistic CGI models of those in Bath, Hollywood, San Francisco, Mercer, Winter Park, Copenhagen, Dordrecht, Jacksonville, Tucson, Santa Monica, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Amherst, Harrisonburg, Tempe, Fremont, Paris, Red Bank, Middleburg Heights, Tonawanda, Newfield, Grove City, Hawthorne, Ames, Truro, Toronto, Pittsburgh, and Fresno.

Birds of a Feather Design Together

Usually Jewelboxing operates on a one-on-one level, as in: we ship out the kits and the person or company who placed the order designs and assembles them. But now we learn that this isn’t always the way of things, as we found with photographer Ben Chrisman and Karen Dahlquist of HappyFish Design, who set up a whole system for Ben, making the whole Jewelboxing process a breeze for his work. First, here’s from Karen:

“I specialize in album design for professional photographers and occasionally I reserve time for my clients to work on projects in other areas, such as corporate identity building like logos, stationery, price lists and, in this case, a DVD package concept. Ben had already been impressed with Jewelboxing and had the boxes and templates already, but he needed some help getting everything designed and set up. I created a design that worked with his existing logo and a concept we’ve been working on in general for other collateral. My goal was to not only design something nice, but to design something that he could easily customize for each of his couples with clearly organized layered Photoshop files with everything labeled and locked accordingly. All Ben has to do is insert the photos, edit the text, change the color theme if he’d like, then just print, assemble and he’s done. The great thing is that it’s easy and every DVD will have its own unique look that matches the newlyweds’ personality and locale, all using just one template design. Ben is an extremely talented (and busy) photographer and I’m certain he’s assembling LOTS of these packages!! Good thing no knives are required!”

And here’s from Ben:

“I started using Jewelboxing because I needed an elegant presentation for the digital files each client receives after their wedding. And since I’m giving these files to all of my wedding couples, it was extremely important to be able to customize each package to fit the personality of each bride and groom. With HappyFish’s brilliant design (which I could have never thought of in a million years without a doubt), I’m able to drop photos into the templates and have everything printed and ready within minutes. Clients are always stunned at the result, almost to the point of being speechless, shocked that their faces are so artfully placed on a professional DVD cover. I couldn’t be happier with Jewelboxing and I think I can say the same thing for my clients as well.”

Let’s hope the HappyFish-esque collaborations are going as swimmingly in Berkley, Redmond, Los Angeles, Boston, Allen, London, Providence, Danville, Kenton, Kansas City, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Stow, Davenport, Chantilly, Naperville, Anderson, Marina del Rey, New York, Ann Arbor, Kirkwall, Washington DC, Edinburgh, Emsworth, Kirtland Hills and Portland.

Important News for the Home Brewer and the Thirsty: Our Disc Labels Find a Valuable New Use

So let’s say you’ve packaged up your project, but you find you have a few extra disc labels left over. Do you hold onto them for future discs? Sure, you could, and that’s maybe the most practical thing to do, but your other option is to follow Christopher Roeleveld, of the food blog Food Crypt, and turn those spare pieces into clever bottle covers for home brewed beer. Much more attractive than just a plain bottle or a piece of masking tape thrown on there, while also quicker than designing some sort of fancy stick-on, regulation-size wrap. We can’t guarantee the labels will stay on once condensation and/or refrigeration gets involved, but as Christopher has proved, they’re sure to stay on long enough for you to snap a quick photo.

 

A big thanks to Christopher for letting us share his photo and here’s to hoping there’s lots more creative re-purposing (and purposing, of course) going on in Long Island City, San Diego, Little Falls, San Jose, Coatesville, San Francisco, Broomfield, Bloomington, Indianapolis, Keller, Fall River, Palm Harbor, Austin, Hagerstown, New York, Venice, Keene, Van Nuys, Conroe, and Santa Monica.

Picture Perfect

Bay Area-based Alison Yin is not just a spectacular photographer, but she’s also a stellar blogger. For the past two years, she’s been writing about her experiences shooting fine art, documentary subjects, engagements, weddings, and anything else she can point a camera at and make look lovely. And lovely the accompanying photos are, often making great use of the wide, expansive space provided by the wilds of California or incorporating the immediate surroundings in clever and interesting ways. As we’re an office filled with a handful of aspiring, amateur photographers, Alison takes the sort of photos we aspire to one day capture ourselves (she’s maddeningly good with an external flash, whereas we’re still getting the hang of it). All that praise now dished out, we were thrilled to find that she had recently posted some images of the Jewelboxing cases she designed for an engagement she’d photographed. Like the rest of her work, it’s terrific. And we’re very happy to have been involved in her process.

Thanks very much to Alison for letting us use the photo of her case and here’s to hoping that people and things are being as nicely lit and captured in Berryton, Sunland, New York, Hidalgo, Los Angeles, Holladay, Turlock, Sherman Oaks, Oceanside, West Monroe, Venice, Hollywood, Pittsburgh, Appleton, Hebron, Manor, Savannah, San Diego, Rochester, Bedford, Waco, Knoxville, Van Nuys, Portland, Saint Martinville, South Pasadena, Camas, Columbia, and Port Washington.

The Power of a Good Valentine’s Mix Disc

A couple of years ago around this time, we checked in with one of our favorite semi-annual Valentine’s Day projects, Dan LaMee’s “Red Roses Mix.” Dan had been making them for a few years now, giving all the single women in his life very well-designed mix discs of all his favorite songs. Thinking he might have done it again for 2011, we just now took a look at his Flickr page, where he’d regularly been posting photos of his King cases. First thing we see: shots of pre- and post-wedding. So congrats all around to Dan and his lovely wife! We probably don’t deserve full credit, but we think his annual mix discs certainly must have upped his standing.

A big congrats once more to Dan and his wife and here’s to hoping Kings and Standards are being put to romantic use in the lovely places like Santa Monica, Jacksonville, Littlestown, Winter Park, Broomfield, New York, Bryan, Portland, Los Angeles, Rogersville, Anaheim, Beaverton, Boonville, Savannah, Venic, Pacific Palisades, Encino, Butler, Buena Park, Durham, and Weatherford.

Well Taught

Phillip Chee, whose work we’ve featured before on two occasions over the past couple of years, is back at it, impressing us again. Previously, he’d used Jewelboxing to make his own soundtrack album for a film that never saw one released and packaging collections of his photography. Now he’s apparently passing on his well-honed casing skills, as we see in his latest Flickr post of his daughter’s first design, a mix disc of her own, using our King cases. And judging from the song selection, listed on the back cover, it looks as though Phillip is also passing along a great taste in music. Continue reading

The Cutting Edge for Shear Beauty

While we’ve featured lots of great photographers’ projects here on the blog and at least a decade’s worth of hair and styling has been done within all the films and various shoots we’ve profiled over the years, never before have the two met directly. That is until we heard from Jon Horton, who recently put together a stellar series of photos for a professional stylist, packaged beautifully for his client using our Standard cases. Here’s from Jon:

“I’m a passionate web developer, designer and photographer with an eye for detail and a desire to help people. I’m currently freelancing in Raleigh, NC where I have the opportunity to work on a variety of creative projects. I absolutely love taking pictures, and I’m especially fond of candid shots, fashion photography and soft lighting.

“I was recently contacted to do a photo shoot to represent the hair and makeup work of a local stylist, Tara Gardiner. We went with a modern, edgy look, and the photos turned out fabulous. As with all my photo projects, I created a custom Jewelboxing case to deliver the final files. The client absolutely loved the packaging, and all of her friends were wondering how something that professional was printed on a home printer! Jewelboxing is the perfect complement to my business that makes every project a success.

“Delivering photos from a photo session is a must, but who likes a sharpie labeled disc? Insert Jewelboxing here. With every photo session, I am able to design a custom case and label to present photos to a client in a way they won’t forget. Jewelboxing is amazing, and using their products has made it so much simpler to create visually stunning packaging that impresses my clients. Thanks Jewelboxing and lots of love for creating such an incredible product!

Big thanks to Jon for talking with us and here’s to hoping clients, both the nicely styled and the slightly unkempt, are being impressed in Des Plaines, Chicago, Northbrook, Candler, Glendale, Columbus, Santa Clara, Olathe, Culver City, Louisville, Spokane, Lindsay, Toronto, Ottawa, Charlottetown, Calgary, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sarasota, Livonia, Charlotte, Ortonville, and Allen.

Every Story Has a Case

A nice surprise to run across this post earlier today. Designer, filmmaker and the force behind the always terrific CreativeXpert podcast, Alan Houser, was kind enough to put together this entry on his blog, extolling the virtues of Jewelboxing. In the post, he shows off his work in a project he recently put together for a client (“While I don’t normally ‘do weddings, funerals and bar mitzvahs'”, he writes, “I do on occasion produce photo DVDs for family, friends, and a few clients.”)

Along with a great selection of photos, showing all the pieces he created to put into an assembled King case, he throws in some behind-the-scenes comments along the way. In one section, you’ll see that he uses that great trick of lining the disc up with the inside tray image (Bryan here at Jewelboxing HQ made this great tutorial showing how you do just that). He also mentions that having a “stomper” to get the labels to fit onto the discs just-so isn’t included in a standard Jewelboxing kit. While that’s true, you can always add one into your shopping cart at checkout (we refer to it by its more technical name, the “Disc Label Applicator”).

A million thanks to Alan for singing our praises and we’re thrilled to see that his project worked out so well. Here’s to hoping there are more thrills, thanks, and happy clients in Allston, Sterling Heights, Myerstown, Dallas, Paia, Manati, Fujimino-shi, London, Parkersburg, North Vancouver, Bountiful, Norman, Port Richey, Savannah, Los Angeles, Fredericksburg, Stockton, San Marcos, Landover, Boise, Leesburg, Fairfield, Powell, Toronto, Fall River, Paris, Chicago, Lake Zurich and St. Louis.

A Sunny Ray in Raleigh

I’ve never been to Raleigh, North Carolina, but if it’s filled with talented and friendly people like Nancy Ray, maybe it’s high time for a visit. Nancy’s a photographer in the city, shooting weddings and portraits (and working out of her brand new home studio), and has been using our cases to package her photos for her clients. She took a few moments out of her busy schedule to talk to us about her work and why she uses Jewelboxing:

“I am Nancy Ray, a photographer based out of the lovely city of Raleigh, NC. I love all things vintage, timeless, classy and whimsical, and I want to reflect that in my photography. My photographs are based on the belief that they are to be beautiful art, as well as something you can look at in 50 years and fall madly in love with all over again.”

“The beauty of Jewelboxing is the freedom it gives you. I create DVD cases that ‘wow’ my clients, with beautiful images, design and text that fits my branding. They are, to repeat my loves: vintage, timeless, classy and whimsical, because I design them to be that way. My favorite part about Jewelboxing is how professional and sturdy they are, with neither form nor function sacrificed! It is the perfect combination and I get so many compliments on the cases alone. A big internet hug to Jewelboxing for what they’ve added to my business! I’d recommend them any day.”

A big internet hug right back to Nancy, with many more to follow for those who just ordered in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Canton, Brooklyn, Lecanto, Portland, Plano, Raleigh, Courtenay, Port Charlotte, Westfield, Westbury, Smyrna, Sault Sainte Marie, Sacramento, Jersey City, San Francisco, Suwanee, Huntersville, Atlanta, Boulder, San Leandra, Wilmington, Seattle, Baton Rouge, New York, and Union Town.

Well-Crafted Accompaniment

Alex Gould, who we profiled for Case Study 11 about his documentary An Interview with James Jarvis has put together what looks like another great film and another terrific case design. The Organist tells the story of cinema organist Dave Nicholas, who has played along with motion pictures at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall Cinema for twenty years, as well as church services for an additional ten years. Here’s the trailer for the film: Continue reading

An Esteemed Body of Design-Conscious Individuals

Besides when people write in to share with us what they’ve put together using Jewelboxing, we’ve had a lot of luck over the years finding interesting projects users have posted on Flickr. We’ve been really fortunate in seeing that people think so highly of the cases that they’ve included them in their photo collections that we figured it was about time that we starting collecting up all of this good grace in one central locale. Thus, we’ve made a new Flickr group for all things Jewelboxing-related, appropriated entitled, “Jewelboxing.” Have a photo, or a dozen, of one of your cases that you’re particularly proud of? Go ahead and post it up and join the group. And now that we have this esteemed body of design-conscious individuals, we can’t promise we’ll have annual cook-outs or lapel buttons and secret handshakes to show your allegiance, we can say that we’ll appreciate it plenty.

Thanks to all of those who have joined already and here’s to hoping there are some flash bulbs a-popping and some photos getting posted right now in Edinburgh, Brooklyn Center, Turlock, Santa Cruz, Zurich, New York, London, Poole, San Ramon, Madison, Chandler, Houston, Addison, Alexandria, Amsterdam, Johnson City, Irvine, Marrickville, West Kirby, and San Jose.

Well-Polished Promotion

Sometimes, when that extra special project comes around, you have decisions to make along the way. You can either do it proficiently and professionally, or you can chose to push it a little further and create something remarkable that will completely floor your clients (and most importantly, make you proud to show it off, too). Such is the case with Harpreet Padam and his design firm Unlike, who decided to go all out in creating a recent job for a client by including our Standard cases within their fantastic presentation kit. Here’s the whole story from Harpreet:

“We’re a small design firm of two in Bangalore, India called Unlike and we work mostly with fashion and lifestyle brands in the domain of packaging, graphics, and accessory design. The picture I sent you was part of a project for Carbon Accessories, a fashion jewellery brand that sells across India through a shop-in-shop sales module and was looking at expanding into exclusive stores. To enable this through a planned and consistent design identity, Carbon reached out to carefully selected designers/architects across the world, inviting them to associate with the brand.”

“At Unlike, we designed a brand presentation (in Flash), a brochure that provided detailed information about the brand, and a design brief to entice and invite these designers and architects. This was arranged inside an acrylic box that was then personalised to each addressee through coloured DYMO embossing tape. A Jewelboxing-packaged CD contained the Flash presentation and a digitally-printed CD label themed on ‘elevating style,’ the brand mantra and also the theme of this project.”

“Before we decided on Jewelboxing (which I was familiar with for such a long time that I don’t even remember how or when, maybe some design magazine?), we were considering buying single-cased Sony DVDs, discarding the DVDs, and using their jewel case. It’s much cheaper that way since a Jewelboxing case costs about 75 Indian rupees (with postage), and the Sony DVD case works out to 35 Indian rupees with a blank DVD to spare. However, we decided on the more professional and in a way ‘elevating style’ with the Jewelboxing case because of its highly reflective nature (maybe due to its internal form, structure, and gloss). This reflection was also relevant, as most of our client’s products are diamond-studded and shine like crazy. So we let the CD inside show through, encased in all that clarity.”

“About the Jewelboxing experience, well it was quick, fast, and convenient. We originally had some doubts, but Dawson cleared them up in a jiffy. I visited your site again recently because we’re planning to use Jewelboxing for another brand presentation for a new client, a silk furnishings retailer, though this time we plan to silkscreen the case, quite like a Marc Newson DVD we have. I’ll order as soon as I get my proposal approved!”

Thanks to Harpreet and the Unlike Design Company for sharing their work with us and here’s to hoping client socks are being knocked off in Machelen, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Grayslake, Washington DC, Anacortes, Tuscaloosa, Seattle, Layham, Whistler, Norwich, Trujillo Alto, Long Beach, Indianapolis, Zurich, Oakland, and Glen Carbon.

Design Software Alternatives

Every once in a while, we get a call from someone interested in picking up a Jewelboxing system, but they’re tell us that they aren’t designers, they just have a one-off project they’re working on, or they just want to give it a try. And because of this, more often than not, they also mention to us that they don’t have any piece of high-end, image editing software. We’ve even gotten the question, “Can I use your templates in Word?” a few times. So while our templates are available in a variety of different formats and, even then, pretty adaptable to anything you want to try opening them, it’s pretty tough to be visually creative in a word processor and even harder to get things to print accurately. But we didn’t want to leave those users who don’t have a need for expensive design software behind, so we’ve done some digging and found these possible alternatives.

If you’re a Mac user, we’ve been big fans around the office of Pixelmator. It’s a powerful, inexpensive image editor that opens our Jewelboxing templates exactly as they should. And coming in at $59, it’s an absolute steal (sometimes it even appears at MacHeist, included with a bunch of other programs for just $49). If you’re running a Mac or PC, for just a little more money, you can always go straight to the leader of image editing, Adobe, for their Photoshop Elements software. It’s a stripped down version of their powerful Photoshop program, but if you’re not needing all of the features and capabilities of the original, Elements will open Jewelboxing templates and let you manipulate them just fine. And lastly, another program we’ve heard some good things about is Serif’s PhotoPlus X2, only available for PCs. It’s another more simplified image-editor with the ability to open several of the file formats our templates are available in.

There are likely dozens more available out there, with the internet creating something of a shareware boom. But whatever program you choose to work in, it’s important to know going in that anything you wind up using will take a little getting used to. Our templates are easy to understand and fairly simple to get right into, but they’re certainly of better quality than any of those “easy disc creator” programs available for a dollar at your local office supply store. So give yourself a little time to experiment, test out the waters with these programs by downloading a demo first if it’s available, and feel free to drop us a line any time you need a hand.

No matter the platform, here’s to hoping things are going well in Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, Venice, Brooklyn, Austin, Marietta, Lincolnton, Dallas, Aventura, Jersey City, Long Island City, Minneapolis, Covina, Washington DC, Rochester, Chicago, Beaverton, Santa Rosa, Florence, New York, Vancouver, Glendale and Oakton.

Documenting Good Design

Over the last couple of days, we’ve been talking with LA-based photographer, Brandon Moreles about a project he recently finished up using Jewelboxing. As is often the case (pun!), we were introduced to Brandon’s work when he sent over a photo of his project, all dressed up extra fancy in a set of Jewelboxing kings. His cover really impressed the whole lot of us, as did the interior. And when he sent over some links to his work, that sealed the deal. Here’s Brandon’s scoop on the project:

“I’m a photographer based out of California particularly keen on long term documentary projects. This one, titled ‘LA DANZA’ is a documentary project on Native American dancers shot over the last few years throughout California. I chose Jewelboxing for this project mainly because most of the DVDs were going to a lot of different people I shot over the years and the king cases gave then that slightly more sleek, stand-out, professional look you don’t see often enough in packaging.

You’ll quite often find that sleek, stand-out, professional look among the fine people in Moorestown, Menlo Park, New York, St. Augustine, Encinitas, Needham, Dallas, Irvine, San Francisco, Newtownabbey, St. Louis, Seattle, Chicago, Honolulu, Washington, Brooklyn, Crystal Lake, Pompano Beach, Elmont, Bend, Mississauga, Atlanta, Coronado, Irvington, San Juan, Basingstoke, Monroe, Potomac, Vancouver, Nashua, Venice, Schaumburg, Perth, and Burnaby.

Wanted: One Mom or Dad With Design Skills

Here’s the deal. We’d like someone to produce a Christmas present with Jewelboxing and document the process for us. In exchange we’ll send you the materials to do it free of charge. Write us at crew at jewelboxing dot com and tell us why you think you should be considered. Continue reading
