When we came across NASA Crash Impact Demonstrations for a post at CP we thought they were oddly beautiful, especially in light of the fact that these crashes were staged for research. OK, just for fun, we started a contest. We’ve quickly matched a couple of these crash clips with a piece of music from Plone’sexcellent For Beginner Piano. Continue reading

Jason, who’s email address places him at a marketing firm in Ohio, has won a Jewelboxing 20pack. We picked his name out of a virtual hat full of people who were kind enough to tell us how many of their relatives they actually like in reference to a new JB product we’re developing. We’ll leave it up to Jason to tell his family which five he was referring to. Continue reading

“When you care enough to burn the very best, don’t deliver it in one of those flimsy, bulk-buy cases. Jewelboxing will send you jackets built to be as timeless as your High Fidelity mix…” -from ReadyMade Magazine, Just on shelves, right this very minute.
Don Bambico writes. “When I first saw your Jewelboxing system, I simply fell in love with the freedom to design all around the case thus making it very eye catching. Having been stuck designing on those boring DVD amaray cases, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try and create something slick with your Jewelboxing system.” Continue reading

It’s a nice looking package for a nice looking video for a great sounding song. Send us a snapshot of your latest Jewelboxing project and we’ll show it to everyone else.

We’re trying a little something different this week. We’ve sold lots and lots of Jewelboxing systems to people who want to get organized by making sweet-looking photo-archives of their family pictures and to send them out as gifts to their friends and relatives. In many cases this, like lots of other things, is motivated by the birth of a child. Continue reading
If you’re making over 500 packages but not, say 10,000, you might want to consider this method. A lot of our customers have found this the most efficient way to handle a job of that size. Buy the cases in bulk from us and then also buy the blank pre-perforated trayliner sheets in bulk too. The reason is that the trayliner die-cut is very complicated, with rounded corners and exact folds for the spine art. It needs to be just exactly perfect to fit correctly between the case backs and the disc-trays. You could make your own die from our templates but it generally takes a couple times to get it right, and that’ll cost you a few hundred dollars. Continue reading
So your friend is turning 40. You’ve got a large stash of quasi-embarrassing photos and even a few home movies. Make him a disc of his life so far. That’s what Brendan did. Continue reading
“While it’s getting easier and easier to create DVDs these days, the final step – creating the packaging – is a little bit harder. That’s too bad because packaging is key for both storage and making a good impression. The Jewelboxing System makes it easier by giving you all the tools you need to put together pro display cases for your reel or film…” Continue reading
Anyone with the tiniest bit of interest in music has, at one time or another, compiled songs onto blank media. And since the days of reel-to-reel, people have been judged by their mix tapes. The songs you choose, the order of the tracks, the theme, even the design (or lack thereof) of the case, can reveal your inner psyche. By just looking at your tracklist, a music fan will likely comprehend you better than your parents, or your psychiatrist, ever will. Continue reading
Alex of o2 Creative Solutions writes, “We are in the process of developing packaging for a six disk set with a short booklet. I was wondering if you offered any multiple disks solutions?” Continue reading
