Although Bryan and Dawson here at Jewelboxing HQ are scooter buffs, our motorized vehicle fandom doesn’t go too far beyond that. But that’s not to say we don’t really appreciate the whole car culture, with weekends spent buffing and polishing, regularly going to shows, and hunting for new items for souping up purposes. Quite the contrary (just replace “car” with “design stuff” and we’re pretty much the same group of people). And who couldn’t appreciate someone like Taylor Scheinuk, who not only writes about fully decked out Hondas, but was so in love with his own Civic, that he wanted the packaging he holds his music collection in to not diminish the pride he has in his car. And, so, like he said in a recent letter to us: “Enter Jewelboxing.” Here’s from Taylor:
“I own a 2006 Honda Civic LX 4-dr, which comes with an MP3 disc-reader standard. It’s all integrated and such into the dash, therefore I don’t want to touch it but I want all my music. Enter Jewelboxing. For a year or so I just had my discs in dingy slimline cases and I labeled them with, gasp, sharpie. I ran across your product online after I started doing direct-print discs with my (old) printer. I ordered a 30 pack of Standards and got to work. I had the color scheme in my head from the beginning (I’m a big fan of earthen, so brown and tan were in, in, in) and a piece of artwork a friend drew for me of the character from my book series. Some hunting around MSN Search Images got me the other bits I needed and I got to work.”
“Anyway, in the books, the main character eventually acquires a 2008 JDM Mugen Civic Type-R. That’s the vehicle featured all over the case.”
“I also did a mix disc as my aunt’s Christmas present this year and did a case too. I don’t have it with me right now but its excellent. Actually, I think that it may be better than my ‘Dragons in a Civic’ discs.”
“BTW: The reason why it’s ‘dragons‘ plural is b/c I’m drawing my own cover art with all the characters in it, its just taking a while.”
Here’s to hoping the rides are just as sweet in Butler, Providence, New York, Phoenix, Chicago, San Francisco, Pasadena, Highland Park, Washington DC, Huntersville, Boston, Atlanta, Norwich, Fallbrook, Paris, Minneapolis, Calgary, Madison, Savannah, New Rochelle, Columbus and Brooklyn.
