Printed Booklets and Inlays
CDRUK prides itself on the production of high quality finished products and have a range of retail ready packaging solutions for all our discs.
We are able to achieve very competitive pricing on booklets and inlays to accompany standard cases, such as the CD Jewel case and DVD case, by 'batching' them up on a sheet with many other jobs and then mechanically inserting them into cases along with the discs.
Our inlays are litho printed and produced out of process colours (CMYK), on 170gsm gloss paper, to the high standard you will see at retail in any record store. As a result of our 'batching' of printed work to a standard format, if special colours, alternative paper stock, weight, sheet sizes or finishing options are required, then whilst we are able to accommodate most requirements, this will be charged at an extra cost, as it is unlikely that there will be any other jobs in production at the same time using that alternative specification.
We regret that we are unable to insert printed parts supplied by our clients as our packing lines are unable to be set-up to accommodate different materials and positioning on each individual job.
Many of our clients are indeed printers themselves and find our ability to 'batch' printed parts and then machine pack cases with speed and ease to produce a high quality finished product outweighs any perceived saving by printing parts themselves.
The front inserts within a CD Jewel Case are produced as 4pp rather than a 2pp in most instances, meaning that the print only needs to be placed on to one side of the sheet before folding, to create a front cover and inside front panel. This 4pp is also likely to be a better fit, gripping the front of the Jewel Case, than a 2pp and will therefore not be as liable to fall out of the case when opened.
In some cases, CDRUK can digitally print small runs (typically under 100 in quantity) of booklets & inlays and pack them by hand.
