New Eco-Friendly CD Sleeve

We've got a new CD sleeve in the works - an addition to our line of eco-friendly CD packaging. It's called the CS220 and is a variation of our CS215 eco-sleeve.

The CS220 is a 6 panel (two fold) eco-friendly sleeve that features one closed pocket to place the CD into and then an open-ended tube pocket for the inclusion of a printed folder or booklet.

We expect to have the design template and pricing confirmed within the week... stay tuned!

1. Different Colour Modes - RGB and CMYK
2. What You See On Your Computer Monitor
3. Rich and Vibrant Colour

Graphic Design Logo

A new page has just been added to the CDwest.ca site... don't know why I never thought of it before.

It's a page of the most common graphic design logos that are used for CD manufacturing and CD duplication use. You know... CD audio logo, MAPL, recycled, explicit lyrics, etc.

Hope that's of some use for you!
