CD and DVD’s are not just for record companies and movie makers. People from all walks-of-life are making their own CD’s and DVD’s to promote their band, package their software, or to create a record of a momentous occasion in their lives. We live in a digital age where the tools to make professional music and videos are readily available to people who just love to record the unique things they do!
At NextDayFlyers, we print a great deal of CD and DVD inserts and we are often astounded by the quality of artwork and the strength of the ideas that people have. From the local band creating their own records to the company that is distributing corporate videos at conferences, inlay artwork has become very sophisticated and promises a treat of sound or vision.
To give you an idea of what people use CD and DVD inserts for Here are some examples of CD and DVD insert artwork that people have created for their personal and business projects:
