Marketing Tips

A CD back cover insert rounds out your CD packaging and gives your work a professional look. When used in conjunction with a front cover CD insert, it gives you a complete package that showcases your talent to its best advantage. Printed CD inserts help identify your work and can be used by a wide variety of professionals, including:

  • Musical groups
  • Photographers
  • Graphic designers
  • Composers
  • FX specialists
  • Independent artists

Back cover inserts are typically used to provide detailed information about what is contained on a CD, whether it’s a musical recording, photographs, design samples, or other media assets. It’s a good idea to double check this information for accuracy before you decide to print. Have someone besides yourself look over the design of your CD case inserts and check that the information on them looks correct. This “second set of eyes” can sometimes pick up on errors or slight discrepancies you might have missed.

When you print a back cover insert, you are also printing the spine for your CD. This spine ensures that your CD can be easily identified (and purchased!) when viewed stacked or with only the spine facing out. Because you won’t necessarily be able to control how your CD is displayed, printing packaging that includes a spine ensures your CD will always be seen. Our back cover inserts come to you perforated on each side so that the spine will fit easily inside a standard jewel case.
