Newfangled CD Storage: Jewelboxing
By James Grahame
It's hard to believe the compact disc was introduced over twenty three years ago, in 1982. One thing I fail to understand is why the music industry never bothered to re-engineer the infamous jewel case package that most CDs arrive in. The tiny hinge tabs always break at inconvenient moments, and they crack ridiculously easily.
Well, Jewelboxing heard my silent plea. They make a fantastic line of do-it-yourself CD cases that are perfect for short run music CDs, software, graphic design, press kits, and even mix discs (if such a thing even exists in the modern MP3-enabled world). They cost around $2.50 each and can be bought in packages of 20 and up.
