    I heart Jewelboxing

    Recently I received a sample of the Super Jewel Box Standard - a *gorgeous* way to package your own CD. A 30pack of Standards goes for $49 (they also have Kings for DVD packaging). You get everything you need to create a slick presentation -- the quality cases, their design templates, trayliners, insert books, and disc labels. You'd think I was a salesperson for these folks, but I'm simply an overwhelmed customer.

    I used my sample to package a CD-ROM of internet marketing goodies for a client. I've been working on some new drafts of their website, plus I tossed on various documents I'd written for search engine optimization, email distribution strategies, a refreshed library of their logos, and a few other marketing-related tools. They liked the contents, but they were floored by the jewelbox. Whoops! I guess the packaging can overshadow the product. I was just happy that they were happy.

    You can think of a million uses for jewelboxing -- mix CDs, home videos, drink coasters, and (coming soon) photo archives. If you're interested in ordering but don't have use for a full 30pack, I'd entertain going in on a package together. Let me know.
