A compact disc is an electronic publication that is used by broadcast media to read and use it. It is widely used by enterprises. With the enhancement of the role of optical discs, people not only pay attention to the function of the optical disc but also put forward requirements for the outer packaging of the optical disc. Therefore, we can see a wide variety of CD packaging in the market. So, how can we design the packaging of the disc?
First, the content of CD packaging design
1. Printed content design on the surface of the disc.
There are two types of printing on the surface of the disc: offset printing and screen printing. The number of printing colors depends on the actual needs and the printing process of the disc copying unit.
2. Plastic box face seal and bottom seal design.
This is like the cover art design of a paper book, and the design requirements are higher than the design of the printed content on the surface of the disc.
3. Instruction manual design.
The manual is generally a booklet inserted into the box, indicating the method of installation, use, and requirements for computer configuration. The design of the color cover, illustrations and text layout of the manual is like the design of small books.
4. Paper bag design.
The paper bag is color printed with cardboard and has a plug-in flip.
5. Outer box design.
The boxes come in a variety of forms, the most common being thick cardboard boxes, and the coated paper is printed on the outside of the universal white corrugated box. The latter is more economical and flexible.
Second, the style of CD packaging design
Packaging design must not only have good artistic creativity, but also the cover style of the disc. The surface of the disc, the cover of the plastic box and the outer box must be printed with the name of the electronic publication, the name of the publishing unit, the date of publication, the name of the copyright owner, the name of the production unit and the Chinese standard book number (or Chinese standard serial number), plastic box The back cover and outer box must also be printed with a barcode. The above information needs to be landscaped.
Third, the CD packaging method
The packaging method of the CD is divided into hardcover and simple.
This is packed in a carton. In addition to a small number of varieties of paper boxes made of textiles, most CD-ROMs are in the form of hard paper.
There are two specific forms:
(1) Plastic box packaging.
This is to seal the plastic case carrying the optical disc with a plastic film and use it as an outer package.
(2) Paper bag packaging.
This is a product that is placed directly in a paper bag and is often used in bundled with hardware. The electronic publications that are accompanied by the publication and sale of paper books are also packed in paper bags. Paper bags with optical discs are usually attached to the seals of books and magazines or sandwiched between books and magazines.
The above is an analysis of the content, style and manner of the CD packaging design. If you want to design a CD-ROM outer packaging, you may wish to create a beautiful CD packaging from the above perspectives.
