Options

Any format:

  • Clear vinyl sleeve (picture disc etc.)
  • Paper/Cardboard Sleeve -- (note: in the current ngs database, this is listed as "Paper Sleeve". If we're actually going to have this much detail, some users are going to list "Other" for cardboard or plastic sleeves. Maybe we should just go with "Sleeve".) Torc 03:03, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Funny/Fancy/Novelty pack, perhaps as "Custom Case" (I've got a penguin shaped CD box)
  • Picture frame (very rare but as a collector you come across strangest types of packaging)
  • Wooden box (some Connoisseur Collection CD's came in a wooden box)
  • Lunchbox
  • miniature milk crate (I've been seeing a bunch of these milk crate CDs at sites I've worked at; they have the CD and a t-shirt. BrianSchweitzer 18:29, 22 March 2010 (UTC))
  • None (no packaging: essentially standard for digital media releases.) - .zip files? ;-) --Shepard 17:45, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Gatefold (not a packaging type per se, but a property of certain packaging types that would be useful to catalog).
  • Slipcase (for box sets)
  • A (non-wooden) box


CD / DVDs:

  • Jewel Case
    • Slim Jewel Case
    • Apparently there's a CD Single case which is, in slimness, between the regular jewel case and the slim one: picture, description in German

  • Japanese 8cm CD single long style package ex.1 ex.2
  • Keep Case
  • Ecopack
  • CD / DVD as part of a book, common with training CD/DVD's (in fact this isn't a packaging)

  • Triple Case
  • Quad Case
  • Tin box containing Jewel Case -- jacobbrett 01:35, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
