  • Digipak
  • Japanese 8cm CD single long style package ex.1 ex.2
  • 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" or "Slipcover".) Torc 03:03, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
