check out http://www.JewelBoxing.com they may have something of interest for you.

It does rely more on you to create the artwork though. The two-part case is transparent, so it's your printed inserts that give it whatever look you want. They have some design examples on their site.

Jewelboxing is excellent. It's worth checking out Coudal.com (the company behind jewelboxing) as they run regular competitions and entrants usually get a discount code for jewelboxing.

That's a cool alternative for single discs.
Does anyone know of an alternative for multi-disc sets?
I recently did a package for a 6-DVD set. I used 2 3-disc amaray style cases. They are quite bulky.
An alternative for us is the thin single cases, but where can you get a custom cardboard sleeve to hold them together (like the Martin Scorsese Jazz series, or numerous other sets).
The ultimate package is the multi-fold, but these have to be very expensive, such as those used for TV Show DVD sets, often 4 discs which are all in one multi-fold unit. Does someone make a multi-fold with clear sleeves for custom slipart - I'd buy that.

thanks for the ideas. i've used jewelboxing in the past, but because of the custom work involved, i only offer it as an "upgrade" to my clients.

what i'm looking for is anything -- ANYTHING -- more interesting that the "leather" folios i get from art-leather, etc. any kind of unsual packaging. i've found the "tins" and would love more options like this. something in a book form, etc.

surely there are more options than this?

thanks all!

What if you get a wedding-stile photo album - maybe the small kind that holds 3 5x7's per page in sleeves. Get a DVD holder to stick to the inside of the cover, then fill a few pages of the album with some good video stills - which will be from a different angle than what the stills guy took. Obviously video stills are not great, but your average newlyweds will love the extra shots - get them printed at Costco or Walmart on proper photo paper, they look better than home inkjet.
As for the outside of the mini-album, just the names and date on the spine should do it - or get a tinted cellophane bag to deliver it in - with a few sprigs of dried baby's breath or someting - the bride will dig it.

That's my 2 cents.
