I have an educational product that is 7 dvds, 2 cds and a 30 page workbook. The dvds and cd's I plan on putting in a 10 dvd jewel case.I looked at "box" packaging companies but they want you to buy 5000. Does anyone know of any stores that sell blank software like boxes that I could then print on my own? Or some solution along those lines?

Any reputable DVD replication company could do this. ....like DiscMasters

This is something you would do as a package. Once you get everything completed, you'd send it off to a replicator for tha packaging

You wouldnt do this at home since you'd need a special printer and doing unit by unit printing and packaging would cost too much. My point is that if you want the special professional looking packaging every consumer is used to, you will need to pay in bulk

Maybe go to a local printer to make the boxes and you can print the individual jewel cases at home?

Ditto to Eric's post. We routinely package DVD's for our productions, and generally no more than 500 dual DVD cases. We have a 10 disc duplicating tower, and a higher end printer for printing the case insert labels, plus a Primera disc printer.

The reason I say 'no more than 500', is because we once did a 500 dual disc job, and afterwards swore that we never would again. Taking into account the actual costs of the materials, you can actually make $$. However, you have to understand that your time is worth money as well, and that level of packaging require automation to be profitable, and not send you straight to the funny farm. 5000 multi-disc packages, and I'll guarantee you'll be on the local news threatening to jump from a bridge.
