Jewel case or digipak?

16 May 2014 21 comments

I’m trying to decide whether I should go with jewel case or digipak for my new album. I personally prefer digipaks, because they seem nicer and more personal. But I also see why many prefer the sturdier and standardized jewel case!

So, which do YOU prefer? See poll on the right!

Jewel case:

    Digipack! Also digital download, because in my country they´re not letting in packages from other countries…

    Juan: What! You’re from Argentina, aren’t you? I’ve sent plenty of CDs to Argentina…. So it should work! :O

    I second digipak! It looks more like a cool book that way. Like a more personal, solid unit.
    And please have digital download available too!
    Cheers from Berkeley, California!

    DIGIPACK!! Jewel cases always end up cracking one way or another. So glad you’re releasing new music :)

  • Andre Larsson said:

    The digipack looks pretty neat!

  • Cheryl said:

    Digiak all the way. iTunes is also great

  • Oscar Skaget said:

    Definitely Digipak! First, it would match 13/8, and jewel cases are way overdone and so boring! I get more of a vinyl feel from a digipak, much nicer. And the digipak is noting I could make by my self, I feel it’s a bit more special.
    Yes I have very clear opinions on this subject :P
    Glder meg til å høre!!!

    Both works for me, although if pressured on the issue I’d say Jewelcase.

    Reasons: digipacks have a tendency to not look very good after being stored for a loong time. Also, jewelcases can be exchanged of they are cracked or damaged, not so easy to restore damage to digipacks.

    Looking very much forward to new material from you!

    Digipak is not only better environmentally, but also more neat to keep in your CD collection if you already have a lot of digipaks, which is mostly what indie records have! Also, nicer when getting it signed if it’s digipak.

  • AnetteSL said:

    I prefer jewelcase, but since your first album is digipak, digipak is better :DD

  • Palox93 said:

    The digipac looks nice

  • Alex said:

    I’m all about the jewel case just because all of my other albums I physically own are the same.

    That being said, digital would also be fantastic! Also, IS IT ALMOST RELEASED YET?!

  • emil said:

    I vote for digipak

  • Kit said:

    I like the digipak best, too. I agree with you it’s a little more personal, and besides, it matches the first album. Jewel cases are so. . . common. :p

  • Nadja said:

    Digipak! Vart kan man köpa skivan sen?

  • FreddeGredde (author) said:

    Nadja: Man kommer enbart kunna beställa den från min hemsida, och få hem den i brevlådan!

    For everyone: You’ll only be able to order the album from the website, and get it delivered to your mail box!

  • Lorelai said:

    Digipack so that it’ll match Thirteen Eight.
    it looks so good though *___* the album artwork is beautiful

  • Małgorzata Szeremietiew said:

    I also prefer the digipak : )

  • Juan said:

    Yes fredde! but there´re new laws in my country (since this year)… This is a big problem because they´re not even letting in pharmaceuticals… But I will definitely buy the digital version if it´s available!
