Yesterday I ripped the shrinkwrap off of 132 CDs and signed them in preparation for shipping the pre-order packages. I got a little buzzed on Sharpie fumes but my wrists are fine.
The digipaks are made of matte-finished cardstock. They've got a really nice feel, nicer than the standard plastic CD jewel case. I'm glad I went with the matte instead of glossy finish, which tends to get scratched up and fingerprinty.
Tonight I'm unwrapping another 132 so I'll have a stock of them for mailing to press, radio, etc. It's a long-standing cardinal rule that you should remove the shrinkwrap in advance, lest some frustrated sleep-deprived music writer pitch your hermetically sealed art into the wastebasket.
