With a small run, your price will always be high. See if your company
has a generic shipping box (with a colorful design) that can hold your
CD and/or user guide. If so, shrink wrap the CD to the User guide (you
can have that done in small runs at most print shops) and just pop
them in the boxes. You can use a printed sticky label (bonus if you
have one with your company logo) with the specific product info for
the front of the box. Having a CD shrink wrapped makes people think
it's brand new, like a music CD, and gives the impression of a large

Good luck,

I'm working on packaging for a small run of CDs (several dozen). The
difficulty is that getting 4-color offset-printed boxes for a small run is
very difficult, since most printers want quantities in the range of 500 or
more, at the least.

Does anyone have suggestions for other packaging options (preferably
involving an attractive box) that would work for a small CD run?
