DVD Case Inserts
DVD case inserts are the informational or promotional materials made of glossy or matte card stock that decorate both the outer and inner sections of a DVD case. The outer insert is sandwiched between the case itself and a clear vinyl entrapment that keeps the insert in place. The inner insert rests behind plastic clips that keep multi-paged panels or booklets from shifting. This insert sits opposite of the disc tray. These inserts serve as a table of contents, chapters, playlists, etc.
DVD case inserts conform to fit standard and slim DVD cases and therefore employ different insert sheet sizes than those used for a jewel case. The dimensions of a standard insert are approximately 7.28 inches by 4.94 inches for the inner insert and 7.125 inches by 10.75 inches for outer cover entrapment inserts that stretch across the spine.
The inserts themselves are simple to use when it comes to professional and at-home assembly. Most DVD case inserts available on the market are die-cut and perforated to streamline printing, separation and case insertion. This insert design helps both the at-home consumer and the professional minimize time on cutting and expensive equipment.
Like jewel case inserts, inserts for a DVD case can be handled professionally or at-home. In order to handle it at-home, one must consider: corresponding printing and paper options, the amount of room allotted inside and outside the case for inserts and a design layout (which can be downloaded free and reliably from a number of online sources). To complete at-home inserts, one must have the patience and time to follow the instructions of the insert design software.
Professional DVD case inserts can be obtained through a duplication or printing service. These services will take 1 to 5 days and allow one to determine how he/she wants the insert to look without having to deal with the time and headaches of at-home design and printing. Additionally, professional services ensure that the artwork, information and overall presentation of the DVD case inserts are completed with the utmost quality and care.
