Indie Mixtape Project

16 Mar

I have been making indie mixtapes (or cds rather) for a looong time. [SIDE NOTE: I initially started this blog in ’08 to write about indie music]  Anyway, this year I decided to make a design project of the effort and “publish” monthly mixes that I send to my followers (a small group of friends and family). The recycled cardboard cases have a magnetic closure and the featured bands listed on the back. The sets also have color-coordinated labels that correspond with the seasons.

    I stumbled across your website and I love the way your CDS look! That is awesome packaging. Do you have any instructions on how you made the cardboard covers? I would greatly appreciate any insight on how you went about making them. Cheers!

    Hi Dustin,
    Hard to describe how it’s constructed… I’ll gladly email you a picture of it from other angles to help better show you how it was done! There are also two magnets sandwiched between the folded cardboard to keep it closed and enable them to all “stick” together in alignment.

    Hi, would love to know how these were made also. :)
