Dvd Sleeve

A plain DVD sleeve just isn't very interesting! If you want to compel a group of people to purchase or use your DVDs, then you need great packaging. Good, basic packaging just isn't enough, nowadays.

So how should you go about creating a dynamic design? Basically, this endeavor is a marketing move, and you might not be a marketing professional. Take the time to think about layout and design-very important in marketing!

Placing a DVD sleeve order with a print house comes next. If you locate a good commercial printing shop, you can rest assured that your final product will be polished and professional. A full color printer should be able to take your design idea anywhere it needs to go.

Placing a DVD Sleeve Volume Order

So, then-what if you need to have hundreds or even thousands of these sleeves printed? You'll find that the price of each sleeve actually decreases the more you buy. And, when you take time to compare multiple quotes, your final price may actually be surprisingly low!

Using The Printing Revolution in Early Modern Europe as a guide, the advent of the prnntiig press could play as a metaphor for the emergence of networked knowledge. For example, Eisenstein notes that the printed book made possible new forms of interplay between diverse elements and that this is perhaps more significant than the change undergone by pictures, numbers and letters alone. (p27) Like the prnntiig press, the network is the source of power, not that which it produces. Or as McLuhan put it, “the medium is the message.”Much like today’s ubiquitous network, the press gave way to new thought, that the role of the educator or master teacher would become diminished. “Gifted students no longer needed to sit at the feet of a given master in order to learn a language or academic skill. Instead they could achieve mastery on their own, even by sneaking books past their tutors.”(p38) And yet a system of academic structure still exists. Like many futurists, one could fault in the direction of obsolescence of the past, as opposed to augmentation of future technology. Most interesting to me is the role of media, or as some would term it “new media” (where this new media comes from, I don’t know video and text have both been long in existence) in comparison of the new media produced by the press. When I began directing and editing 27 years ago, the act of creating video and film required the skills of many individual “specialists”. For example, a video edit “session” would work much like a recording session, where there would be an editor, an assistant, a graphic artist, a sound designer and an engineer. All of these skill sets have since been consigned to an editor. Eisenstein, by comparison, describes how scribal culture changed when the press was invented. “The new work of prnntiig brought together philosophers, craftsmen, artists and many other disciplines.” (p154)This decompartmentalization can be seen especially during the Renaissance. “The Renaissance was a period of decompartmentalization: a period which broke down the barriers that had kept things in order- but also apart- during the Middle Ages.” (p154)The early days of prnntiig described people who were involved in a multitude of disciplines. The role of scribe/compilator/commentator/author as defined by John Burrow in The Medieval Compendium(p95) can be compared to today’s blogger/video editor/compiler of links/commentator on the web. This role is further determined as being of a quasi-amateur status until the 18th century. (p113)So what do we know about the role of the individual in a ubiquitous network? Like Luther’s first texts, information is abundant, and some texts stand out from others. An individual can make a mark on the network by creating a substantial (and interesting) body of work. Unlike the 16th century, where intellectual property was introduced and created value and a source of income, the network tends to ignore these values. When we dispose of intellectual property, what should replace it, and how will the media maker/content producer of the future find a source of remuneration?
